    7 / 10
    This review is of the region 2 disk, which is unavailable in the UK at the moment.
    A nice romantic comedy about love and time travel. Yeah, you heard me - time travel.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the colors are nicely saturated. Everything (with the exception of Meg Ryan`s hair, which looks really awful) looks nice and the 1876 costumes look really authentic.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are used occasionally (the reverse bells sound is very effective).
    The menus are still with music.
    The extras include a behind the scenes look and a music video.
    Bottom line - a cute romantic comedy with a very good performance by Hugh Jackman.
