Overboard (1987) Widescreen 16:9 Anamorphic ?


Active Member
hi members , i am looking to buy the DVD and on Rewind (a comparison website) the DVD is non-anamorphic. Me personally i don't like this and i've found some DVD-5 and DVDrips which are Widescreen 16:9 and fill the whole screen.

i was wondering if anyone has the original DVD movie and knows which version i should get. There is a newly packaged 2015 version does anyone have it and it is full Widescreen 16:9 Anamorphic ?

You may need to look at the USA BluRay to get a true anamorphic transfer.

The UK and USA DVD releases were always letterboxed 4:3.

Get the Blu-ray review here

UK release £6.69 here and it's in HMV's 5 for £30.

USA release £5.90 here (pretty sure this is region ABC)

The remake looks awful but at least it means the old one gets another rehashed artwork in the US which looks kind of classy:
