Ordinary family man Gene Wilder is innocently parking his car at work one day when hesees Kelly Le Brock doing a Marilyn Monroe routine over a hot air grate. He is immediatelysmitten, and throws his life into chaos pursuing the woman of his dreams. The original Frenchfilm wasn’t anything to write home about in the first place, but it did star Jean Rochefort, whosesomber dignity just begs to be overthrown. Wilder, on the other hand, isn’t that dignified to beginwith.
The sound is limited to 2.0 surround, but the soundtrack (almost twenty years old now)sounds pretty good. There is some vocal distortion when Wilder shouts, but otherwise the audiois clean, and the effects and music aren’t bad.
Some grain is visible in night sequences. While the picture isn’t exactly brilliant, it is verycrisp and clear, with solid colours, flesh tones and blacks. The picture comes in both fullscreenand 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen versions.
Nothing except the trailer, accompanied by trailers for 10 other MGM DVD releases.
Bare bones disc, but the movie itself is barely remembered (if at all).
