    Can anyone tell me the difference between the Canadian version of You Can Count On Me and the U.S. version?
    The covers are different, but I'm not sure that the content is.

    I don't have the Canadian version, but here's what's on the U.S. It's a Paramount disc, so it's not overloaded with special features:

    Anamorphic widescreen

    DD 5.1 and DD surround tracks

    English subtitles

    Trailer

    "A Look Inside" -- featurette w/cast and crew interviews

    Commentary by writer/director Kenneth Lonergan

    The Canadian version is missing the commentary track, however everything else from the Paramount version is there, transfer and extras-wise.
    Sadly, I have the Canadian version because it was either that for $20 or $55 to import the US version. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info.

    Jason,

    Once again your always on top of the Canadian side of things.

    I actually have the U.S. version, but needed to find out for a co-worker how the Canadian version was different for a co-worker.

    He could only find the Canadian release at a decent price.

    I really enjoyed Kenneth Lonergan's commentary track. It's been awhile since I've listened to it, but I was very impressed. Don't know if that makes a difference to you or not.

    Thanks Michael. One of those days when I go rampaging and regret my words later!

    Unlike Jason, I do have the U.S. version, however, as these things go, I still haven't listened to the commentary. :b
