I love Burgess Meredith in these movies.
Only the second one. The first one was released on Blu-ray last summer. I have this on very good authority.

Yeah, I picked up today at Walmart who matched a best buy ad for $15. Great stuff, I enjoyed both of these films.
Michael - corrected! I somehow missed that when writing the review, but noticed only after posting!
For the past two weeks Best Buy has listed this as being available in their stores and, so far, I have yet to find this in any local retailers. These are a pair of films I've been waiting to own in widescreen and I've so far lucked out.
I've been trying to figure out if both movies are widescreen because I'm hearing reports that only the first movie is widescreen.
From the review at the top of this very thread:
Actually, that only refers to one of the movies. Other retailer websites identify the Blu-ray release as being fullscreen and the technical aspects list only one movie as being widescreen.
It is clear that the 1.85:1 description applies to both films. This figure is listed both in the initial specs at the top of the review and in the "Picture Quality" section, which applies to both films. Even if that weren't unambiguous, there's the following statement, which Mike Frezon already quoted:
Yes, it refers to the second movie--the one you asked about.
Grumpier Old Men was released in WS on LD as I have it. Looking forward to this BR.
I just want to know if anyone can confirm, by way of seeing the actual BR, if both movies are widescreen and if this release is single sided or double sided.
Michael's review addresses both of those questions. I presume he has seen the actual disc.

Maybe you should tell us where you are getting your "reports."
The reason why is because here we have reviews that aren't very specific where other sites are reporting that the release is in full frame. Not only that, but the packaging for the release doesn't really give any information. It lists both movies but doesnt say whether the disk is single sided or double sided or whether one movie or both movies are widescreen.
The DVD version states that the first movie is widescreen and the second is full frame. Yet, the Blu-ray lists technical specs for each movie separately but doesn't list the aspect ratio, separately for each film.
Well, I guess then you'll have to wait for Michael to return to this thread and confirm what he has already written...or else someone else who has seen the disc could confirm.
Mike, that was why I asked ...
I understand that. Except that it seems to me to have already been spelled out in the OP. His review seems quite specific on these points.
None of your information refutes Michael's review (except your assertion that "other sites" are listing "Grumpier" as full frame). You just choose not to believe him.
