Overview

Actor Rob Schneider is let loose in the untamed comedy The Animal. Columbia has done a very nice job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. All aspects of this transfer are clear of any defects or imperfections, including edge enhancement, shimmer, grain, or digital artifacting. Colors are bright and clear with black levels solid and even. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is very well produced. While the bulk of the directional effects are used mainly for rock songs or background noise, this track still includes a nice amount of depth and fidelity. No distortion is present within any of the dialogue, effects, or music. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack in both English and French, as well as English and French subtitles. The Animal is presented as a "special edition" that includes a nice array of extra features. To start with, there are two funny commentary tracks, the first by actor Rob Schneider and producer John Schneider, and a second by director Luke Greenfield. Both of these tracks are entertaining with the director's commentary tending to sound a bit dry. "Reel Comedy: The Animal" is a 22-minute feature that includes interviews with the cast and crew, as well as some funny antics by the actors using video recorders. A second, shorter feature titled "Animal Instincts" is basically just a rehash of the first feature with interviews and behind-the-scenes clips thrown together. "Badger Deliver" is a feature that allows the viewer to watch the film and intermittently view deleted footage from the film. Finally there are four deleted scenes presented in non-anamorphic widescreen, a short game titled "What's in Marvin?" that lets the viewer watch Marvin Mange act like certain animals, some filmographies on the cast and director, and some theatrical trailers for the films The Animal, The Adventures of Joe Dirt, Big Daddy, and The Cable Guy. All in all this is a very extensive edition of The Animal on DVD.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
A comedy without fangs, The Animal actually has a strong concept. The film attempts to poke fun at how helpless humans are to control their animal urges, and occasionally it hits its mark. The scene where Marvin (Rob Schneider) must continually excuse himself from dinner with his girlfriend in order to attend to one of the base instincts she is triggering in him provides a clue as to where this film could have gone. But avoiding a box-office harming "R" rating was more important than playing this Darwinian concept out to its fullest. Schneider has a sweet, likable quality in the film, as does Survivor contestant Colleen Haskell, making her film debut as his animal-loving girlfriend, but neither is given a real character to play. Not extreme enough for the gags to flower, nor written well enough to explore the romantic angle, The Animal settles into bland inoffensiveness.
New York Times - Stephen Holden
Adding to this transcendently dumb but very funny comedy...is that Marvin [Schneider] just happens to be the world's least likely candidate for bestiality.... In its goofy way, the movie addresses the moral contradictions of a world in which you have a growing animal-rights movement on one side and a mania for professional wrestling on the other.... Its relative modesty lends Mr. Schneider's deft, ingenuous performance an unexpected glow of innocence.
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas
The Animal is an outrageous and imaginative summer comedy aimed primarily at young males, but it is often so funny that it may well connect to a broader audience... A lot of the fun in watching this movie derives from discovering how deftly Schneider gets away with so much.

    What?

    This movie was not interesting or funny. It just plain sucked. This review was obviously written by someone from Barnes and Noble who's trying to make every product sound good. Don't waste your time on this film.
