    It's 16x9 widescreen and looks fine.

    Certainly not demo quality, but quite fine and a nice, fun movie. The dishes are done, man! I usually see it in the bargain areas. Buy it.

    According to IMDB, this film has a 2.35:1 ratio. Is this true??

    Yes, 100% it's 2.35:1 and anamorphically enhanced. Looks pretty good too!

    Are you people watching a different movie than I am?

    Last time I checked, the film has an OAR of 1.85:1 and the DVD is in that OAR (and as Luke said, it's 16:9 enhanced). And just because the IMDB says something, doesn't mean it's always correct.

    Matthew is right. It's exactly 16x9 actually.

    Sorry about that guys. I don't know what movie I was thinking of. I was sure it was 2.35:1. I should have said I was 99% sure to allow for error. :b

    NOOOOOOO! [​IMG]

    In all honesty, I just about hit the floor when I read it wasn't 2.35:1. "How dare someone contradict my PERFECT memory of this disc."

    Note to self: Next time actually check the package numbskull. [​IMG]
