    I watched this last night on my 16:9 hdtv with progressive scan dvd player.
    I was so entranced with the quality of the DTS sound, as well as the great picture, that I actually enjoyed the movie!
    The scenes with the firecrackers and guns being shot in the air made some excellent use of the surround channels! And the colors were gorgeous.
    I think the quality of this disc REALLY added to the enjoyment of the movie. If it were a poor transfer with average sound qualities, I do not believe that I would have enjoyed it nearly as much, as the story was average.
    This is just another example of how a great DVD played on a good home theater system can make a otherwise average movie much more enjoyable!
    Just my 2 cents!

    According to WSR most people, even the studio, didn't realize this had been encoded with a center back channel when the movie was originally mixed.
    So, the disc has a DD EX and DTS-ES matrix soundtrack.

    I agree Rob.The picture and sound actually made a good movie even better.I would have to say I was surprised by everything about this movie.I thought it was going to suck but I think the comedy/violence worked very well together.This is one rental I may just have to buy.
