As you might expect from a new US release, this DVD's sound and picture quality are high. For the most part, the extras aren't spectacular (except for a couple of the deleted scenes) but they're nice to have. On the down side, the DVD's interface is a bit clunky (you have to go back to the menu to select languages) and the menus are ugly. Still, if you liked the movie, this is a solid buy. One hopes that Touchstone's sister company Dimension would follow their lead and start making better DVDs.
