YesLanguage and sound
English: Dolby Digital 2.0 SurroundOther features
A relatively frill-free disc; your menu is a chapter guide, and there are no subtitles. On the plus side, the film is presented in a nice crisp widescreen; on the minus side, this disc does not include the film's original trailer, which was in and of itself a little precious comic jewel. The sound is Dolby Digital.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie features characters taking advantage of one another. It hints at the fact that the scam victims' money was ill-gotten, and therefore they deserve to be fleeced. No one in this film is particularly moral. If the two scammers have a fatal flaw, it's their overconfidence rather than their immorality. Steve Martin's turn as a developmentally challenged, and later, physically challenged, man plays mental and physical deficiencies for laughs.
