Kingpin (1996) Blu-ray

Posted June 10, 2014 01:51 AM by Webmaster

ParamountParamount Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of the Farrelly brothers' Kingpin, starring Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid, Bill Murray, Vanessa Angel and Chris Elliott. The 1996 bowling comedy makes its North American Blu-ray debut on September 9th.

Synopsis: Harrelson is Roy Munson, a pro bowler who seems destined for greatness, or as close to greatness as a bowler can get. But after a run-in with angry competitors, Roy finds himself sadder, wiser and minus one bowling hand. Years later, he meets the na´ve Ishmael (Quaid), an Amish bowling whiz, and Claudia (Angel), a sexy vixen with brains. Together they set out for a million-dollar tournament in Reno. Will Roy and Ishmael win the big match and score fame and fortune? Or will all their hopes and dreams go barreling down the gutter?

The Blu-ray edition of Kingpin features the film's PG-13 theatrical cut and R-rated extended version. Extras include:
  • Commentary by Directors Peter And Bobby Farrelly
  • Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
  • Theatrical Trailer

"We don't have a cow...we have a bull."

A great little comedy. Day one. And thanks, Paramount!

Why does Paramount get to release Kingpin? Wasn't this an MGM production, which would be through Fox HE?

You're positive this is coming from Paramount? Because MGM owns this film. :/

@Nailwraps: yes, the Paramount Home Entertainment site has the listing and details. It notes that the commentary is from the old MGM DVD release, but the upcoming BD release is definitely Paramount. The trailer posted is also from Paramount's YouTube page, where the studio posts catalog trailers for films for which they have distribution rights (or have ownership in some capacity, as several trailers are for titles currently distributed as part of the 600+ release Warner/Paramount deal). Hope that helps clarify.

The UK DVD was cropped to 16:9 so it would be good to have this on blu-ray, hopefully in the correct 2.35:1 aspect ratio.

Kingpin was made by Rysher Entertainment, MGM just distributed the film for them, they don't own it. Since Kingpin's release, Rysher restructured and now has most of it's films distributed by Paramount and most of it's tv shows distributed by MGM.

When La-La Land Records released Shirley Walker's score to another Rysher film (Turbulence) someone asked and they said they had to deal with Paramount, as that's where the library is.

So, yeah... that's the deal.

FINALLY! This movie was long overdue for an upgrade since the original DVD (which I've had since it first came out). Can't wait to own this - it's neck and neck with There's Something About Mary for my favorite Farrelly brothers comedy.

I like that both cuts are included. If I'm not mistaken, the theatrical cut was never released on dvd right? Seems there were more deleted scenes never shown, though. I'll get this. Fun movie.

Wow! I've been waiting for this one for a long time. I love Bill Murray's character in this movie, perfect sleazy character. The scene where Munson is paying the rent in an unconventional way and while he's throwing up in the toilet she tells him "you really jarred something loose tiger.", still sends a shiver down my spine. I can't wait.

Overrated. Randy Quaid is probably the worst casting EVER. Should have been a twenty-something, not a forty-something. And the usual horrible, horrible Farrelly brothers mix-tape soundtrack. Ech.
But it has some funny moments despite these considerable oversights.

I love on the commentary where one or both of the Farrelly brothers say that actor Sayed Badreya (who has a small part in the film) is really a terrorist. it really sounds like they either believe or mean it.

anyone who hasn't seen Kingpin should run and buy it!
