I saw a trailer for this movie some time ago and thought, 'Wow, that's really weird! It's going to be great or awful but I'm willing to take a chance.' So we took it out of the library and loved it! It got the whole family reading Terry Pratchett's Diskworld series, a genre of writing I could not have imagined enjoying before I started. Be careful though: If you see this movie, you may feel compelled to read the 37 books in the series.

Terry Pratchett 'Going Postal' .....

To tell the truth, I never heard of Terry Pratchett or his DISCWORLD books/videos. I bought this DVD because I like ALL things BRITISH. WHAT A SURPRISE !! After viewing the DVD, I researched Mr Pratchett and now I'm HOOKED. I have already bought several MORE of his DISCWORLD DVDs and might delve into the books he has written. This title has just the right elements of drama, comedy, suspense, and a lot of surprises in it. It is best to view the whole movie in one sitting so as to not loose track of the subplots involved. The movie comes with a director's commentary, deleted scenes, cast, crew, and fan interviews, a 'blooper reel. and image galleries. This the LATEST production and more are promised. I sure hope so. Like I said, I'M HOOKED.
