It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Is that the original tagline? If so, I'd have to give the 80's a lot more credit

I'm not worthy of making a new thread. We should all just stand in awe of this one.

Why do they need to show the actual disk in the background, anyway? Were we afraid they'd just ship the box?

Never seen it, but always wanted to sine reading this review

I can't believe others have seen and remember this movie. Loved it as a kid in the 80s and thought the crazy town was weird as hell. Got to see it last year and still liked it. Can't say i'll be picking up the dvd though, 1/3 or not.

I think I'll pass this and wait for the Criterion edition.
