    I loved this movie, and was wondering if it's 16x9.
    Saw it at Hollywood Video, but all I saw on the box was WIDESCREEN

    It's not. I rented it a week ago and it's non-anamorphic WS. Extras are pretty blah too-- hardly a way for Sundance to throw its hat into the DVD market.

    I expected more from the movie, too-- it definitely has its moments but is funnier conceptually than in reality.

    Here is a review of the disc. They liked the movie, but seemed unimpressed with the quality of the disc:

    I was pretty surprised to find out that it doesn't even have captions, let alone subtitles!

    The extras are pretty sparse, although the second half of the "filmmakers snapshots", with Frank Whaley, is cute, and the 5-minute interview with the director is pretty good. Clicking on the "insider's guide" extra brings up "Access this on the ROM side of this disc, or go online". But the disc is only one-sided!

    Decent movie, worth a rental.

    Note that the review linked above says that the disc has subtitles. It does NOT.
