Funny Farm [DVD] [1988]

  • SKU: 3636444
  • Release Date: 05/18/1999
  • Rating: PG
Chevy Chase stars in the downhome comedy Funny Farm. Warner's work on this transfer is only a measly 1.33:1 full-frame transfer which sports all the inconsistencies associated with a pan-and-scan disc. While the colors are mostly solid and the black levels well saturated, overall the image retains a soft, hazy feel that will disappoint most fans of the film. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English and French. This is a very mediocre soundtrack that features little-to-no directional effects and a small amount of distortion in the dialogue during a few key scenes. English subtitles are also included on this disc. Alas, when it comes to extra features Funny Farm is no laughing matter -- not one supplement is available on this disc.

Synopsis


Funny Farm
Chevy Chase stars as Andy Farmer, a sportswriter who moves with his schoolteacher wife Elizabeth (Madolyn Smith) to the country in order to write a novel in relative seclusion. Of course, seclusion is the last thing the Farmers find in the small, eccentric town, where disaster awaits them at every turn. The veteran production staff features the likes of composer Elmer Bernstein, cinematographer Miroslav Ondricek, production designer Henry Bumstead, and director George Roy Hill (The Sting, The World According to Garp). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    I remember watching this film on cable in the 1980's. I have always liked it. Not the best Chevy movie by any means, but a short decent comedy. NEVER understood the car the characters drove in it. Anyone ever see a top on that thing? Like it is 80 degrees all year long right. I do not remember that this film did that well at the box office. The 2 flaws in this DVD package: 1. The film is NOT wide screen Come on DVD makers, the character in the film is the Red Bud city/area they moved to. So, we the DVD buyers are cheated out of seeing it & 2. These GLAD THEY DO NOT MAKE THEM ANYMORE card board DVD case. These things are terrible. Anyway, if you like quiet, simple story comedies you will like this film.
