Overview

Matchstick Men

Ridley Scott's con man comedy drama Matchstick Men comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by Scott and screenwriters Nicholas Griffin and Ted Griffin. The director was recorded separately from the brothers, but the two tracks are edited together well, with each commenting on the other as the film progresses. They offer much insight into the development of the script, and make it readily apparent that it was a pleasant work experience for everyone involved. An extensive making-of documentary offers addition information about the filmmaking process. This is a fine disc for what it is, but Scott's visual flair is hampered by the full-screen transfer.

One of the funniest movies I've seen since paper moon. Allison Lohman is terrific and hot. She makes being bad look good.

Oh,man. This movie was real funny, and I can't believe what happens. This was so crazy, I didn't expect the ending. It's like you got punched in the chest, its so surprising. But it is a very well written script, and exquisite filming. I can't believe how excellent this movie is. It is such a great movie!! I loved it!

I absolutely loved this movie. From Nicholas Cage's hilariously quarky character to the surprize ending, it was terrific. Very well scripted and left you with a smile. The only reason that I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it did drag a bit in places.
