'The Kentucky Fried Movie' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Tue Apr 9, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

John Landis' sketch comedy flick is coming to Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is preparing 'The Kentucky Fried Movie' for Blu-ray on July 2.

From the director of 'Animal House' and the creators of 'Airplane' and 'The Naked Gun' comes the original madcap, most out-of-control spoof of all time. The one that started it all!! Featuring a cast of more than a few but less than a lot, this insane collection of comedy skits includes such now famous sketches as the Kung-Fu parody, "A Fistful of Yen", and the legendary "Catholic School Girls in Trouble." Enjoy the future of moviegoing with the "Feel-A-Round" theater experience. See notable and highly respected actor Donald Sutherland as the clumsiest waiter in motion picture history. Watch such characters as Cleopatra Schwartz and Big Jim Slade tickle your funny bone until it has to be removed surgically!

Directed by John Landis and written by Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker, and featuring appearances by ex-James Bond George Lazenby and 'The Incredible Hulk' star Bill Bixby, 'The Kentucky Fried Movie' is the cult classic you've been waiting for! It's a virtual guarantee (not an actual guarantee) that you will not find another film with as many side- splitting moments of pure unadulterated hilarity as 'The Kentucky Fried Movie.'

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.97.
