Spanish subtitles are accessible and the soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials are limited to a trailer. This is an unremarkable disc that Trimark has priced a little high. Fans of Laura Linney and Rob Morrow may want to check it out, but there is little here to interest the average DVD consumer.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Tourette's syndrome is such a frequent punch line that any film attempting to deal with the subject -- especially with humorous undertones -- runs the risk of seeming cruel and exploitive. But this sensitive, if overly familiar, character study connects thanks to its understated approach and the fine lead performances of Rob Morrow and Laura Linney. Morrow, who also directed and co-wrote the screenplay, plays Lyle Maze not as a collection of tics but as a stoic with a carefully concealed vulnerable streak. The character's long-suffering demeanor, self-deprecating humor, and deep absorption in his art ring as true as the actor's carefully crafted physical performance. As Callie, Lyle's best friend's girlfriend and the object of his unrequited affection, Linney fashions a luminous companion piece to her Oscar-nominated role the same year in You Can Count on Me. The film works because Morrow and co-writer Bradley White devote just as much character development and real-life details to Callie and her heel of a boyfriend as they do to Lyle. Never simply a disease-of-the-week "issue movie," Maze is, instead, a thoughtful exploration of unexpected intimacy and inescapable emotional baggage. The film's occasional attempts at out and out humor -- such as a date-from-hell scenario that seems like a cross between Sleepless in Seattle and Rain Man -- don't always succeed as well as the rest. But for all its romantic comedy trappings, the film has a wry, mournful sensibility that colors even its most feel-good moments.
