John Patrick Shanley's quirky comedy Joe Versus the Volcano comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Stereo, while French and Spanish soundtracks have also been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. English, French, Spanish, Japanese, and Portuguese subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a trailer, a making-of featurette, and a music video. Warner Bros. has done a solid job with this film, which was the first to pair Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
