Overview

A love triangle erupts in writer John Hughes' classic '80s drama Some Kind of Wonderful. Paramount's work on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is very nice. Sporting a vast array of crisp colors and dark black levels, this transfer appears to be in very good shape. While a small amount of softness crops up in a few scenes, overall this is a solid effort from the studio that should please fans of the film. The soundtrack is presented in a newly created Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround mix in English. The biggest benefactor of this new remix is the music score -- otherwise, the surround sounds are focused in only the front and center speakers. All aspects of the soundtrack are free and clear of any hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are subtitles in English, as well as a Dolby Digital 2.0 track in English and French. Alas, Paramount has decided not to included even a single theatrical trailer on the edition of the film, making this a disappointingly bare-bones disc.
