As I’ve said before, I still don’t get, it but there it is...
I still don’t get why people like The Best Man so much. I swear I don’t even remember a single bloody thing about that film. And I’ve had absolutely no desire to even watch the film again, since it first came out. But somehow people really love it to death.
But then there are films I love that no one likes, and it all balances out.
But if you’re interested in seeing the film as good as it’s ever looked, Universal Home Entertainment announced yesterday that they will be releasing The Best Man for the first time on blu-ray DVD on November 5th.
The extras included are pretty lame. Just a theatrical trailer and some featurette: Spotlight on Location, which is most likely a short promo reel made back when the film was in production.
Since Universal is, of course, releasing the blu-ray to capitalize on the upcoming sequel, The Best Man Holiday, coming out this November, you would have thought that, at least, they would have taken advantage and added more extras, including commentaries with the director and cast, and a Looking Back documentary, but nope. Unfortunately this blu-ray release is more of a quick cash grab.
