Buena Vista Home Entertainment has announced the release of several films to DVD this November. Some of the details are sketchy, but here’s what we’ve got:
Boys & Girls
Produced by Dimension, ‘Boys & Girls’ is a sexy romp about two young students who, through a series of chance meetings, find themselves in a friendship that takes a romantic turn! Ryan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) and Jennifer (Claire Forlani) couldn’t have been more different – Jennifer being a free-spirited, experimental girl and Ryan being a studious, repressed nerd. When they first meet at age 12 they hate each other. In high school they loathe each other. But in college they learn that possibly two wrongs can make a right as they champion each other through college exams, failed relationships and dirty laundry. Ryan’s hilarious roommate, Hunter (Jason Biggs), is along for the ride as he tries to coerce Ryan to come out of his shell.
‘Boys & Girls’ will sport an Enhanced Anamorphic transfer and a Dolby 5.1 Surround soundtrack.
The release date is November 14th, and the suggested retail price is $29.99.
From Miramax, comes Hamlet, a contemporary adaptation of the classic play set in New York City, circa 2000 — a world of laptops and limousines. The President of the Denmark Corporation is dead, and already his wife is remarried to the man suspected of the murder. Nobody is more troubled than her son Hamlet (Ethan Hawke). Now, after this hostile takeover, trust is impossible, passion is on the rise and revenge is in the air.
Directed by Michael Almereyda, the film also stars, Kyle MacLachlan, Diane Venora, Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles, Steve Zahn, Sam and Bill Murray.
‘Hamlet’ will contain an Enhanced Anamorphic transfer and a Dolby 5.1 Surround soundtrack.
The release date is November 14th, and the suggested retail price is $19.99.
No Code of Conduct
Martin and Charles Sheen star as father and son cops in No Code of Conduct. Hot on the trail of their city’s biggest heroine dealer, they learn of betrayal on the force. Not knowing who to trust father and son must learn a lesson in loyalty and honor as they work together to bring the criminals to swift justice!
A Dimension production, this film also comes with an Enhanced Anamorphic transfer and a Dolby 5.1 Surround soundtrack.
The release date is November 21st.
Don’t Drink the Water
Woody Allen directed this TV version of his own play (also a film with Jackie Gleason) for Touchstone Pictures. Somewhere behind the early 1960’s cold-war iron curtain, the Hollander family cause an international spying incident when Walter (Woody Allen) takes a photograph in a sensitive region. In order to stay out of jail, the Hollanders take refuge in the American Embassy, which is temporarily being run by the absent Ambassador’s diplomatically incompetent son, Axel (Michael J. Fox).
There are no details for this disc, but it’s safe to say the transfer will be in television’s standard 1.33:1 full screen ratio.
The disc will be released on November 21st.
