Overview

The Adventures of Ford Fairlane finally hits DVD in this long-awaited packed release from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. Boasting both a full-screen and glorious 2.35:1 widescreen picture, this double-sided disc's quality makes it a perfect showcase for Oliver Wood's slick cinematography, for which the film is moderately known. Audio options are a little more budget, with only a Dolby Digital Surround track for viewers to sink their teeth into. Still, kudos to Fox for understanding the film's cult appeal, as seen with the inclusion of director Renny Harlin's commentary track. As with all of his commentaries, the director does tend to droll on monotonously in his Finnish tongue, but that doesn't take away from the mad stories he has to tell about the making of the film. It's also obvious that the man hadn't seen the film since it was released (in fact, he admits it), which amounts to him spending most of his time either apologizing for or later praising the film's crudeness. The track is especially funny during Harlin's one-on-one plea for aspiring actresses who want to make it in Hollywood or, by the end, his sincere speech on how studios should stop caring about money and support original ideas within the industry (this from the man who gave audiences Driven). Additional extras include a 1990 making-of featurette and the original theatrical trailer, making this disc a fine, cheap buy for any casual fan of Andrew Dice Clay or the film.
