    I just saw this on TV and I really liked it. Since it was on network TV I looked up the DVD on Netflix. What confuses me is how they have the screen formats listed. It reads as follows:
    Screen Formats:
    Widescreen 2.35:1
    Widescreen Anamorphic 1.85:1

    What gives with this? Why are there two widescreen versions of this on one DVD?

    OAR = Original Aspect Ratio, which would be 2.35:1 for this movie!

    I think this DVD presents the movie in its OAR, which is 2.35:1.

    There is only 1 widescreen version on the DVD. The picture is also anamorphic, which means it is formatted for a 16x9 widescreen TV.
