Can anyone comment on the transfer of this DVD?? Thanks
I doubt it'll ever get re-released. It's in WS, buy it
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.
Definitely looks good for it's age.
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
Ok, Jeremy is out of the group...;P
NOOOOOOO! 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.
the PQ of this DVD sucks bad.
DTMTBD is a fantastic comedy, and brings to mind summers between my years in high school & the summer right after graduation (I graduated H.S. in the late 1980's). I used to work at a restaurant during high school (like some of the characters in the film), so could relate to that aspect as well.
The premise of the mother being gone all summer & the kids being left to their own devices/without adult supervision was obviously "fun" at first, until the Christina Applegate character realized that in order to enjoy yourself, you need $ - LOL.
Though the film was released in '91, it definitely has a late 1980's vibe/feel/tone, due to probably having been filmed in 1990.
One of the many funny elements about this films was that most of the kids (especially the older ones) would have been happy if the mom left them on their own, as long as:
1) She didn't leave them with a babysitter, and
2) As long as she gave them enough money to buy junk food & everything else they wanted - LOL.
And this type of thing does happen IRL. When I was growing up back in the '80's, there was a family who lived down the street. The mother would leave her school-age kids with live-in help for months at a time while she spent time out of state, ostensibly to visit her "relatives" - however, I heard later that she just didn't want to deal with her kids, which is why she was gone for so long - LOL.
