This review is only for the new Bluray version: Dave [Blu-ray]  [US Import
I really love this film and I have watched it many times. When I noticed it has come out on Bluray I had to get it.....
The lead actors: Sigourney Weaver...well..let's be honest, anyone who can 'win' a President, figure out how some blue skinned people tick and in particular get the better of a bunch of really nasty Aliens can do no wrong in my book! As an aside, I have to confess I am really perplexed why the Amazon 'Product details' lists many of the movie actors but misses Sigourney Weaver off!? WHY Amazon? Kevin Kline also is a great and engaging actor who is brilliant in his characters and I can't finish without adding Frank Langella again plays his character brilliantly ...fab.
As I said earlier I love the film. In my mind the acting is just 'right' for the type of movie. The plot blends a simple story, sometimes subtle and sometime obvious emotional portrayals, interspersed with some humour and romance.
On a more technical note, I couldn't seem to find out if the import Bluray was region free but I took a chance. I can report my copy, imported from the USA, pays perfectly here in the UK. Assuming this is generally true; I hope this helps any other uncertain UK viewers.
Ok it may be a 'girly' thing but I love a happy ending... break out the popcorn, chocolate and possibly tissues, hit play and I hope you enjoy. :-)
