Was checking out the latest news at BagEndInn, and my jaw hit the ground when I saw that "Chain of Fools", the great crazy ensemble comedy with Elijah Wood as Mikey the Hitman, is coming to DVD - in February!!!!
You can find it here at Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0006J28KK/ref=cm_rv_thx_view/104-1343789-4187136?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance
It's only talking about Region 1 (US and Canada) format, but perhaps the Amazon for Britain will have it in the correct format for that region.

Here's a great review by a viewer that was up at imdb.com. Although I can't agree with her about Scotty (!), all I can say about her first paragraph is "AMEN!":
"The movie industry never ceases to amaze me. How can it be that such a gem as this can be hidden away for so long and only be shown in scattered parts of the globe? It is a travesty and a huge mistake on someone's part. I know for a fact that this movie would go down a storm in the U.K. Yet, three years after it was made, it has never been seen in a British cinema, never been released on video or DVD in Britain and has not yet been shown on TV either. I had to buy a video tape from Australia!
But, make no mistake, this movie is unique and an absolutely brilliant comedy. It is a chapter of accidents, in which nothing ever goes according to plan and the flashbacks, where events are constantly changing, are a hoot.
To me personally, the Orlando Jones, Miss Cocoa character was a bit pointless, but some would no doubt find him amusing. Otherwise, the characters were a treat and superbly played. I single out Steve Zahn who was excellent as the bungling barber, Kresk; Elijah Wood who made me ache with laughter as a "hitman", the new kid on the block; Jeff Goldblum as the wicked Avnet; Tom Wilkinson as the English scoundrel, Bollingsworth; and Salma Hayek who could arrest me anytime. But,oh, Devin Drewitz! Devin Drewitz, was terrific as the hyperactive, Scottie. He was never still for an instant. Butter wouldn't melt in his mouth, but Dennis the Menace had nothing on this kid. Remember the name! The kid will go far."
