The Big Easy [DVD] [1987]

Jim McBride's New Orleans set sexy comedy/mystery The Big Easy comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The closed-0captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a theatrical trailer. This is a marginal disc from Trimark that could have better sound, but the widescreen presentation is welcome. There is little here for the average DVD consumer, but this will probably be as good as it gets for this film on home video.

The Big Easy
A film that captures the steamy, colorful essence of New Orleans, this crime thriller tells the romantic story of a classy detective whose investigation of a gangland murder lands him in trouble with the city's new District Attorney, a woman with a rigid penchant for following the letter of the law. Despite their differences, the two manage to work together and eventually fall in love. Unfortunately all of this leads them to have to fight for their lives when their investigation into the case and the corruption surrounding it gets them bumped up to the top of a hit man's list. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
