  • Rating: R
Albert Brooks' hysterical comedy about yuppie life, Lost in America, comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer, as well as cast and crew profiles. This is a basic disc from Warner Bros., but it is great to have such a funny film available in a widescreen transfer for such a reasonable price.

    Lost in America
    Bored with their cushy suburban existence, yuppie David (Albert Brooks) talks his wife Linda (Julie Hagerty) into selling everything they own and hitting the road to "see America." As a starting-over gesture, David and Linda are romantically remarried in Las Vegas -- which, ironically, proves to be the beginning of the end of their idyll. In short order, Linda loses their life's savings, the couple nearly self-destructs at Hoover Dam, they take blue-collar jobs in a go-nowhere Arizona town, and....Well, if you know your Albert Brooks, be prepared for a steady stream of manic social satire. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      It's about time Albert Brooks entered The Criterion Collection. Excellent film. Great interview with Brooks and Robert Weide. Highly recommended.
