    There was some worries about whether or not "Osmosis Jones" will be presented in anamorphic widescreen, given some of the concerns about what Warner Brothers has done lately with Cats and Dogs & Wonka.
    "Osmosis Jones" is thankfully presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen (only - no pan & scan version) and, from what I've seen so far, it looks terrific.
    Great 5.1 audio presentation, as Randy Thom (Cast Away, Final Fantasy) was the film's sound designer.

    Just watched this movie last night. I thought the picture looked fantastic and the sound was great! Haven't checked out all of extras but did look at the deleted scenes. Seems to be a well done dvd.

    WB doesn't do P&S-only for 2.35:1 titles (even Neverending Story I and II have BOTH formats)

    The Goonies is 2.35:1 and it was going to be a P&S only release. Fortunately, director Richard Donner stepped in and insisted on widescreen. But don't think for a second that Warner wouldn't release a P&S only disc of a 2.35:1 film.

    JUst finished watching this.
    It's a really good transfer with good sound.
    Looks great on a 55' WS HDTV
    Haven't browsed the extras yet.
    If you have doubts about picking this up..DO PICK IT UP!
    But the only parts that are satisfying are the animated parts.
    The live action is pretty lame Farrelly Bros. stuff.
