Hanging Up [DVD] [2000]

Diane Keaton's comedy/drama about three sisters comes to DVD with two different images. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is preferable to the standard full-frame 1.33:1 picture. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. The bountiful supplemental materials include a deleted sequence, a gag reel, an isolated musical score, talent files, production notes, theatrical trailers, and a "making of" documentary that appeared originally on HBO. Fans of Nora Ephron's work will certainly want to see this disc.

Hanging Up
Diane Keaton directed and starred in this comedy/drama about a family brought together by potential tragedy. In her mid-40s, Eve (Meg Ryan) minds her house, runs a business organizing parties and events for others, and looks after her father (Walter Matthau), an alcoholic former writer who has grown argumentative and increasingly difficult to handle. Eve's sisters -- Georgia (Keaton), who is a few years older and the editor of a successful fashion magazine, and Maddy (Lisa Kudrow), a few years younger and a working actress with a spot on a soap opera -- have also had to deal with Dad, but only by long distance when he makes one of his frequent telephone calls. Dad now doesn't have long to live, and the siblings must pull together and make peace with their father and each other. Sisters Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron adapted the screenplay from Delia's novel; the supporting cast includes Adam Arkin, Cloris Leachman, and Mary Steenburgen. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I thought that Hanging Up should have been funnier, but it dragged on. In fact I thought I missed some vital information , but I think I was looking for too much.
