New Line produces some of the best discs available. The picture quality, for starters, is outstanding. It is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is anamorphic. There are a few moments of aliasing, but they are kept to a minimum. The sound, while not nearly as impressive, is still quite good. This disc has both a Dolby Digital 5.1 and 4.0 surround track. The soundtrack is basically dialogue-driven, so one would not expect to see a wide use of the surrounds. What does come into effect is the subwoofer, due to all the bass from the hip-hop soundtrack. The disc has the usual trailer and filmographies of the cast and crew. It also has two audio commentary tracks, one from the director, producer, composer, and star Giovanni Ribisi, and the other, in the way of an isolated music track, from the composer, a woman named the Angel. Both tracks have some great information about making this film and how the elements came together. The track with the Angel is unconventional; it is presented with her words layered at times on top of other sentences. Next there are four deleted scenes and an alternate ending. In addition, this disc has a few DVD-ROM features. The disc is rounded off by additional trailers that are hidden in the filmography section. These are for two other New Line films, Friday and Love Jones.
