Lawrence Kasdan's Oscar-winning adaptation of Anne Tyler's National Book Award-winning The Accidental Tourist comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include over 30 minutes of scene-specific commentary from Geena Davis, who was awarded the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her work in the film. She discusses her desire to play the part, how she worked with co-star William Hurt, and what her experience at the Oscars was like. There is a featurette titled "It's Like Life" that appears to be a promotional film from the time of the movie's production, an introduction by Lawrence Kasdan, and over 30 minutes of deleted scenes. The theatrical trailer rounds out this enjoyable package from Warner Bros.

This film is about risk-taking in life. William Hurt and Kathleen Turner play a couple whose only child was murdered. Is it best for them to retreat to a comfortable place or to embark on journeys that have no certain destinations? The characters in this film are wonderful - I wanted to step into this film and speak with them. If you watch this film, you will always think of Geena Davis as 'Muriel'.
I think this movie is great! It teaches so much about life and love and adventure!
