This sparkling film features a dynamic score, and outstanding performances by Paul Dooley, Emmy winner Blanche Baker and Oscar nominee Justin Henry.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Celebrating Sixteen Candles, The '80s, and Unforgettable Characters.
