    Oh my, they`ve done it again. It`s the old "rich slut meets smart yet poor guy" story all over again. Been there. Done that.
    The video transfer is good. There are no visible compression signs and the colors are slightly de-saturated.
    The DTS and DD 5.1 soundtracks are ok. The surrounds are used occasionally for some music cut-scenes, but the movie is mostly dialog driven, thus the soundtrack is pretty mild.
    The lack of translation of the various Spanish sentences in the movie is really annoying.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary, a behind the scenes look and 5 deleted scenes (1 of which is rather essential to the story and was left out for not apparent reason).
    Bottom line - yet another teenage impossible (yet possible) love story.
