My Giant
1998 (1998) - Warner Bros.

review by Todd Doogan, special to The Digital Bits

Enhanced for 16x9 TVs

Film Rating: B+
For all the bad things that can be said about Billy Crystal's movie career of late, My Giant -- on the small screen at least, is an enjoyable character study. And it's pretty fun too.

Disc Ratings (Video/Audio/Extras): B+/B+/C
The disc looks and sounds pretty standard. No real stand-out elements to be found in either area. Special features are pretty nonexistent, unless you call 5 trailers (including the My Giant trailer) special.

Overall Rating: B-
It's a movie I'm glad I gave a second chance on video. The self-effacing that Steven Seagal does in the movie is more than worth getting this flick on DVD.

Specs and Features

104 mins, PG, letterboxed widescreen (1.85:1), 16x9 enhanced, full frame (1.33:1), dual-sided, single-layered, production notes, Snapper case, trailers for My Giant, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Beetlejuice, Father's Day, Vegas Vacation and Mister Roberts, film-themed menu screens, scene access (34 chapters), languages: English (DD 5.1), subtitles: English & French, Close Captioned

Bottom line

Funny movie, good looking DVD. I say, if you can stomach Billy Crystal this is at the very least, a rentable film.
