I had been waiting for this moment since I first saw the movie as a junior higher (I'm now 24) and read about Billy Wilder's masterpiece trimmed down from its original length. In junior high, I was tempted to save up my allowance to purchase a laser disc player just so I could buy the laser disc copy of PLoSH with the added scenes. I was disappointed to find on this DVD that the missing scenes were merely tacked on in slideshow form. Perhaps I had raised my hopes too high, but this film deserves a much better treatment than this DVD release.
