Joel and Ethan Coen's screwball comedy Intolerable Cruelty, the first film they have ever made that did not originate with them, comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and does a fabulous job of capturing the film's bright color scheme. English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, and a second English soundtrack is accessible in DTS 5.1. French and Spanish subtitles are accessible, and English captions are optional. Supplemental materials include a humorous blooper reel personally approved by Joel Coen, a ten minute making-of featurette containing interview clips with the brothers as well as stars George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and a featurette concerning the work that went into the film's excellent costume design. This is a solid release from Universal.
