Overview

An ensemble cast, including Michael J. Fox, Nancy Travis, Olivia D'Abo, Phil Hartman, and Kirk Douglas, stars in the biting comedy Greedy, a film that proves where there's a will -- there's a conniving relative. Universal has done a very nice job on this 1:85:1 anamorphic transfer that looks almost as good as Olivia D'Abo's skimpy outfits. Colors and black levels are even and show no signs of fading. Medium amounts of edge enhancement were spotted, but since Greedy is an older catalog title, this was not very surprising. Overall the image looks very well rendered and exceptionally clean. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 (in both English and French) and the sound quality is well mixed. The surround feature was engaged more in certain scenes than in others, but since this is a comedy, the zingers and laughs are what matter, not the sound effects. Also included on this disc are English captions as well as Spanish subtitles. For those viewers grasping for substantial extra material, this edition of Greedy won't suffice. Included on this disc are some slim production notes, cast and filmmaker biographies, and a non-anamorphic theatrical trailer for Greedy. For a movie filled with riches and gold, Greedy is surprisingly void of any precious bonus features.
