Warner Bros.' DVD edition of Miss Congeniality seems to have passed through the process to release without receiving much attention, though it does come with a pair of commentary tracks and a pair of featurettes as extras. The video is a clean anamorphic transfer that maintains the 1.85:1 aspect ratio of the original. The source print is free of dust speckles and scratches. The transfer, however, is lacking in contrast, and seems to have problems with levels from time to time -- some night scenes turn to mush, and some outdoor day scenes come close to washing out. Colors appear accurate, though subdued, but the overall image seems slightly soft. Blacks are reasonably solid, compression artifacts are minimal, and there appears to be no stairstepping from digital enhancement. The Dolby 5.1 is adequate to the task at hand, with good separation and good use of the surround channels for atmospheric and ambient effect. The bass channel is good, with solid, clean lows. Dialogue is very clear throughout, and never overwhelmed by other soundtrack elements. The French-language soundtrack maintains the audio quality, and has a good voice cast, but somewhat sloppy dubbing. The first commentary track features Sandra Bullock and screenwriter Marc Lawrence, while the second has director Donald Petrie soloing. The Bullock/Lawrence commentary has a jokey, chatty, sometimes surreal air to it, and is effectively wall to wall -- good for a certain amount of entertainment, though it does sometimes get irritating. Petrie's commentary, on the other hand, is a plodder -- long gaps, little information (delivered slowly at that), and not much of interest. The two featurettes seem like one longer piece simply cut in half. Each one includes some background information on the film, a handful of bloopers, and concludes with deleted scenes. The sound quality is fine on both, but the image quality is mediocre. Cast and crew information and the theatrical trailer cap off the special features.
