    I hope Shout is able to port over the commentary track from the previous Sony DVD release.

    Twilight Time used the previous commentary track on their Blu-ray release of USED CARS. It is one of the best tracks ever. Kurt Russell is having a great time revisiting one of his first adult roles.

    I missed the Twilight Time Blu-Ray. I’m glad to finally be able to put this in my collection.

    I hope that Shout can include the isolated score tracks from the Twilight Time Blu-ray for this release.

    I'm glad that those that didn't get TT's wonderful release are going to get a chance to see/own this deeply underrated movie.

    I have the TT release. I had the previous dvd release as well. This is one of the funniest movies ever and just about criminally overlooked. It’s also a great film for car buffs. Lots of classic iron out there even if a lot of them are in rough “used car” shape. I always cringe when that 57 Chevy gets destroyed!

    I think I'm one of the few persons on this forum that can state they saw this film in a movie theater during its theatrical run. Of course, that movie theater was just about empty with me and maybe 2-3 other people.:) Thankfully, HBO gave it an audience with the latter help of home video.

    The commentary track with Zemeckis, Russell and Gale is a great one. Hopefully it will be included on this new release. Shout Factory sometimes produces new interviews too.

    I was working at a theater that ran it first run and we were very disappointed in the box office. The trailer had been getting a great response for months, so we were at a loss to explain the film's relatively poor performance for us.

    I am also one of those people that saw it in a movie theatre. I also booked many times the film to play as the bottom half of the Drive-in double bills. Some times Used Cars was more popular than the first run top billing. It was a great Drive-in film.

    I bet you almost broke your ribs laughing during the commercial cut into the football game.

    The scene where Gerrit Graham’s character fires shotgun blasts into Roy Fuch’s cars, and blows up the Mercedes is priceless too.
