Special features on both the DVD and Blu-ray Disc include director commentary; the following featurettes: Hacienda Confidential (five minutes), All The Way To...LA? (eight minutes), The Queen Of Mean Gets The Last Word (four minutes), The Man Behind Carlos Santana (seven minutes), Mr. Chili: Too Hot For TV! (three minutes), and The Men Of Delta Farce Salute The Troops! (1-1/2 minutes); five deleted scenes; an eight-minute White People Are Funny gag reel; a photo gallery; previews; and up-front ads.
This down-home comedy finds Larry (The Cable Guy) and his two hapless best friends mistaken for Army Reservists by a tough Army Sergeant. They are sent to the front lines of Iraq to fight for their country, but are mistakenly dropped into Mexico instead. The three Delta Farce members believe they have made it to Fallujah and set out to save a small rural village from what they believe are insurgents. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 looks pleasing, with fairly deep blacks and good shadow delineation. Colors are deep and vibrant, but fleshtones can have a reddish hue. Some scenes can look smeared and soft, but generally images are sharp and detailed. Pixilation is not a problem, but edge enhancement can be. The VC-1-encoded Blu-ray Disc is not as enjoyable
Reason #55 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it has had a consistent editorial perspective since its inception: a no-compromise approach to making home theatre the best that it can be. I have read the magazine cover to cover since Issue 2. Despite staff and reviewer changes over the years, thanks to Gary's leadership this perspective has never changed. As new technologies are introduced, Widescreen Review always provides in-depth analyses of not just the technology itself, but the political and industry forces that may be forcing compromises in its development. You have always sounded the clarion call to stop compression madness or any other madness that may force us to accept a home theatre experience that falls short of what it could be. Thank you!
