It's no fortunate accident that fans of Serendipity will enjoy this bonus-packed DVD. The film is presented in anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1 format (all the better to catch the numerous close encounters) with a Dolby Digital 5.1 English or French soundtrack and Spanish subtitles. Sneak previews of the Serendipity soundtrack, Bounce, About Adam, and Bridget Jones's Diary get their commercial play on this disc. The bonus materials are led by ten deleted scenes that can be viewed with or without the director's commentary. A number of enjoyable cuts are found here, including a first kiss between John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale early in the film. A still gallery and story board comparison (the golf scene with Beckinsale and Molly Shannon) give a unique on-the-set perspective. Also included is the theatrical trailer, feature commentary track with director Peter Chelsom,and a Starz/Encore featurette that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the film along with cast and crew interviews. Most interesting is drector Peter Chelsom's on-set diary. The detailed entries make interesting reading and share choice tidbits of information (such as Central Park was plagued with the West Nile Virus just as they were to begin shooting). The only thing missing from this package is a bloopers and outtakes reel. Snippets are shown here and there, but with the comedic talents of Cusack, Shannon, Jeremy Piven, and Eugene Levy, there's sure to be countless laughs left out. Ignoring that unfortunate omission, Serendipity's DVD should leave fans of this fateful romantic comedy with a smile.
