Your Opinions and Comments
The video transfer is ok. There are no compression sign, but few scratches can be seen here and there.
The DTS and DD 5.1 soundtrack are ok as well. While this is mostly a dialog based movie, there is an occasion usage of the surrounds for some of the driving scenes and for the opera scene.
The menus are all animated with sound.
The extras include 2 commentaries, a behind the scenes look, a musical score soundtrack, 9 deleted scenes, 6 outtakes, a music video and a short questions game.
Bottom line - this movie fails to deliver the charm so necessary in these kind of movies. Still, people who are married more than a decade might enjoy it, in a nostalgic
way, at least.
