Overview

Marriage and love get a wicked new twist in the comedy Saving Silverman starring Amanda Peet, Jason Biggs, Jack Black, and Steve Zahn. Columbia has done a decent job on this title with a very nice 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer (with a full-frame 1.33:1 version on side B). Since Saving Silverman is a fairly new title, it's no surprise that the image quality is well rendered and very pleasing to the eye. Colors are vibrant with flesh tones very solid. A small amount of edge enhancement can be spotted, though the minor amount makes it inconsequential. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is mostly utilized during the presence of background Neil Diamond songs (of which there are many). With dialogue, music, and effects all mixed evenly, this is a nice if underwhelming audio track. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track in English, as well as subtitles in English and French. Saving Silverman's extra features include a humorous commentary track by director Dennis Dugan, an outtakes reel, some thin production notes, filmographies, a link to the website, and theatrical trailers for Saving Silverman, Big Daddy, Whipped, Loser, and The Cable Guy. Regardless of one's opinion of the movie, this disc is a solid edition by Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

Village Voice
As the villain, Peet clearly wields the brains to harness...this movie's decentered male threesome. Alongside Jack Black, she rescues the flick from director Dennis Dugan's flip, hassling rhythms. Black injects archness and fun into the movie mainly by evoking Chris Farley recast as a Method actor. Edward Crouse

Steve Zahn and Jack Black are hilarious in this movie! I am not a fan of Jason Biggs and there are frustrating parts in the story but the funny scenes MORE than make up for that. Plus, who doesn't love a Neil Diamond cameo?
