Dave

( 9 )

Overview

Ivan Reitman's smart romantic comedy Dave makes for a nice DVD, though there is nothing on it to get overly excited about. The image, probably the disc's strong point, includes both a full frame version and widescreen, which is framed at the theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is anamorphic. While far from a reference quality transfer, colors are nice and fleshtones look very realistic. The sound is completely adequate for a film like this, and utilizes a Dolby Digital surround track, that, needless to say, is ...

The image, probably the disc's strong point, includes both a full frame version and widescreen, which is framed at the theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is anamorphic. While far from a reference quality transfer, colors are nice and fleshtones look very realistic. The sound is completely adequate for a film like this, and utilizes a Dolby Digital surround track, that, needless to say, is centered up front. Some use of the side speakers creeps in, but it is the exception. As for supplemental features, there are some production notes and four theatrical trailers, plus a short six-minute featurette on the making of Dave that consists of as many scenes from the movie as actual interviews. It's a welcome addition, but not much more than a standard PR piece. Strangely enough, this brief documentary is only available on the full-frame side of the disc. Certainly worth renting, this is the kind of cute, fun film that appeals to all audiences.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Say what you will about Bill Clinton, there's no denying that he's inspired filmmaking like few presidents before him. Love him or hate him, in the '90s there was a film to reflect your opinion, be it aligned with the Rush Limbaugh-inspired conspiracies of Murder At 1600 or the idealized fantasy Clintons like the character played by Michael Douglas in The American President, the kindhearted, strong-willed liberal many of Clinton's supporters always wanted him to be. (See also TV's The West Wing). The Ivan Reitman-directed Dave manages to combine a little of both types of films, offering a jaded, debauched, opportunistic liberal president replaced by a compassionate doppelganger. Dave gets a lot of mileage out of the notion that politics would be better if run with the common sense of an ordinary person. It's a willfully naive, but deeply appealing fantasy here made convincing by Kevin Kline's enjoyable performance and a smart, funny script from Gary Ross. All involved keep a light touch throughout, making this particular fantasy Clinton all the more seductive.

    My wife and I loved it enough to watch it twice in the theater.

    Great film!

    I had watched this film years ago, but it had left a strong impression. It has an inspiring message that there are truly good hearts in the world, after all. Kevin Kline's performance is absolutely fantastic and he is incredibly funny! A must-see.

    Kevin Kline

    Kline proves that he can play dual roles in this comedy/drama. It's a touching movie.

    . . . tomorrow, tomorrow, is only a day away . . .

    This romantic comedy set amidst the power and games of government is a clever, well structured story, that decency and honesty coupled with ingenuity, count for much even in circumstances beyond your control. Packed with cameos - Oliver Stone has a funny bit with Larry King. Ving Rhames delivers the best line - it well summarizes the movie.

    Kevin Kline fan

    This is one of the best movies ever made. It has everything. Comedy, drama, even a really evil baddie. I've seen it everytime it comes on TV so bought the DVD as soon as I had a machine to play it on.

    One of my favorite movies

    I rented this movie not expecting much. Surprisingly, it's funny, romantic and even educational. Kevin Kline is wonderful as Dave, who suddenly finds himself in charge of the country. You may find yourself wishing he really could run the country, given his opinions on some of the issues! Even if you're not a fan of Kevin Kline or Sigorney Weaver, give this movie a try.
