Reviled by critics, Life Or Something Like It gets a second chance on home video. The DVD has it's good points, but isn't anything out of the ordinary. On the plus side, the picture is brilliant in every respect. Presented in both the theatrical ratio of 2.35:1, and anamorphic, and a severely cropped pan and scan, the image is just what one expects from this digital format. Colors are captured perfectly, while darks are solid. Flesh tones are a particular high point and very realistic. The sound, while nothing really to complain about, also isn't overly interesting. Yes, dialogue and effects come across nicely, but the lack of any real surround material doesn't make it feel as complete. As for supplements, that is the weak link. The only thing included is a commentary track from director Stephen Herek. He is enjoyable enough to listen to, with a wide range of topical material on this scene specific track ,but even like the best commentaries, he finds himself running out of steam later in the film, leaving larger and larger gaps of dead air (fortunately the films soundtrack can still be heard in the background so there isn't complete silence). Is this a great film? Clearly not, but fans of the romantic-comedy genre will most likely enjoy the familiar trappings.
