Sometimes you love a show or movie so much that owning a physical copy of its contents is the only way to feel close enough to the story. And while it may seem that nearly every film or TV show is available on a streaming site, I challenge you to find “French Kiss.” It’s simply not available anywhere except DVD. It seems downright sensible to have a physical copy available of your all-time favorite series or film available. You’ll thank us when you’re burning through all 14 “Land Before Time” movies after the inevitable apocalypse.

Here’s a lesser-known fact, the success of this film (and the sequel) would spawn 14 additional movies. That’s almost a day’s worth of content for your kids to consume and they’re all on this DVD set.
