‘When in Rome’ Comes to Disney Blu-ray/DVD June 15 Featuring Alternate Opening and Ending

'When in Rome' on Disney Blu-ray and DVDNow available for pre-order on Amazon.com!

An unlucky-in-love workaholic who takes a whirlwind trip to Italy for her sister’s wedding, unexpectedly finds herself pursued by one too many goofy suitors in the hilarious romantic comedy, When in Rome, coming to Blu-ray™ Hi-Def and DVD on June 15, 2010 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. And for the first time ever, the studio is also offering Blu-ray Disc owners an exclusive never-before-scene alternate opening and ending they won’t want to miss!

An ambitious young New Yorker (Kristen Bell), disillusioned with romance, takes a whirlwind trip to Rome where she defiantly plucks magic coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of those who threw them in: a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (John Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnet) and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, how will she know if his love is the real thing?

From the studio that brought you The Proposal, When in Rome is the ultimate, must-own romantic comedy of the year. Available for purchase as either a high-definition Blu-ray Disc or standard-definition DVD, When in Rome is a feel-good, laugh-out loud film that will keep viewers pleasantly entertained.

Bonus includes deleted scenes, bloopers, music videos and more. And as a special incentive to those who purchase the film on Blu-ray Disc, the studio has included an entertainingly funny alternate opening and ending as well as four extra bonus features that provide viewers with more in-depth context to the funny cast and crew who brought this film to life.

Set in the beautiful Italian city of Rome, When in Rome, features comedic performances by an all-star cast including Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Couples Retreat), Josh Duhamel (Transformers franchise), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory), Danny De Vito (Erin Brockovich, Batman Returns), Anjelica Huston (The Life Aquatic), Dax Shepard (Baby Mama) and Will Arnett (TV’s “30 Rock,” “Parks and Recreation”).

When in Rome on Blu-ray has a suggested retail price of $39.99 (US) or $44.99 (Canada) and the standard DVD has a suggested retail price of $29.99 (US) or $35.99 (Canada).
