    mmmm bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do? Well it`s more than a shiny d**k with the b**ls dragging behind! Its damn good!
    OK, Its crammed with special features....Firstly it has three music videos including the "proper" video to Diana King`s Shy Guy featuring Will and Matthew.
    Also it features a featurette called the Boom and the Bang of Bad Boys... thumbs down...poopoo. Nothing to do with the film, just some blokes blowing up TV`s.... There is even an extended feature of this called Damage Control which has multi angle access of...yes you guessed it TV`s being blown up... the multi angle feature is slow and sluggish (I have a Pioneer 525). If Multi Angle is always this bad, I don`t think its worth the button on my Remote. You can also watch the film and listen to the score... no speech or sound fx (whoopee!).
    But as for the movie..... excellent. Colors are sepia`d, definition crisp, soud... seciond to none.... story.... hollywood`y.

    Still a pretty darn good movie!
