    Just received it today and it kicks ass, especially all the extras.

    Excellent extras disk includes interviews with Lea Thompson (yes!), Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell and Charlie Sheen.

    Definitely recommend it for fans of the film.

    You spent money on that?

    One of the silliest movies of all time.

    But I guess it's considered camp now. Or, at least I hope so.

    How much did it cost? That'll definitely be added to my Amazon shopping cart...

    Norman: $17.99. Well worth it.

    Look, don't belittle our cultural touchstones just because you live in an inconsequential country where kids never had to worry about the commie bastards landing at your school and blowing away your history teacher to start WWIII. OK? :D :D :D

    I love this movie, but good Gawd is it awful. But I might pony (!!!) up the $17.99 to see the Ponyboy interview. "I thought we were gonna lose you Pony, like we did mom and dad to the torture camp."

    OK, so what's the biggest heretofor unknown/little-known fact revealed in the extras?

    PB: Probably that Swayze and Jennifer Grey, to quote Lea Thompson, "Fought like cats and dogs," during the filming. Ironic, considering they went on to do Dirty Dancing together.

    Also, that during the final scene with the two brothers, it was about 20 below.

    Speaking of that scene, it was supposed to be the original ending. The scene with lovely Lea and the little turd reaching freedom was tacked on because the scene with the two brothers was too sad to end the film.

    I forgot to mention an interview with Powers Boothe is also included on the extras disk.

    Hope this helps.
