Overview

Andrew Bergman's gangster comedy The Freshman comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English, Spanish, and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. Subtitles are accessible in all three of these languages as well. Supplemental materials include some theatrical trailers. This solid disc will please fans of the film and interest anybody who cares about Brando. His work in this film (in which he mocks his most famous screen role) is just as funny on the small screen as it was in theaters.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Marlon Brando's performance as Don Corleone in The Godfather is one of the most memorable in cinema history, and the actor's bravely pays homage to the part in writer-director Andrew Bergman's screwball comedy The Freshman. Brando runs away with the movie, and deservedly so: he delivers an astonishing, perfectly controlled comic performance. Bergman commandingly sends up Corleone and stages a number of other satiric moments, but despite being goofy and sloppy at times, the movie never becomes a spoof. The affable performances of Brando, Matthew Broderick, Paul Benedict and Bruno Kirby (who appeared in The Godfather Part II) sustain The Freshman's genial air. Gangster movies were a favorite revisionist target of such mid-1980s films as Prizzi's Honor and Married to the Mob; the closest match-up to Brando's work in the The Freshman, however, might be Robert De Niro's self-referential performance in 1999's Analyze This.
