Overview

Paddy Breathnach's quirky comedy Blow Dry comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Supplemental materials include behind-the-scenes footage. This movie does a spectacular job of presenting the film, but its lack of extras makes the high-end list price difficult to swallow.

Editorial Reviews

Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
It's fun.... Rickman is fabulous and so is Richardson. The kids are all right. Nighy makes a great comic villain; as a dowdy mayor seduced ever so incrementally into the glam stylings of high-hair culture, Warren Clarke is continually funny. And Heidi Klum alone will melt the snows of yesteryear.

I thought this movie wasn' as funny as it was supposed to be. I thought that Josh Hartnett would've been great, but I didn't really like it, epecially his fake British accent. I'm kinda disappointed that I bought it, actually.

This is classic Alan Rickman. And his performance easily makes up for whatever minor flaws the rest of the film may have. Quirky, humorous, and very fun to watch -- especially if you enjoy poking fun at the highly commercialized fashion industry.
