Yes, cheap...just like their quality.
In 2007, I bought a PS3 for 4 specific titles; in 2014, half of them haven't been released yet.

I love this movie, and I'm not that big of a Kevin Smith fan, and less a fan of Affleck. But everyone is just perfect in this film, right on down through Jason Biggs and a pretty much cameo appearance from Matt Damon. But George Carlin is especially great, and it's one of his very last acting roles. Day 1 purchase, even if it's Echo Bridge it has to be better than the DVD.

What extended cut??? The DVD is 102 minutes, and that's the only run time IMDB lists for it.

Well, didn't Echo Bridge do Robert Rodriguez's Road Racers? There's some hope this could have some new extras.

Echo Bridge does not treat their films with kindness and respect. Only Godzilla and Degrassi get out unscathed.

Really disappointing that Echo Bridge had to be the one to get this. Other than a couple of rarities, the Lionsgate releases of Miramax movies have been pretty good. If it's in the proper aspect ratio, it's a start, but I generally refuse to buy any movies without subtitles. I was waiting on this to finally come out too.

As long as it's in 2.35:1 and contains the bonus features from the DVD I'm on board. Love me some Kevin Smith. This movie is very underrated.

"What extended cut??? The DVD is 102 minutes, and that's the only run time IMDB lists for it."

In the dvd commentary, Kevin Smith said an extended cut was coming "later" and it wasn't available on that release because of music rights issues. That was 2004, so the earliest it could come out was 2005. 2005 is the time Bob and Harvey Weinstein left Miramax and started up their own company, taking Kevin Smith with them. Disney didn't really have any use for Miramax/Dimension titles,and Kevin's loyalty to the Weinsteins, probably put brakes to this release. The movie didn't make a nickle, and dvd sales were soft, so in Disney's POV why spent the extra cash for a title that won't sell anyway. Still kind of surprised that Lionsgate didn't pick up this title as well, but then again it takes place outside of the View Askew Universe

Again, Echo Bridge. I doubt they'll include the correct aspect ratio.

Anyone disappointed in the fact that EB is releasing Jersey Girl there is always the one from Spain. I don't know if it is region free but it is out there. It was on my list to buy next big order I placed from Europe if the price was right.

Thanks for the info, I rarely watch extra features/commentary so I missed that. Echo Bridge re-released this on DVD in 2011 and its run time is also 102 minutes, so one would assume an extended cut never happened. Yeah, it was a box office flop and always dirt cheap on home video - the 2011 Echo Bridge DVD re-release is only $5.99 at Amazon and as cheap as $2.98 from 3rd party sellers. I've almost bought it a couple times to see if it is any better than the 2004 Miramax DVD, but now I'll wait to May for the BD.

Agreed. I don't really understand all the hate for it. Day one purchase for me assuming it is a big improvement over the DVD.

The extended cut has been screened in public a bunch of times, most recently (I think) at the last Vulgarthon in LA. By all accounts, it's a much different (and much better) version of the movie.

So it exists. All someone probably has to do is ask him for it.

I never did, either. It seemed like trashing Smith and, especially, Affleck was the thing to do at the time. Having Lopez pop up in the movie made the target even greater since the media was having a field day going after those two. Affleck is fantastic in this movie and it's easily Smith's most commercial (and arguably most accomplished) movie.
