Breaking in

Director: Bill Forsyth Cast: Burt Reynolds, Casey Siemaszko, Sheila Kelley

DVD (Wide Screen / Dolby 5.1 / Stereo / Mono)


Bill Forsyth's low-key comedy Breaking In contains one of Burt Reynolds' best performances. The film comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.66:1. English and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are accessible in all three of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. This MGM/UA release offers solid picture and sound quality at a reasonable list price, making it worthwhile for anyone looking outside the Hollywood mainstream for some quality entertainment.
