Lasse Hallstrom's quirky What's Eating Gilbert Grape comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials are limited to a theatrical trailer. This disc does a spectacular job of presenting the film, but there is little to offer other than that. The film's fans will appreciate this disc, but there may not be enough here to interest the average DVD consumer.

This movie was deep and lovable, this is one of my personal favorites!!!!!
This movie is so heartwarming. It is has Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio so you know that it will be great! This is the perfect chick flick that will even make your boyfriend cry! Everyone should watch this film!
i like johnny depp and leo dicaprio. this is the best movie i've seen of johnny and leonardo. it's very inspiring, heart-warming, funny, and also sad. i totally recommend this movie for anyone, young or old. for this movie, you will need tissues.
Beyond the fact that every American family is dysfunctional in its own way, how many times will we admit the fact. A brilliant eye opener to the society of today that we all are alike in some sort of sense. Times of laughter and depression due to the simple fact that you are actually watching your home videos when you are watching this masterpiece. Thank you for opening eyes along the way Gilbert and Arnie.
this movie is so good, it makes me want to read the book ASAP. Johnny does a great job as Gilbert ! and the rest of the cast is awesome as well.
this film was the biggest waste of my time i feel sorry for those who actually enjoyed this film. it went on forever and i just about had to resort to shooting the dvd with my sawn off shotgun just to make it stop.
Whats eating Gilbert Grape was one of the best movies I have ever seen Mr. Johnny Depp act in. I think that we have all seen this type of disfuctioanl family or even have this type of family. He is an amazing actor and with this movie touched many people. I reccomend this movie to just about everyone, it is a touching film and an amazing adventure. Dont miss out on this movie.
this was an amazing film, the last thing expected was for gilbert to strike out at arnie but it is the start of the good things to come! once again depp has put on an astounding performance and the two boys (depp and DiCaprio) work together in perfect harmony!
Touching and real.
This movie had such a great story line behind it. It was funny & sad. The acting was great with every character. Makes you think more about your life. Would recommend everyone to see this movie. It was a great movie overall!
"What's eating Gilbert Grape" is one of my absolute favorite movies. It's honest and very entertaining. I couldn't disagree more with the other reviewer "Cledis the homo", it was NOT a waste of time.Maybe Cledis should stop feeling sorry for people who like it and pay attention to his spelling. P.S. Forest Gump (note the "G") sucks!!!
best movie ever i loved it. it made me cry laugh and mad it reminded me of peeps i know
This movie made me understand more about the troubles and joys of having a handicapped brother or obease mother, it also points out how frustrating everyday family life is.
Yo if you havnt seen this movie yet you better. It had all a good movie needs. A retarted kid, a fat chick, and a cool guy thats trying to make a living. Wow what a combo. You can almost feel what the movie is about. This movie really inspired me.
Johnny Depp is a awesome actor (super hot I must add). What's Eating Gilbert Grape is a movie that will make you laugh and make you cry. It is the most moving movie I have ever seen! If you haven't seen it yet SEE IT!!!!
This movie is sad, a little bit romantic, but very depressing. Johnny Depp did wonderfl as Gilbert and Leonardo DiCaprio did good as Arnie.It is really touching. If you are sad, I wouldn't reccomend watching it. It's a tear-jerker! Simply Depptastic!!!!
I really enjoyed this movie-not your typical movie, but it is excellent.
Words I can use to describe about What's Eating Gilbert Grape won't be good enough. Johnny Depp, Juliette Lewis, John C. Reilly, Darlene Cates, the incredible Leonardo DiCaprio, and the rest of the cast took this film into something so magnificent that it is so hard to think What's Eating Gilbert Grape is less than a perfect film. Much of the credit is deserved by Lasse Hallstrom. So amazing as it sounds, there is only one Academy Award nomination for this film: which goes to Leonardo DiCaprio who richly deserved it. I don't know what the Academy Award committee is looking for in a film, but they missed this one by a mile. Most deserved nominations are for Johnny Depp, Juliette Lewis, Darlene Cates, John C. Reilly, Lasse Hallstrom, and best picture. I know Schindler's List is far superior to this film, but What's Eating Gilbert Grape is a very remarkably heartwarming spectacular film.
