    I realise that region 1 DVDs often have a French track for the French speaking people of Quebec but why have they specified Quebecois French? Is this different to regular French?

    Yes somewhat. Imagine a movie dubbed by Australian actors or American actors... each keeping its accent...
    The main differences:
    1) Accent
    2) Some expressions are used in "Canadian" French but not in "European" French (and vice-versa)
    3) The pronounciation of English name and places (the "Canadian" French will say e.g. 'New York', but the "European" one will say 'Nou Yorrrk') [​IMG]

    Cheers,

    Vincent

    Quebecois is the Ebonics equivalent of the French language. [​IMG]

    Johnny are you thinking of buying the R1 release of "Bend It.."?

    I've just preordered this UKthree pack of Bend It Like Beckham, Anita and Me and (sadly [​IMG]) A Walk to Remember.

    Seems like a good deal.

    However Bend it is Fox in the US is it not? Does the Fox release have more supplements than the UK release?
