In & Out
Paramount / 1997 / 90 Mins / Rated PG


MOVIE
Howard Brackett (Kevin Kline) is a drama school teacher in a small town who has a happy life and is engaged to be married. 

He was also the teacher of the most recent Best Actor, Academy Award winner (Matt Dillon), during his acceptance speech, which seems like a take on the Tom Hanks award speech of a few years ago, Dillon outs Howard and he didn't even know he was in! 

Now his life is turned upside down and his sexuality is threatened. Funny stuff from Frank Oz yet again.

VIDEO
Excellent. Village Roadshow can't be faulted with there picture quality of late. This is a great transfer, the color saturation is near perfection. The contrast was just right and the blacks were a deep black. The was no visible artifacts in the transfer. Wonderful.

In & Out is Framed at 1:85:1 and is 16:9 enhanced.

This is a single sided, single layer disc.

AUDIO

As usual 2 sound formats, MPEG 5.1 and DD5.1. I listened to the DD5.1 soundtrack. 

While not a huge sounding track, it does have it's moments. The .1 channel was barely used and the surrounds were mainly used for the music score.

EXTRAS
Usual VR extras. The theatrical trailer and featurette adorn this disc as well as the usual cast notes. Average. The theatrical trailer is window boxed with DD2.0 and is quite fun, while not a show stopper it still is fun.
FINAL THOUGHTS
Great movie, great disc. Well worth the purchase.
