    You forgot to mention that other great special feature on family Universal DVDs:

    - 5 Trailers that you CANNOT skip or press the MENU botton on.

    *Sigh* Why couldn't Columbia be the distributor for this in the US? I guess I'll wait for a region 3 Superbit.

    least we forget, free home french lesson with easily disposable butt-ugly bi-lingual cover.

    but in their defence, le universal do some rather nice "run disney into the ground" looking transfers.

    I've attached the horrible artwork below. If you're interested we've also posted a number of menu shots over on our site. I can't wait to see this one, Jason Isaacs is normally really good:

    The artwork isn't appalingly bad, but one could've hoped for better.

    At the same time, it was a good movie and I am glad to see this is getting a decent release.

    Holy crap, that's one of the worst cover arts I've ever seen. The teaser poster was great:

    The theatrical poster isn't as good, but still...

    Should have used the teaser poster, that cover is really ugly.
    The film was a real surprise, very well made.

    Ouch, the coverart is horrible. I like the theatrical poster best. Oh well, guess I'll upgrade the cover down the road. I'll definitely pick this movie up. It's a very underrated film from 2003.

    Great film. Loved it. Looking forward to buying it.

    Truly awful cover art. Really. Rethink it. Go with the teaser poster - much more evocative and fascinating. If I saw that cover art on a film I hadn't seen before, I would decide NOT to pick it up.

    Agreed, the cover makes it look low budget.

    Looks like an Anchor-bay 1.33:1 special by that cover! [​IMG]

    "The Best Family Film Of The Year!"

    They ain't lying.

    I can't wait for May 5th. It's a great pity that so many people are going to ignore this quite extraordinary adaptation - infinitely better and more respectful to the source than I was expecting.

    A shame about the cover art and the rather pithy-looking featurettes. Mind you, that seems to be the lot for most "special editions" nowadays.

    They should have dumped the French 5.1 track for a DTS track, but what can ya do?
