3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE! The UK Region 2 disc is inferior to the US R1 DVD!, 26 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Kingpin [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
Before I start the review I MUST point out that the British Region 2 DVD is inferior to the US Region 1 DVD. This is one of Entertainment In Video's early DVD releases and it shows.
For a start, it is in the WRONG picture ratio. On the back, it is listed as "Widescreen 16:9 Anamorphic" and plays in a 1.85:1 ratio. The ORIGINAL cinema ratio and Region 1 DVD picture ratio IS at 2.35:1, so I don't how EIV came up with the other ratio. It means if you watch the UK disc you're missing some of the original image on either sides (a similar mistake with EIV's release of Gosford Park). Also, the UK R2 disc doesn't carry the Audio commentary provided by the Farrelly brothers or the additional scenes (seen in the US trailer) from the Director's Cut. Finally, the sound is in basic Dolby Pro Logic but the R1 version is in full 5.1 sound.
I found the film itself funny and defintely for fans of Dumb and Dumber, Basketball (starring the South Park creators) and There's Something About Mary. It's not for everyone, though.
I would personally recommend buying the Region 1 version for the reasons stated above and ONLY watch it with a LOT of friends!
