    8 / 10
    A refreshingly cute romantic comedy starring Stiller, Aniston and Messing.
    Can a romantic comedy starring two of the most beautiful women alive go wrong? Well, actually - it can. However, this one manages to deliver the goods throughout its 86 minutes.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs and the colors are beautifully saturated (especially during the exotic resort scenes).
    The DTS and DD 5.1 soundtracks are very good. There is an occasionally usage of the surrounds and the music fits the movie perfectly.
    The menus are nicely animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the director, 8 deleted scenes (including an alternate opening scene), a behind the scenes featurette and some funny outtakes.
    Bottom line - a cute romantic comedy with a nice disc to match. Enjoy.
