Cons out of the way, the movie actually does have its highlights. Vaughn provides 99% of the film's laughs with another charismatic performance (why do crap like PSYCHO and DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE? Stick to what works...) and the cameos were all well done. Specific kudos go out to Sam Rockwell (CHARLIE'S ANGELS) who plays a gay concierge at a SoHo hotel and Dustin Diamond (SAVED BY THE BELL's Screech) who allows himself to be the butt of the film's funniest scene. The photography by Chris Doyle was super sharp and gave the film a real crisp look.
The audio commentary by Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn is also presented with a neat little "Telestrator" animation that basically is like the football games you watch on TV where John Madden draws on the screen with a yellow marker. As the boys are talking about something, they can circle it, highlight it, etc.. Pretty cool feature and something I had never seen before. The scene edit workshop is basically a feature that allows you to reedit a scene from the movie. Apparently I won't be winning any awards soon because I had a hard time working the controls. I had fun doing it and it was interesting to see the four different camera angles for one scene but beyond that, I hoped for more.
There are 3 behind-the-scenes documentaries about the making of the film. One basically talks about how they went about getting the music together for the film. The other took a look at getting the project going and the third looked at the actual filming process. I enjoyed all of them (the music one wasn't all that interesting) but it was fun to see how everyone on the set seemed to be really good friends and enjoyed working on the film. The DVD-ROM features an "Interactive Screenplay Index" which is pretty cool but I'm not sure exactly what you'd do with it. It basically allows you to read the entire script by scene on page then click on that portion to watch that filmed scene in the movie. Interesting and technically pretty cool, but I don't know how often you'd sit around doing this unless you're a MADE fanatic (although I think that's who they made this disc for).
The outtakes are just about the funniest thing you can see. I'm just a big fan of Vaughn's humor and it's a blast to see how he cracks Favreau up as well. They included so many of them on this disc that it's a wonder they actually got this film made (no pun intended). The deleted scenes don't offer up too much but they're interesting to watch as well. There's also the addition of the trailers for the film which are what they are and finally, there's the standard cast/crew information and production notes to round out the features on this disc.
