Robert Zemeckis' charmingly nostalgic comedy I Wanna Hold Your Hand debuts on DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by Zemeckis and his long-time writing partner Bob Gale. They share many warm recollections of making the film. A still photo gallery rounds out this fine release from Universal.
Feature commentary with writer/director Robert Zemeckis and writer Bob Gale
Part of the charm of this movie is precisely that it is so overlooked. Wasn't a hit but every bit as deserving as Airplane or Graffiti or any other 70's comedy. The Two Bobs (Zemeckis and Gale) hit it out of the park on their debut. Great cast.
I Wanna Hold Your Hand is a very well written, directed and acted film. If you're a Beatles fan, you'll especially enjoy the movie's plot and soundtrack. All the actors were great but Eddie Deezen as Ringo Klaus is the one to watch. He steals every scene he's in and makes a great team with Wendie Jo Sperber who plays Rosie. I highly recommend this to all!!
