    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A bitter-sweet love story that is told nicely. OK, so it`s very predictable, but still - enjoyable.
    Both Affleck and Paltrow are doing very good jobs.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the colors are rendered very nicely.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok as well. There`s hardly any usage of the surrounds, but being a dialog driven movie, this is acceptable.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras (mostly on the 2nd disk) include 2 commentaries (one, which is full length and the other which is scene specific), an extensive behind the scenes look, about a
    dozen deleted scenes, some funny outtakes and a music video. All in all, while the extras are good, they hardly justify the 2nd disk.
    Bottom line - a nice drama with some fine acting moments. Try it.
