Director Ron Howard’s 1986 classic can finally be experienced in high-definition this March from Fox Home Entertainment.

    I'd hardly call it a classic -- more like a disaster -- but whatever :)

    Not interested in buying, but I sure got a good laugh watching Warwick crash and burn on his HBO series and using this movie as a way to have people recognize him
