Funny Farm

Overview

Chevy Chase stars in the downhome comedy Funny Farm. Warner's work on this transfer is only a measly 1.33:1 full-frame transfer which sports all the inconsistencies associated with a pan-and-scan disc. While the colors are mostly solid and the black levels well saturated, overall the image retains a soft, hazy feel that will disappoint most fans of the film.

Overview

Chevy Chase stars in the downhome comedy Funny Farm. Warner's work on this transfer is only a measly 1.33:1 full-frame transfer which sports all the inconsistencies associated with a pan-and-scan disc. While the colors are mostly solid and the black levels well saturated, overall the image retains a soft, hazy feel that will disappoint most fans of the film. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English and French. This is a very mediocre soundtrack that features little-to-no directional effects and a small amount of distortion in the dialogue during a few key scenes. English subtitles are also included on this disc. Alas, when it comes to extra features Funny Farm is no laughing matter -- not one supplement is available on this disc.
