The Superbit titles utilize a special high bit rate digital encoding process which optimizes video quality while offering a choice of both DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. These titles have been produced by a team of Sony Pictures Digital Studios video, sound and mastering engineers and comes housed in a special package complete with a 4 page booklet that contains technical information on the Superbit process. By reallocating space on the disc normally used for value-added content, Superbit DVDs can be encoded at double their normal bit rate while maintaining full compatibility with the DVD video format.

This movie was, in two words, entirely unique.
They're promoting it as a 'romantic comedy' -- because there's no category called 'psychotic affair with undertones of love and violent outbursts'.
Much like Magnolia (the director's previous film), this is unlike any film you've ever seen.
Adam Sandler does an excellent job of playing an unremarkable plunger salesman -- Barry Egan. There is nothing special about this guy. He has the odd phobia, and is a little paranoid and superstitious, but is generally an all-around nice guy... if a little temperamental. An average American.
He is also painfully lonely; so much so, in fact, that one day he calls a 1-800 sex line just so he can talk to someone...
The soundtrack & audio in the film are integral to the experience of it, which is completely unnerving.
It definitely arouses feelings in the audience -- mostly of unease, and awkwardness... and I laughed many times because of the absurdity of the situations -- all of which were completely intentional on the director's part (Paul Thomas Anderson).
Amazing, unique film.
It is NOT what you're expecting... no matter what.Read full review

Hard to follow.
Slightly disappointed with storyline. A bit boring. Hard to follow. Love Adam Sandler no matter what and am true blue fan but this was a tough one for us. We support him in all of his projects but this was hard to follow

Adam Sandler emerges from his swamp of dumb movies!
Finally!! Adam Sandler does a movie that means something! Punch Drunk Love proves that Adam Sandler can act, who knew? The acting will hook you in. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Emily Watson join forces again (Red Dragon) to bring us one of the strangest love stories of our time. Adam Sndler plays a socially akward person with fits of rage due to having 7 sisters, then he meets Emily Watson and falls in love. While all of this is going on Sandler has to battle a bunch of crazed lunatics from a Phone Sex line that Sandler gets ripped off by. I will disclose no more details but I will say that the story is great and the acting is super! This movie is funny on top of being a serious drama. The real treat is the cinematography. This movie is a breath of fresh air to Adam Sandler and to movies in general. I highly reccomend this film to anyone.Read full review

Serious - But Bad!
Punch Drunk Love" starring Adam Sandler, newly
releasesd on DVD in a two-disc set with a second disc of useless extras.
Sandler gives a serious performance as a man tormented by all sorts of
issues: his seven bossy sisters, his own self-loathing, and a phone sex company
that harasses him and tries to extort money from him after he has a
conversation with a young lady on a lonely night. He stumbles into love
with one of his sisters friends, and he finds new strength from his
relationship with her. There are some great performances from supporting
cast member Philip Seymour Hoffman, as the sleazy owner of the mattress/phone sex company. The
movie moves along at a leisurely pace, and does drag in certain areas,
even though the movie is only 94 minutes. Director Paul Thomas Anderson gives the film
an arty look that helps support a rather flimsy script. Not a great
film, but a film reaching for greatness and falling short. Worth
seeing.Read full review
