Billy Madison

 (1995)

Billy Madison Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

He's heir to the Madison Hotel millions, but the only subjects Billy has studied lately are babes and booze. When Brian Madison informs his goofball son that he plans to turn over his Fortune 500 company to a scheming vice president, Billy makes the bet of his life: He's going back to school--grades 1 through 12--in 24 weeks! Can this bona fide blockhead win his father's respect, the family fortune and the love of his beautiful teacher?

For more about Billy Madison and the Billy Madison Blu-ray release, see Billy Madison Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Adam Sandler, Darren McGavin, Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, Bradley Whitford, Josh Mostel, Norm MacDonald
Director: Tamra Davis

Billy Madison Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

While I don't have the HD DVD for comparison, one can reasonably assume that this is the same hi-def transfer previously released by Universal, and it's typical of Uni's repurposed Blu-rays, which is to say that it's serviceable but undistinguished. Black levels are adequate, and detail is generally good, although softness is evident in the fine detail of many wide shots. Whether this is a product of the original photography or a result of the transfer and mastering process was impossible to tell. I did not see any telltale signs of filtering or noise reduction to suggest that detail had been eliminated to facilitate fitting the film onto a BD-25.

Occasional shots betray the instability associated with gate weave, which is not unusual with a film made before digital intermediates became standard. The artifact is fleeting and occasional; most viewers probably won't notice it.

Where the Blu-ray excels is in its reproduction of the film's color palette. Davis took full advantage of the artificiality of Billy's world so that wherever possible the frame is filled with strong colors. At times, the cheerful brightness makes the film look like a television show (and, indeed, DP Victor Hammer would go on to give a similar look to some interesting TV series, including Veronica Mars and Wonderfalls). But the approach pays off in elaborate sequences like the fantasy parties that Billy throws for himself every time he passes another grade, complete with clowns, fair rides and jet skis in the Madison estate's water fountains. The Blu-ray reproduces all these hues nicely, without oversaturation or bleeding.


Billy Madison Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The DTS lossless mix gets the job done but doesn't offer much in the way of surround ambiance or rear channel support. Dialogue is clear and firmly anchored to the center. Randy Edelman's utilitarian score is well represented, but the real standout is the oddball selection of songs by Culture Club, the Cars, the Jackson 5, Electric Light Orchestra, Styx and, of course, Sandler himself. Sandler's own musical tastes have often informed his films, and Billy Madison is as much an example as The Wedding Singer. Having the songs come through with impact is essential to the track.
