You know, it really pisses me off that a load of crap like Rollerball can get greenlighted, get skewered last summer in test screenings, and yet still manage to get released; and meanwhile, New Line Cinema is apparently not yet ready to release the Mr. Show movie, Run Ronnie Run. And furthermore, from the Mr. Show website:

"Run Ronnie Run" still in limbo!

DVD's to join it there!

New Line has put "Run Ronnie Run!" on a side-shelf in the back pantry, behind the tiny individual boxes of stale mini-wheats that your Grandma gives you when you sleep over.

But now, to make matters worse. HBO Home Video is SERIOUSLY considering taking the Mr. Show DVD's, (DVD's which are produced, packaged, and ready to ship to your basement,) and withholding thier release JUST IN CASE New Line decides to release the movie (whenever that might be) so the two can be promoted together. What the fuck?! That might mean never!

Well, it looks like we'll all have to make do with the Ab Fab box set (in stores now).

I mean, COME ON, folks. The release of Run Ronnie Run is guaranteed to recoup its costs; you wouldn't even need to heavily promote it. All you'd have to do, New Line, is tell everyone when you'd release the film in theatres, and the fanatical Mr. Show fans will take care of the rest - they'll see it 3 or 4 times, even. I mean, GOD.
