    8 / 10
    A nice romantic comedy that tells the "old cow theory" story in a hilarious way.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs to be seen, however, a few scratches can be easily spotted. The WTC shots are a gloomy reminder of the September 11th tragedy.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. Since this is not a special effect movie, most of the action takes place in the front channels and in the center channel. However, the surrounds are nicely used to enhance the atmosphere in a party scene.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary, a behind the scenes look and 8 extended scenes (including an alternate ending, which is not as good as the original one).
    Bottom line - a nice movie for a quiet evening at home (no popcorn, though).
