The only way to watch this movie is in the Bootleg Edition. Those extra 30 or so minutes takes a really good movie and turns it into something special.

Best rock and roll movie I've ever seen. I've never been able to listen to Tiny Dancer the same way.

Day one purchase and viewing for me.

Will be curious to see if this gets a different master to the UK edition. I doubt it very much, but will be interesting to see.

I have the Japanese BD:


It says "Extended Cut" -- is this the same as the "Bootleg Edition" cut?

I've had the UK version for a while, any one who has not seen it needs to. One of my favorite films.

Ah, I can't wait for this. Definitely a stellar movie.

I totally fell in love with Kate Hudson while watching this.

The UK version is excellent, in my opinion.

I really hope both the theatrical and extended cut is in this edition plus all the extras. I've held off from the UK edition specifically for the theatrical and missing goodies. If the bootleg edition is just the extended cut i'll buy the UK edition. Its cheap.

I love Almost Famous with all my heart but I never really understood people's obsession with Penny Lane if only because I love Zooey Deschanel more

One of my favorite movies of all time. I'm happy with my UK edition. If you don't have this one already I would HIGHLY recommend it.

It will only be the bootleg cut plus extras. Sorry, no theatrical version.
