MGM Home Entertainment replaces defective This Is Spinal Tap DVD

As we had pointed out in our review of the DVD, there is an error on the upcoming release of MGM Home Entertainment’s Special Edition of This Is Spinal Tap. The film contains hard-burned titles that introduce characters and locations to the viewer and actually add much to the humor of the film. While MGM did the new transfer of the film, these titles had been lost and never made it onto the DVD. After reviewing the DVD we notified MGM of the problem and we have just received a brief note indicating that MGM will indeed replace the disc. Running at full throttle, MGM Home Entertainment is currently producing replacement discs that are sent out to retailers within the next days so that hopefully the defective discs will never even end up on store shelves.
