"THE COMEBACKS" has been released by FOX on dvd in an "UNRATED" version. Dave Koechner, typically a side-kick in bigger comedies, stars as a coach with a bunch of misfits, satirizing virtually every sports film ever made, including the worst ones, by typically making fun of the "inspiration" themes within them. However, the biggest drawback to the film lies in its never attempting to offer any sense of reality, so it's just one extreme oddity or sketch after another. There are actually a few decent laughs here, so it's like "CITIZEN KANE" compared to "EPIC MOVIE," but it's just not consistently funny.
FOX has provided a 2.35:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement. Colors are solid, although there are some artifacts(at least on the screener we reviewed) and blacks and grays aren't as deep as they are on typically superior FOX transfers. There is minor grain, but never too intrusive.
FOX has provided a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. For a comedy mix, there are a surprising amount of discrete and surround effects. It's not an aggressive mix, but there are a good amount of creative effects.
FOX has provided plenty of extras, including: a commentary(so-so)featurettes, a deleted scene and more.
