So, if you are familiar with Kevin Smith's work, you already have a pretty good idea of whether or not you are going to like this film. If you are not already familiar, there is nothing I could say that would help you to figure that out, given his unique brand of comedy and how personal and subjective the love of that comedy actually ends up being. What you need to know, in the event that you are considering purchasing this for yourself or as a gift, follows here....
First, this is a Lionsgate release. They have confirmed the Blu-ray will have a Digital code, redeemable at the vendor of your choosing, but not at Movies Anywhere, as they are still not a member of that service. (Here's hoping they fix that soon.) Second, they have opted for individual DVD and Blu-ray releases, not a 4K release. However, they have recently begun redeeming codes from Blu-rays in UHD via the Vudu service, when selecting that vendor upon redemption. I will update this review as soon as I know if this film is included in that ever-expanding list of UHD redemptions. (As of the date of this review, Lionsgate is alone in the industry giving UHD redemptions for Blu-ray purchases, and congratulations to them for taking the lead and doing that for their customers. It is actually one of the nicest things I've seen a studio do for customers, in quite a long while, in contrast to several studios that often give an HD digital redemption with a 4K disc purchase.)
As to special features, the confirmed features include the following:
Separate/Independent Interviews of Cast and Crew, conducted by Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes
Something called a "Hair Reel" (which, given the inclusion of Jason and his famous hair in this film, will most likely involve said hair)
Additionally, the release will have optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles for the film itself, as has become pretty standard in the industry.
When it comes to additional features, the first pressing has been labeled as having a slipcover, with what I can only call the best artwork I've seen this year.
Now the bad news.... Kevin did confirm that Lionsgate did not opt for a commentary on this feature. Given that the interviews do act, in their own way, as a form of commentary, I can partly understand that decision. However, for those of us who never tire of listening to Kevin talk, no matter the content, whether we agree or disagree, whether it is brilliant or drivel, it is a disappointment. He has said he will upload a commentary track, for people to listen to his musings via his podcast, but, sadly, that isn't quite the same as a disc-commentary, which plays while watching the film.
Our family is greatly looking forward to this release and, if you are a fan, this will be one worth owning and watching again and again. Good luck finding the film for you. This one pushes all of my nostalgia buttons, while entertaining me in its own right, and it was wonderful to see Ben Affleck and Kevin Smith back together again, after so many years of pointless estrangement.
