Blu-ray Release: Kingpin

October 14, 2014

Kingpin Blu-ray

Today, Paramount is releasing a new edition of the 1996 comedy Kingpin, for the first time on Blu-ray.  After losing his hand and promising career, washed up bowler Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson) starts training Amish prodigy Ismael (Randy Quaid) to compete at a national competition, and hopefully defeat his sleazily successful rival, Ernie McCracken (Bill Murray).

Directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly, right in between their iconic classics Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary, Kingpin is still a lot of fun.  This is a very entertaining and often delightfully ridiculous sports comedy that offers plenty of big laughs, and is worth seeing for the hilarious performances of Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid and of course Bill Murray.

The Blu-ray includes two cuts of the film, as well as commentary with the Farrelly Brothers and a new featurette.

The Theatrical Version is 113 minutes and rated PG, and the Extended Version is 117 minutes and rated 14A.
