The movie itself was, in my opinion, one of the best. Funny, entertaining, and I loved the cat. But even if you don't love cats, the story is still great with good-humoured pokes at authority-figures, but done nicely! The hero, an 'ordinary' guy, and his friend and girl-friend, all come through to the happy ending, after some considerable fun along the way. If you liked 'ET' chances are you'd like this.
The disc itself (region 0) had widescreen on one side and letterbox on the other, some reviewers mention difficulty in playing, but my copy of the disc played faultlessly on my laptop and on my (non-digital) TV, both sides.
A disc to be savoured and re-played - I've already watched it several times. For me, an ideal escapist tonic.
