Overview

The Big Easy

Jim McBride's New Orleans set sexy comedy/mystery The Big Easy comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The closed-0captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a theatrical trailer. This is a marginal disc from Trimark that could have better sound, but the widescreen presentation is welcome. There is little here for the average DVD consumer, but this will probably be as good as it gets for this film on home video.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time.  It can be very dark,but Dennis Quaid is exceptional in it.
