4.0 out of 5 stars Funny Farm/Spies Like Us Review #1 Dec 31 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I came across this Blu-ray release when searching for Funny Farm. I am glad I did. The quality of footage and sound is easily superior to the DVD release. I had never seen Spies Like Us prior to this purchase, but it was most enjoyable. I would argue that the only real similarity between these Blu-ray disc space sharers is that Chevy Chase stars in both films. There is nothing similar about the type of film content other than they're comedies. That said, I don't care, but it may bother you. The reason I gave this purchase four stars though is because there are NO special features, just the films. In summary, if you do not own these films, and/or just really love one (or both) of these films, I would recommend purchasing this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor tranfer quality March 12 2011
Format:Blu-ray
The transfer (video quality) of Funny Farm is fine (not superb). The transfer of Spies like us is extremely poor, I have seen VHS look better than this. A used DVD of this movie would be a better value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Spies Like Us is the full frame version with the top and bottom chopped off. Aug. 6 2011
By American Mahout - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Update on 11/12/11: There is a comment posted to this review that explains that this Disc is actually the correct version of the movie. Please read it if this issue concerns you.

'Spies Like Us' is a great movie. I bought this version thinking that it would have a wider view than my already purchased dvd which I could only find in full frame. I just compared it to my dvd. For this blu ray, all they did was chop some off from the top and bottom to give it the widescreen look. I thought people might to like to know.

4.0 out of 5 stars First widescreen release July 13 2010
By Doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
While not classic comedies, "Funny Farm" and "Spies Like Us" have their funny moments. Both are very enjoyable Chevy Chase movies with his usual relaxed style, a combination of straight man and funny guy. He's teamed with equally funny Dan Aykroyd in the John Landis directed "Spies" which is sprinkled with some very funny cameos. The very good news about this new BD release is that both movies are presented in widescreen for the first time on home video.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great movie ruined in post production May 13 2014
By Kevin Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The DVD version of this movie has a 4:3 aspect ratio and the colors are great. They did not inflict the "Hollywood Look" upon us. You can look for what this trend is by searching for "teal and orange hollywood please stop the madness."

The Blu-Ray version is 16:9 and 1080p but it is cropped from 4:3 and is slathered with the "Hollywood Look".

Whoever produced this should be ashamed of themselves. Whoever told them to do the above to this movie should be fired.

I am tempted to ask to return this video as it is painful for me to watch what they did to such a fun movie.

Edit:
When MGM did this with the James Bond series it resulted in a class action lawsuit and they lost.

Search for "MGM faces class action lawsuit over misleading aspect ratios on James Bond DVDs" and you will find the lawsuit. I'm not saying that Warner Home Video should be subject to litigation however precedence looks like it may have been set.

1.0 out of 5 stars No audio on either movie Aug. 27 2012
By M. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Like another reviewer, I have purchased two copies of this blu ray, one new and one used. Both have the same problem - no audio. I had to turn it all the way up to hear it faintly. It's definitely the way these discs were manufactured. I don't have this problem with any other disc. I would avoid this release until they put out another copy with the bugs fixed.
5.0 out of 5 stars can't go wrong with this pack March 7 2014
By William A. Eaken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
On time and honestly you can't go wrong with Chevy.

Spies Like us is a great movie. Chevy and Dan are bumbling Government Agents who become decoy spies. They think they are real though. Bob Hope makes an appearance as does Terry Gullium from Monty Python.

Funny Farm has Chevy moving from the city to the country with his wife. As he try's to become an author. Way to funny.
