Jonathan Lynn's comedy Trial and Error comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer, and filmographies of the cast and crew. This is a solid release from New Line Home Entertainment.

When I rented this flick as a young lad I was so happy to see that Michael Richards was in this movie because he was Kramer on Seinfeld and I loved him. Little did I know this so called 'comedy' was not funny at all! There were no jokes whatsoever, nothing said was funny at all. The only reason why this gets 2 stars instead of 1 is because the story and plot were pretty darn good.
