Hilarity rushes to the altar in the Jennifer Lopez/Matthew McConaughey romantic comedy The Wedding Planner. Columbia has done a fine job on this disc, starting off with a very nice 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Imperfections such as digital artifacting and edge enhancement are never present during the feature. With bold black levels and very bright colors, this transfer is very pleasing to the eye. The same might be said for the ears with the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. While sound effects are not heavily used in The Wedding Planner, this track utilizes the surround feature whenever romantic songs are in the background. Clear and concise, this track should please home theater listeners. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround soundtrack in English, as well as English, French, and Spanish subtitles. The Wedding Planner could be considered a special edition of sorts, boasting a bouquet of extra features. A commentary track with director Adam Shankman and screenwriters Pamela Falk and Michael Ellis is both insightful and funny. Also included on this disc are some deleted scenes that don't add much to the proceedings, a short "making of" featurette, "The Dancer and the Cowboy" featurette, some theatrical trailers, filmographies, production notes, and web links to The Wedding Planner website. If fans of romantic comedy are in the mood for DVD love, this edition of The Wedding Planner should ignite sparks.
