The Wedding Singer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Wedding Singer may be a treasured classic to some, but the studio doesn't seem to think very highly of it. What else could explain the poor condition of Warner's flawed, ridiculously over-processed 1080p/VC-1 transfer? The film's parade of lush primaries and dazzling pastels are arguably the only high point of the Blu-ray presentation -- shadow delineation is weak, skintones are often oversaturated, and black levels are occasionally left unresolved. Worse still, detail ranges from decent to depressing. Image clarity is soft and inconsistent, crisp textures are a rarity, and objects sometimes appear squishy and indistinct. Moreover, the transfer has been slathered with an excessive application of digital noise reduction (DNR). While it may cover up erratic grain and minor print damage, it also produces waxy faces, spongy close-ups, and motion smearing. It's the sort of overwhelming issue no amount of edge enhancement or artificial sharpening could ever correct... yet it's clear the studio used these exact techniques in a futile effort to fudge the end result. Add to that the appearance of minor artifacts, faint source noise, distracting halos, crush, and even some aliasing and you have one of the more notable Blu-ray mishaps released this year.

It's worth mentioning that, in a direct comparison, the high definition presentation outclasses its standard DVD counterpart in every conceivable way. However, there's a significant difference between inherent improvements (achieved simply by tossing a pre-existing transfer onto a Blu-ray disc and reaping the fundamental rewards) and a meticulously crafted upgrade (produced with the tender care afforded to the best catalog restorations). Is a basic bump in quality enough to redeem the transfer's shortcomings? Not in my eyes. It's a good thing The Wedding Singer is available at such a low price point: average at best, mediocre at worst, this one left me dissatisfied and disappointed.


The Wedding Singer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Ah well, at least The Wedding Singer's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track is worthy of some praise. First and foremost, the film's collection of '80s classics sound fantastic. Perfectly spread throughout the soundfield, songs like Don't Stop Believing, You Spin Me Round, 99 Luftballoons, and Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me boast deep, healthy LFE support, stable high-end treble tones, and a fitting remastering of each hit's vocals. Character dialogue pales a bit in comparison, but it's nevertheless crisp, clear, and nicely prioritized in the mix. Likewise, the rear speakers tend to hibernate when the music stops, but the various wedding receptions (and other crowded scenes) offer a welcome flood of ambient effects and a convincing array of acoustics. Better still, pans are transparent and directionality is precise. A visit to a busy nightclub and several heated arguments reveal a spatial accuracy I didn't expect to find in a late '90s romantic comedy. The track certainly isn't perfect, but I can't imagine The Wedding Singer sounding any better than it does here. Just don't forget to manually select the lossless audio option -- Warner has once again decided to set the standard Dolby track as the default mix on the disc.
