This movie presents the question of “Why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free”? David (Jerry O’Connell) is forced to face this question when his girlfriend of 5 years Sarah (Bridgette Wilson) leaves for New York for two months and leaves him with the ultimatum of marry me or move on. He is helped along with his decision by the usually colorful cast of comic side kicks played Ryan Reynolds and Bill Bellamy. This movie just never really seems to get going, with one notable exception…being s scene involving a one night stand gone horribly wrong this movie just never really gets all that funny.
The audio is a 5.1 Dolby digital mix, with not much really happening and use of the rear speakers is very limited. The dialog has no issues and the overall sound quality is lacking from any flaws.
Presented in both a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer and a 1.33:1 full screen transfer the video quality is excellent. Originally shot on high definition there are no film artifacts or problems. The image quality is by far the best part of this disc, the only thing missing to make the video of reference quality is a really good transfer. There are no issues with the transfer per se, it is just missing that last little bit of sharpness to put it over the top.
You won’t find a lot here, but you will find cast filmographies and trailers for Buying the Cow, Jerry McGuire, Stealing Harvard, Tomcats and Trapped.
If you are looking for a quirky or off beat romantic comedy there are far better movies out there then this one. The disc itself is not bad, but it is far from stellar. The audio and video were acceptable, but the lack of extras combined with a bad film bring this disc down.
