Going For Broke was on Lifetime Movie Network this morning. I actually got up early (6AM) to watch it, I gotta get a TIVO. :)

The movie was actually better than I thought it was going to be. Ellen is in the movie quite a bit and she does an excellent job as a neglected teenager.

I'm glad I got a chance to see it, I know its one of her harder to find movies, since I don't think it released on DVD/video.

That is not quite correct. The movie is available on DVD in Germany (*Yeeaaa* :victory ; it's called "Sturz ins Verderben" here ) and there's also a Chinese VCD edition (which you can buy on ebay UK :blink: )

Ahh, I stand corrected. :)

I knew there were bootleg DVDs, but didn't know about those.

You can set up an automatic search on ebay so that it will tell you when an item appears.

angie, I posted in the TV schedule thread 2 weeks ago that it was coming on. I'm sorry you missed it. :(

Try TV-now.com, just punch Ellens name in the search and it tells you everything she's in for the next 2 weeks.

Region 2 PAL DVD from Germany, I assume?
I've always been fond of pages, the bibliophile that I am; Ellen's simply another Page, albeit of a more fascinating novel - one of the better stories in the many of my life.

A simple yes would've sufficed, although I should have assumed if it was a European DVD...you'd think the film companies would be smart enough to be greedy and release this stuff worldwide, but nooo.

I give up on society as a whole :rolleyes:

It was on Danish television last night around 2 am, I missed over half of it, because it didn't have the original title, but was called "Kærlighed på spil" (Translated "Love at stake").. :( But what I did see was pretty good :)

At least it makes the rounds; maybe check your listings and it'll pop up again :) sometimes that late-night TV is the best.

Hello Vlad, welcome on board. I can't thank you enough for helping me getting a copy of the Italian DVD of this movie! :humbleness:

Ahahah nothing :laugh:
Thanks for the welcome :)
I'm still trying to find the dvd "Un fantasma in rete" (I downloaded a ghost). I think, if the italian tv forwarded on a channel this movie, there's a possibility to exist a copy on dvd.
"Going for broke" is a very rare dvd, i don't know if in the others country is so rare.
So, another thanks for the welcome and i think i'll enjoy on this site.
Bye. 8-)
