Comments

88 Films releases this sex-comedy on DVD and it appears to be available on Blu-ray - or, at least, is listed so.  There is a 'Director's Cut' of Fairy Tales that is about 4-minutes longer than the theatrical. The film is standard fare but they actually add in some modest musical numbers with the gratuitous nudity and innuendo. 'Hairy' gals and hammy acting. It has some moderate cuteness and the nostalgia factor is in play. 

Anamorphic in the, very, widescreen 2.55:1. It's progressive and looks okay with decent colors and detail in close-ups. Acceptable for the SD format - single-layered with a modest bitrate.

Lossy Dolby and a light score by Andrew Belling with numbers like "Been a Virgin Too Long", "Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar" and "You'll Feel the Magic in Me". Clear and unremarkable. There are optional English subtitles (see sample below) on the region 2 PAL disc.

There is value in the audio commentary by writer Frank Ray Perilli and producer Charles Band who laugh and have a good time joking that the credits are like an obituary listing as most of the cast/crew have passed on. There is also a trailer.

The film doesn't have much merit, only if you carry some fond memories of this era's boundary-pushing with naked gals, mostly simulated sexual activity and some bad puns. Not something I can recommend even being a minor fan of Miss Linnea Quigley.
