That Thing You Do! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Get ready for disappointment. That Thing You Do! makes its Blu-ray debut with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that appears to be a bad recycling of a now-ancient DVD-era master, sourced from what looks like a thrice-duped internegative. Shot on 35mm with spherical lenses—which almost always create a slightly less resolved image than anamorphic glass—you might reasonably expect the film to look a little soft, but sometimes the picture here is outright blurry, with no discernible fine detail whatsoever. Worse, from the first frames the image looks rough, with specks on the print and busy patches of noise intensifying the already heavy grain structure, making highlights—which can sometime appear a little overexposed—look seriously blotchy. It's distracting, especially in closeups of the actors' faces, and I can't imagine how Fox would think it's acceptable to re-release the film looking like this. Color fares better, but only marginally; black levels often crush shadow detail in darker scenes, and cinematographer Tak Fujimoto's tones can seem either wimpy or oversaturated, with occasionally wonky skin tones. I don't know what happened here, entirely, but I'm sure That Thing You Do! can and should look better. I'm probably being a bit generous with the 2.5/5 score.


That Thing You Do! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The shoddy picture quality is probably reason enough to pass on this disc—particularly if you already own the 2007 DVD set— but if you're still interested, you can at least rest assured that there are no similar issues with the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. This is a functional, music-focused mix that never really wows but does get all the essentials right. Most importantly, dialogue is always clear and easily understood, sitting at the top of the mix. Below this is the general ambience, which is often bled over quietly into the rear speakers, letting us hear applause and cheering from all directions, along with a few rare cross-channel effects. The track is at its best, though, when The Wonders let loose with "That Thing You Do," which sounds more polished—and bigger, especially the drums—as the film goes on. The disc also includes Spanish and French dubs, and English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
