Most folks missed this strange little comedy back in the 80's and it's distribution was scarce at best. After viewing it with college buddies back in the 90's I had to buy my copy at a used video store...for a buck. Ritter and Belushi are great together. Slapstick humor mixed with plain old off the wall comedic story telling makes this one of my favorite 'left of center' comedies. Neighborhood bullies, Russian spies, clown agents, pens from outer space, transexual family members, S&M mistresses, and a glass of water...add it up and you get 'Real Men'.
The DVD looks weak though. No widescreen? Just the trailer? Ok granted, a making of documentary might not be needed for this one, but at least give us a double layer disc so we can choose wide or full. I doubt there will be a special edition of this coming from MGM anytime soon, but It would be nice. I guess I should thank them for putting it out at all. However considering the cult following of this movie and our feelings on the matter, MGM should "try to be more sensative".
