The Gingerbread Man DVD is a pleasant surprise. The DVD features an excellent picture and an atmospheric 5.1 soundtrack that really highlights Mark Isham's excellent score.
As far as special features, the DVD offers a commentary track by Robert Altman, cast bios and the film's trailer. Altman's commentary borders on the routine (it's hard to top The Player), but even a routine Altman commentary is interesting.
