    I'm surprised to see this title. I don't dislike it; in fact when I rented it several years ago I thought it was kind of funny. I may even pick it up if I can get a good price. Still, it is encouraging to see Sony dipping into the catalog. Now dip deeper.

    I love this movie as well, but it's one that I see no reason to get an HD version of. If I did not already own the DVD, I'd buy it.

    Like I said in the other thread, I'll pick it up if they fix the audio drop out on the "sense of humor" line.

    Agreed, bring on Austin Powers and fasha!

    A buddy of mine loves this film so I'll probably pick it up to check out. Is this the one with the Scottish karate joke? He always says that...

    Just saw this on satellite in HD and barely got through it. Nancy Travis is gorgeous and a scene stealer too boot. Myers next to her looked like an impotent school boy. C'mon Sony, how bout some Jesse Stone titles.

    Fortunately, I never picked up this film on DVD so I'll definitely pick this BD up when it's released. I love this film too. [​IMG]

    This has been making the rounds on HDNet Movies this month. Based on their relationship with Sony, I would bet the Blu is taken from the same master.

    That's nice that the disc is getting a 5.1 TrueHD track. If I remember correctly, the current DVD has only a Dolby Surround 2.0 track (which could very well be the original sound mix, considering the age of the film).

    I'm wondering how the first scene with Charlie visiting his parents is going to look in HD. As it was, you could tell where the chroma key effects were on the DVD version. Just look at where Stuart is on couch and Charlie walks in from behind. The footage where they composited Charlie into the picture is very grainy. Of course, there was no way around that with the way they did the optical effects, but it should be interesting to see how these little imperfections look in HD.

    If so, I didn't notice any audio drop out during it when I watched this tonight? If you can be a bit more specific about the drop out, I can probably give you a better idea.

    Yes, that line. If you didn't notice it then it's surely fixed. On the old VHS/DVD release, the word "humor" was cut off halfway, so the line sounds like "Well, I know everyone always says sense of hu-, but I'd really have to go with breast size."

    Okay, I have some inside information from a good source
    regarding this supposed audio dropout situation.

    The studio has been aware of this complaint for some time and
    took it upon themselves to investigate it. From the original
    release, they found the audio trails off rather than cutting-off.
    It is not a drop out. It was subsequently re-dubbed for a later
    TV version to make the word clearer, which is probably why it
    is assumed to be incorrect when looking at the home video release.

    The studio listened to both, but decided to go with the way it
    was originally released as the most authentic representation.
    The last thing the studio wanted to do was impose a dubbed TV
    version on this film.

    Interesting.

    What was always weird was that in the original trailer it was easily distinguishable.

    I will have to listen to that scene again on the BD, probably tomorrow at the earliest, but I really don't recall it dropping out or trailing off when I watched this Sunday night.
