1.0 out of 5 stars Warner Bros. ought to be ashamed of themselves!, January 27, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Caddyshack (DVD)
Of all the great comedy and spoof films of the early 1980's "Caddyshack" is beyond a doubt one of the more memorable flicks of the period that will probably never die with time. I would give this movie 5, or even 6 stars if I could, but I can't do it with the DVD version. This film is so poorly presented that it's a disgrace this was released in its present condition. The lettering and colours are washed out, the film is littered with scratches, specks of dirt and blotches that haven't been cleaned up, and it lacks 5.1 Dolby Digital. I agree with those who say the VHS version is superior because it is. Warner needs to clean up the film presentation, enhance the sound and release it in anamorphic/letterbox format in order to do this real justice. I hope they do this year on its 20th anniversary.

This review is more than 10 years old, so its complaints about this particular DVD version may not apply to recent DVD and Blu-ray releases of Caddyshack. The latest discs celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic movie, which has -- as hoped -- finally been cleaned up and remastered.

I agree with you totally. The new blu-ray, though, looks fantastic. That is what people should buy now :)

Amazon should really separate the Blu Ray reviews from the DVD reviews, and this is a perfect example why. A sloppy DVD transfer might deserve 1 star, and a careful Blu Ray transfer of the same movie deserves 5.... Of course Caddyshack is a 6 star move! :-P
