It is presented in widescreen anamorphic format (1.85:1) with a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track. Supplemental features include animated scene selections, two theatrical trailers, and a TV spot. The disc also has text production notes and an extensive bio section, with 16 cast and 12 crew entries, as well as a 20-minute promo entitled "Comedy Central's Canned Ham: Cecil B. Demented" featuring interviews with Waters and cast members sandwiched between clips from the movie. The true highlight, though, is the director's commentary track; while it is generally scene-specific, Waters' ramblings about such topics as his hometown and the creative process behind the film are what make the track the very definition of entertainment.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Eddy Crouse
A mediocre Hollywood star, Honey Whitlock Melanie Griffith is kidnapped at a film premiere by a group of "cinema terrorists." Called the "Sprocket Holes" and led by director Cecil B. Demented Stephen Dorff, these malcontents bear a faint resemblance to both the SLA the group that captured Patty Hearst, who of course has a cameo and the chic radical leftist group the Weathermen. Waters has confessed to loving the antics of these radicals, so it's hardly a shock their fashion sense and taste for blunt statements "Celibacy for Cinema!" are reflected in Cecil. Fans who fondly remember the desperate fringe days of Waters's early surrealist work particularly Female Trouble, Multiple Maniacs, Pink Flamingos may have felt his Pecker too saccharine and cuddly. Thankfully, Cecil B. Demented is a partial throwback to the fragrant, colorful anarchy of those films. The gags are as fast and sloppy as a good kiss, but never less than amusing. From the corny, iconic tattoos on the terrorists' arms including Fassbinder, Preminger, Spike Lee, Warhol, Fuller, Lynch, and William Castle to the multiplexes boasting the Patch Adams director's cut, no one gets out of Waters's world alive. Incidentally, this cranky, whirligig satire is also his most political film since the civil rights musical Hairspray.
