The film's sharp humor targets cinephile in-jokes and goofy tangents.
The delayed Father's Day release disappoints with excessively dark visuals plagued by poor shadow detail and frequent crush.
The film's use of excellent music and sound effects, which could have been highlighted more, adds to the disappointment.
Disc 2, the main DVD in standard definition, features a trailer, and deleted scenes including 'Artie and Mary' and 'The Kiss'.
The film presents itself as an Astron-6 late-night TV show, complete with deliberate Grindhouse-style flaws such as shaky footage and scratches.
