    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A cute and silly comic yet action-packed movie, with two guys, who look exactly like eachother`s negative. :)
    As long as you don`t take this movie too seriously - you`d do just fine.
    The video transfer is very good. Both the widescreen and the full screen transfers show no grain nor compression signs.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are constantly used and create a great sound envelope.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary and a behind the scenes featurette.
    Bottom line - a cute and harmless popcorn movie.
