Ron Howard's humorous newspaper drama The Paper comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. English and French soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. Spanish subtitles are accessible, and the English 5.1 soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include production notes, and biographies of the cast and crew. This is an inexpensive, but pedestrian release from Universal.

This was an over-looked gem when it hits theatres, and what a shame. Howard nails the pace and beat of New York City with great flair. The characters are wonderful and it almost feels like you've been watching them on some sit-com for years. Keaton and Quaid's buddy reporters are hilarious, but it's Duvall and Close that steal the show. The film has such a fantastic pulse to it that you've got to see it to feel it.

I loved this movie when it first came out. The casting was awesome! Micheal Keaton and Marissa Tormae worked so well together. One of Ron Howard's best. I have watched it several times since I got the DVD.
