This sharp comedy from director Stephen Frears has been given a snappy presentation for its release on DVD. The Snapper has been transferred to disc in letterboxed format in the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1, which has been enhanced for anamorphic playback on 16 x 9 monitors. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Surround and the dialogue is in English with no multiple-language options included (though the disc does boast closed captioning in English for the hearing impaired). As a bonus, this edition features a commentary track with director Frears, author/screenwriter Roddy Doyle, and producer Lynda Miles.

For Brian Larkin The song is by Lick the Tins and can found on the Some Kind of Wonderful soundtrack. This is a terrific movie.

I would like to know where I can get my hands on a copy of the soundtrack to this fabulous movie as I love the cover version at the very start of the movie of the Elvis track 'Can't Help Falling In Love'
