I just this minute received an email from amazon.com that they have shipped my pre-ordered DVD of this film. Just wanted to let everyone know in case you have been looking for the movie. It is now available.

Title: Re:Elijah's "Chain of Fools" Film

Thanks! I've been wanting this movie for a long time, but it hasn't been available.

Title: Re:Elijah's "Chain of Fools" Film
Post by: magicdancer on February 15, 2005, 11:41:50 am

I subscribe to that fantastic film magazine "Empire" from England and I've noticed that many times films are released on DVDs there long before here. I suppose it all has to do with the various distribution deals the film companies make.

I've just subscribed to another British film magazine called "Total Film." Any of your folks across the pond know anything about it? Sounded pretty good in a blurb I read, but "Empire" would be hard to beat.

Title: Re:Elijah's "Chain of Fools" Film
Post by: elijahs_girl on February 15, 2005, 07:04:02 pm

thats good ;D I realy want all these lij films that I haven't seen before, and the logical thing would be to rent them first to see if i like them...but my video shop is SO badly stocked. I may just order it anyway ;D

Title: Re:Elijah's "Chain of Fools" Film

I think I checked ebay a while back and they only had it for region 2 (which is UK, isn't it) and I needed region 1. So maybe you'll be in luck. Is Europe region 2, also?

Post by: magicdancer on February 15, 2005, 10:51:27 pm

OMG, don't get me started about ebay. I owe them my soul, I've spent so much there. My greatest find was a complete, brand new set of all 18 LOTR fan club magazines. PRICELESS! They have the most fantastic articles about everything connected with the films that I've ever seen. Marvelous photos, too. Hope you get All I Want. It's one of my absolute favorites. Have you ever seen it?

Most people would think I was crazy saying this (though not on this forum) but I'm not really sure. It's Elijah, that's all I care. I do know Salma Hayek is in it and I think it was made in Australia. There was a description of the story line at amazon.com when I pre-ordered it, but I don't remember anymore. I'm sure someone else can chime in here who knows the answer.

Title: Re:Elijah's "Chain of Fools" Film

It's a good movie. :) Strange, offbeat, funny. Elijah gets a good character that broke a bit from his "type."

Barber Kresk (Steve Zahn) is a loser -- he isn't good at his job, he's been tossed out of his home, and his wife just dumped him for the marriage counselor (isn't that a breach of professional ethics?). Now he's depressed, and contemplating suicide. And yes, things get worse: a criminal named Avnet (Jeff Goldblum) has stolen three priceless coins, and decided to blackmail Bollingsworth (Tom Wilkinson), his billionaire partner in crime. After Kresk overhears this, he almost gets shot -- and Avnet ends up impaled on a pair of barbers' scissors.

Now Kresk is in a considerably nastier situation, so he steals the gun and the coins. But things take a sharp turn when he hires a hit man named Mikey (Elijah Wood), and discovers that the hit man is only seventeen and emotionally traumatized by his parents' suicide. And that Kresk is falling for the cop/Playboy model Sgt. Meredith Kolko (Salma Hayek), and that his nephew Scottie (Devin Drewitz) has now swallowed the coins. Now Kresk is in over his head, and has to deal with the strange and sometimes dangerous people around him.


sounds like a riot to me! ;D

Thanks for coming to the rescue, deenan. Yes, this does sound like a riot. It's not listed in my Leonard Matlin book. How long ago was it made?

Chain of Fools was released here in Australia ages ago. I love it! My favourite part is the 'is this chair being used?' part. It's fun to see Elijah as a semi-bad guy. Damn funny movie. ;D

I think there may already be a Chain of Fools thread somewhere. Maybe a Mod can link them. :)

I have only managed to see the Internet clips so far.. the dvd is not out yet :'( Ash Wednesday will be released soon on DVD so maybe (hopefully!) Chain of Fools will be released on Region 2 as well so I can watch it on my Laptop (we will get a multi region dvd player but I usually watch DVDs on my Laptop). Region 1 isn't available anymore and Region 2 isn't available YET ::) Aren't all these different regions annoying? ::) I loved the clips though!! :D

Yes, definitely annoying. I subscribe to Empire and Totalfilm, both British film magazines, and see so many things in them that I'd like to have, but that aren't available in Region 1. I think Asia is Region 3. Are NZ and Australia both Region 2, or are they yet another region?

Hey, congratulations! It's out of print now so it's lucky you got it. What Lij films are you still missing? I have DVDs of everything he's ever made, even films where he just does the voice. Well, everything he's made that's been released so far on DVD I should say.

Title: Re:chain of fools

Thanks Yeux - I now have everything - I think of Lij post 15 yrs old which is fine for me:

Ice Storm
All I want
Bumble Bee
Chain of Fools
The Faculty
Ash Wed
LOTRs

Am I missing anything?

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Black and White
Deep Impact
and Oliver Twist

I'm pretty certain he was just 15 when he did Flipper. There is also The Adventures of Tom Thumb and Thumbelina, if you're willing to settle for "voice only." But you have the ones that are my personal favorites. :P

Yes, it's available on DVD in both regions 1 and 2. You can order it from amazon.com. That's where I got mine.

Incidentally, there is already a Chain of Fools thread.....a page or two back.

Hey!! I keep checking for this at different video stores but none of them have this movie. It kind of makes me mad. >:( This is one of the Elijah movies I haven't seen yet and I really want to see.

I'm guessing the only way I can get this is on the internet...

Thanks for informing. :)
