Other features

This Special Edition features deleted scenes, director's commentary (but no subtitles, which is maddening -- all director's commentary discs should provide subtitles so you can follow the dialogue at the same time), production notes and a cast and crew bios section. It's widescreen (but not too wide -- 1.85:1) and features Dolby sound. Director-writer Veloz's commentary is less than scintillating; commentary from star Stiller and subject Stahl would have been more interesting, but c'est la vie.
