Eddie Murphy and Jeff Goldblum team up for a feel good comedy in Holy Man. Jeff Goldblum is a senior executive at the Good Buy Shopping Channel named Rick. His sales have fallen into a slump when he comes along a Holy Man named G, Eddie Murphy. With his ability to reach people and make them feel good about themselves he ends up being a gold mine for selling products. Just how far will Rick go to earn a buck? This movie addresses many of the issues we all address sometime in our life. Most of all a realization of what exactly will make us happy in life! Eddie Murphy adds a great comical relief to what could have been an overwhelmingly serious movie!
The video is presented in widescreen in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The transfer is clear with vibrant colors and deep dark blacks. Disney really did a great job with the transfer not a hint of grain!
The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and will knock your socks off! Very clear and crisp and while not an action film there is a full use of all 6 channels. The packaging states special features include a Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio. Since when has this become a special feature? Dolby Digital 5.1 is the accepted standard for DVD Audio.
Extras? Once again this is a bare bone Disney title with no extra’s. The MSRP is set at 29.99. Extras, Extras, Extras we want Extras. Extras add so much to the overall experience of watching a movie. Many DVD’s are so packed with extras that you can literally spend more time with the extras then the actual movie itself. Just a suggestion if Disney wants to sell more discs they really should add to the extras content!
