Jonathan Lynn directs Eddie Murphy in the political satire The Distinguished Gentleman, which comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer. This is a decent release from Disney/Buena Vista that delivers the film, but little else.
