"This DVD release by Guilty Pleasures-Media Blasters is the full length version (91 minutes) I notice some scenes are missing on various releases listed below.
The DVD release for SOMEWHERE TOMORROW is very interesting because several DVD companies notably Digiview/Legacy (US/Canada)-Walmart (US)/ MRA (Australia Region 4)/Boulevard Entertainment-Woman's Own (UK Region 2) and finally AN OFFICIAL RELEASE BY THE COMPANY THAT CO-PRODUCED THIS FILM MEDIA-BLASTERS. I have every copy and studied the quality of the DVD transfer. Digiview, Walmart, Legacy and MRA are very grainy and choppy in places (Poor transfers). The Boulevard Entertainment (UK) and Media-Blasters (US) are perfect DVD picture (clarity/sharpness/no bleeding colours) quality and are clearly direct film transfers. Interestingly Media-Blasters (US) originally released 'Somewhere Tomorrow' on Video in the 1980s.
This is an entertaining twist of a story, with delights of joy and sadness, blended with humour about dealing with death of a loved one, in this case Lori's father. Somewhere Tomorrow was made in 1983. Despite the low budget it's got a great storyline, though you may need to watch it twice to understand the twist towards the end. A charming and moving film.
Thankyou Media-blasters for finally releasing the rare gem of a film on DVD.
Fair low-budget teen romantic comedy starring a young Sarah

"This is a teen romantic comedy/drama with some serious themes about death treated in a way that's very optimistic, to say the least. Teen Sarah Jessica Parker has to deal with her father's death, her mother's moving on to a new romance, and her own romance with ... a ghost. This is apparently pitched at a high school age audience but is well enough done for older folks to enjoy, if you go in for this kind of thing. I thought it had some originality, some good humor, no gaping holes that you can't fill in with a little effort, if you're inclined to. Sarah Jessica Parker sings in it, which is a bit odd given how awkwardly it comes off, but that brief moment may be of interest to fans.
The film is rated PG, has a "family film" feel, with just a little of what might be considered very mild adult situations. The film was obviously low-budget, but the production values and acting are good enough for the story.
As others have said, be careful which release you get. I have the Digiview release, which is very cheap used but only fair in video and sound quality. Still perfectly watchable, at least for me. You can sometimes find the Digiview DVD for a buck at discount stores. Luke73 says the Guilty Pleasures/Media Blasters release is better, so it might be worth the extra cash for you if you're particular."

"" The Secret of Life lies in the certainity of Death..For without it, we would not strive to leave our mark." This is just one of the profound insights that this very simple but extremely inspirational film. This little film has more value than the entire series of the shallow, self indulgent Sex In The City.."
