Entertainment in Video has announced the release of A Bunch of Amateurs for the 27th of April, priced at around £19.99. Artwork can be found below, and the only confirmed bonus material is cast and crew interviews and the trailer.

Jefferson Steel (Burt Reynolds) is a vain and egotistical former Hollywood star, out of work and unable to cope with his fall from the A-list. In a last ditch attempt to revive Jefferson’s career, his incompetent agent (Charles Durning) stumbles upon the perfect role—a prestigious run as King Lear at a theatre in Stratford. Arriving in England, Jefferson discovers to his horror that the Stratford in question is not '-upon-Avon' but in Suffolk, and that his co-stars are not members of the Royal Shakespeare Company, but the local amateur dramatic society. Jefferson is stuck in ‘Stratford-on-Pigfarm’, but continuing press interest means he has to see it through. A hilarious clash of cultures ensues as Jefferson struggles to adapt to the sleepy English village and his star struck host, Mary (Imelda Staunton). Stuck in a world without egg-white frittatas, guava juice, hot tubs and personal trainers, Jackson must put his ego aside and learn to work with the village community.
