Director Spike Lee dives head-first into a maelstrom of racial and social ills, using as his springboard the hottest day of the year on one block in Brooklyn, NY. Three businesses dominate the block: a storefront radio station, where a smooth-talkin' deejay (Samuel L. Jackson) spins the platters that matter; a convenience store owned by a Korean couple; and Sal's Famous Pizzeria, the only white-operated business in the neighborhood. Sal (Danny Aiello) serves up slices with his two sons, genial Vito (Richard Edson) and angry, racist Pino (John Turturro). Sal has one black employee, Mookie (Spike Lee), who wants to "get paid" but lacks ambition. His sister Jade (Joie Lee, Spike's sister), who has a greater sense of purpose and a "real" job, wants Mookie to start dealing with his responsibilities, most notably his son with girlfriend Tina (Rosie Perez). Two of Mookie's best friends are Radio Raheem (Bill Nunn), a monolith of a man who rarely speaks, preferring to blast Public Enemy's rap song Fight The Power on his massive boom box; and Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito), nicknamed for his coke-bottle glasses and habit of losing his cool. When Buggin' Out notes that Sal's "Wall of Fame," a photo gallery of famous Italian-Americans, includes no people of color, he eventually demands a neighborhood boycott, on a day when tensions are already running high, that incurs tragic consequences.~Mark Deming

Yet the website still sells that specific edition that is not available. Must be a glitch. I hope this review saves you the trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great movie, arrived undamaged.
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
Do The Right Thing is an excellent movie, I highly recommend it. It arrived in great condition.
I bought these Polk T15 Speakers as a cheap replacement for my bedroom Stereo A/V system. I read very good things from the Reviews at BB and other places. Honestly, in the store I couldn't tell much difference between all of the Bookshelf Speakers lined up for Demo. When I got these home, what a difference!! The reviews were right! These Speakers are Great!! I'm hearing music with much more definition and clarity than my larger bookshelf speakers in our family room A/V system. It makes hearing every song a whole new experience, as I'm hearing music I didn't ever hear before! I'm not a huge Bass fan, but I do like to hear it in music. These little speakers deliver very good bass from their small package! They are way better than any speaker I've ever owned.
I can't EVER see myself paying $250 or more for a pair of speakers, as these are much less $$ than any of the other "High End" speakers out there, and the others didn't sound any better to me. Being that I got them on sale for $65/pair (I guess they go on sale for $50/pair), I feel really good about this purchase.
I will soon be buying another pair for my main family room system. I love music, but I never knew how much I was missing before getting these speakers!! While I think most times you get what you pay for, in this case you get a whole lot more!! Great Speakers Polk and thanks Best Buy!!
Love the packaging and remastered picture to a movie that is already great...also has alot of bonus content with a behind the scenes booklet ... if you love this movie this is definitely the version to get
Just a fantastic movie hands down. Spike Lee really captured true life in this flick. Great soundtrack with music from Public Enemy throughout. Even though the film is 26 years old, the message still holds up today. And it even has predictions that are now a reality. Danny Aiello & John Turturro give fantastic & realistic performances. It's a Spike Lee Joint, and a must have for any movie lovers collection.
Do The Right thing is a classic movie set during a hot summer day in New York and focused on race relations in the 1980s. The movie looks and sounds very good, and is well worth at least a rental. Whether the film is up one's alley depends on how interested they are in the subject matter, but everyone should see it at least once.
