Jez Butterworth directs Nicole Kidman in one of her oddest roles in Birthday Girl, which comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Spanish subtitles are accessible, and the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include a making-of featurette, and a music video. This is a slim disc from Disney/Buena Vista, but it does offer excellent sound and picture quality. This is a worthwhile title for those in the mood for something different.

This is a great movie. Not a usual Nicole Kidman film, but that is what makes it great. A good date movie or with friends. A definite must see.
This film, while not the best ever, was certainly worth the viewing. It is a fun entertaining film that will hold your attention until the end. Nicole Kidman gives a brilliant performance, one of her best.
Nicole Kidman is a goddess. ''Birthday Girl'' (a quirky suspense-comedy far different from her recent period pieces, ''Moulin Rouge!'' and ''The Others'') once again compliments her focused versatility as an actress. The film itself is enjoyable and entertaining, but the real present here is Kidman. ''Birthday Girl'' offers up yet another engaging performance from today's reigning Hollywood queen.
