The restored picture looks great. All three leading ladies glow. Rich colors. No artifacts or pixilation. The picture was cleaned up very nicely.
I'm not a Country music fan, but you can't help but like Dolly Parton. Her Oscar nominated song "9 to 5" is a classic. It still sounds great 25 years later. The soundtrack on this DVD make it so. Full, rich tones. Nice balance between the ranges.
No Easter Eggs Found on Disc.
The commentary track is hit and miss. While there is a lot of behind the scenes info on the making of the film, there is also a lot of chatter that is of little interest to folks who were not on the set. I wonder if the DVD producers ever hire commentary track directors?!
There are also 10 deleted scenes and a gag reel. Some of the extras scenes are longer versions of existing scenes. There are a couple of extra scenes that show just how evil Dabney Coleman's character was. This could have easily been a much darker comedy ALA "Harold and Maude."
It is nice to see yet another old and significant film get the royal DVD treatment. A must have.
