DVD Review: Talladega Nights
Movie ••½ Picture ••• Sound ••½ Extras •••
The colors in this extended edition (offering 13 more minutes) aren't nearly as bright as I'd expect, and the soundstage is less than immersive, even at the racetrack. Cast and crew are gathered together for a mock-serious commentary that wears out its welcome real quick, but the endorsements, public-service announcements, and gag reel are good for a few laughs. You also get a wealth of deleted scenes, outtakes, and interviews with the cast (in character). [PG-13] English and French, Dolby Digital 5.1; letterboxed (2.35:1) and anamorphic widescreen; dual layer.
