Kenny Ortega's musical Newsies comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible, and the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by Ortega, a pair of featurettes, a short documentary about the real-life incident on which the film is based, storyboards, and a karaoke section. Whatever one thinks of this infamous turkey, Disney/Buena Vista has done a spectacular job with this disc.

"Newsies" was a very nice little movie that just didn't get enough of it's respect that it desurved. I got 2 copies of the DVD for my 17th birthday so that when my parents get older , they can enjoy the idea of a bunch of New York newspaper boys working for Pulitzer and Heirst in the year of 1983/ Buy this movie!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a must have!!!
Oh my gosh! This movie is so great! The songs are so amazing, with catchy toons and hot guys singing them...its great!!!!!!!!! Jack Kelly is so amazing! He's a great actor!! That is THE greatest movie I have ever seen! Definitely go see it! Its hillarious, and moving at places! SO great!!!!!!
I've loved this movie ever since I was kid. I'm now in my twenties with a child of my own. And wouldn't you know this is my son's favorite movie. He knows all the songs, tries to imitate the moves, and ask at least once a day if he can watch it. What makes it so amazing is that he was barely a year old when this film captured his heart and imagination. It's not mindless dreck like many kid's movies these days and makes you want to get up and move instead of sit there and zone out. And instead of wanting to bang my head against concrete as he watches it again and again, I enjoy it too.
i really enjoyed this movie. the songs and dances are very entertaining, and the enthusiasm of the young cast really carries a sometimes weak script. surprisingly, the people who seem to fail the most are ann-margret and robert duvall, two of the major adult characters. ann-margret's character comes across as unnecessary to the entire story, and robert duvall's portrayal of the neurotic and slightly insane mr. pulitzer is interesting, but bizarre. while the movie drags a bit towards the end, it's worth watching the first half.
Newsies was a classic tale about the struggles in 1800's newsboy sales. The musical was an amazing representation of what was happening, even better, through a musical. This musical has amazing winning numbers, and a fabulous cast including the wonderful Christian Bale, Anne Margaret, Robert Duvall and more! This a great family film and this 90's Disney movie is a great movie for all!! 2 Thumbs Up!
And the world will know that the broadway show is better.. Newies, the classic is about a newie (who are kids who sold papers in 1900's) named Jack Kelly. Jack meets Davey and Davey's little brother, Les. But when disaster strikes, the money goes up of the newspaper (the newies had to buy their newspapers). It's up to Jack and the newies to get things back to normal. I said the broadway show is better because broadway show has better dancing and singing. But, if you can't see the broadway show, just buy and listen to the broadwaysoundtrack. Also, in the movie the love interest is Davey and Les's older sister. But in the broadway show, it's the reporter ( which in the movie is a boy).
Newsises is the best Musical, Comedy, and Drama ever made I love Newsies. It is one of the best musicals ever made. What I love about Newsies is that the movie is a Disney movie and its a musical. Love Christian Bale when he was young in Newsies and Little Women and also Ann Margaret did a really good job and so did David the boy from Big before tom hanks appearance. Robert Duvall did a good job and Bill Pullman did a great job and I love all of the songs in Newsies and Newsies is a family movie and it is a Disney movie watch Newsies you'll won't regret it
This is one of the best movies ever made. They call it a box office failure, probably because it wasn't based on filthy sex and stupid crude language but once you see it you will agree that it is one of the finest movies ever made.
BY far the best movie of all time!
I think that Newsies is a totally great movie and I absolutly love it! I have seen it about a million times. Christian Bale and David Moscow are totally hot and the music in it is great!
This Movie is one of the best disney movies i have ever seen. If you haven't seen this movie you Have to. Gabriel Damon is so cute in it.
I have loved this movie since it first came out. I know EVERY line in it! I have gotten ALL my friends hooked. Anybody would love this movie. The music and the dancing are AWESOME! Since you should buy this you should also buy the soundtrack! Spot is my FAVORITE!
I love this movie, The first time I saw it I only saw bits and pieces then my friend let me borrow it and I saw the whole thing and I fell in love with it. I totally love the songs and Spot Conlon
I can not believe that this movie was a bomb! We watched it for years when my boys were young and we all loved it! They knew almost every word of every song and they are actually sports fanatics. It has been our favorite family movie and I'm ordering it on DVD so we can enjoy it together again this year as a family. It is a great movie for old and young alike.
Newsies was the first movie I fell in love with as a kid. It was the first VHS I owned. Now I have it on DVD as well and I'm so pleased with it. I love the special features. It's so fun to see the behind the scenes with their dated 90's outfits! The movie itself is just the best! The music and dancing are great. The story line is just unforgettable. I never get tired of watching it and feel inspired every time! It is also good, clean fun; which is hard to come by anymore. If you like musicals, you will absolutely love this one!
I first watched the NEWSIES in school. I love the newsies, especially SPOT CONLON!!! NEWSIES is one of my favorite movies.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE I HAVE IT ON TAPE AND EVER CHANCE I GET I POP IT IN TO THE VCR AND WATCH. I LOVE SINGING AND DANCING AND NEWSIES HAD THEM BOTH GREAT SINGING AND GREAT DANCES. IT'S NICE TO SEE A MOVIE WHERE EVERYONE IS HELPING ONE ANOTHER AND NOT TRYING TO KILL EACH OTHER.
I FIRST SAW THIS MOVIE WHEN I WAS 12. I AM NOW 24 AND STILL LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS MOVIE
when the newsboys of new your city face the challenges of the powerful- does their union fall apart? or will the break the will of the mighty bill and joe?
I love ''Newsies''. My music teacher had us watch it, and i think my whole school is obsessed with it now!!!!!! i thought the singing and dancing is awesome, especially King of New York. This movie is the best!!!!
We borrowed this movie from the library and watched it. The music is FANTASTIC. Both kids and adults will like the story and the dancing is fabulous. I ended up getting the movie as a gift for my daughter and all my kids have watched it over-and-over!
I also watched this film in school for the first time but forgot all about it till a year later in chours when we were doing some of the songs. I got it for my birthday and got one of my friends hooked as well. Deffinettly a must see.
I know that most of the reviews here are written by a younger crowd, which I am a part of. I LOVED the movie, but so does my older brother, my mother, my grandmother, my aunt and my uncle. My brother actually hates musicals, but he made an exception for The Newsies. Everyone can enjoy this because it is AWESOME!
Best Musical, LOVEIT, what more do I have to say?
