    I've heard lots about this but still not seen it. Looks like the only way to buy it is via Amazon, however it's Region 1 DVD and won't play on my players :(

    Are you sure about that? According to the official website, the Amazon.com website, and various other websites it is "Region 0" / region-free / All Regions.

    Some DVD players do still have problems though. I've got one of the Lego Star Wars DVDs that says it is Region 4 and plays fine on the old laptop, but our horrible cheap DVD player refuses to play it (but works fine with every other Region 4 DVD so far).

    Otherwise, do a Google search for your model of DVD player and "unlock" or "region free" to see if you can unlock your DVD player. Many have a way to do it by mucking about with button combinations.


    The Amazon.com website does say that it is in silly American "NTSC" format, which your DVD player or TV may or may not have a problem playing - most these days can auto-switch formats.

    It may work then even if in NTSC, I just assumed being US it would be Region 1. It's ashame it was never released on Blu-Ray though.

    Erica and I own the dvd.....it's very nicely done. Just checked and the case says it is Region 0. Not sure if it helps any, but it is also available for online download now.

    Cheers for the update. I'll have to look into getting a physical copy.

    Finally saw it the other night. It was okay. I found it too short and the humour in it juvenile. I however did learn a thing or two so that's a plus.
