Synopsis: Can you say "d-y-s-f-u-n-c-t-i-o-n-a-l"? I knew you could! This is the story of two brothers. Brothers as a rule do not always get along. I can attest to this fact however, the sibling rivalry exhibited here could use some medicated resolution. Jjacks (Keanu Reeves) and his brother (Vincent D'onofrio) have never gotten along. Due largely to their highly competitive natures & a mother who really should have thought twice about mothering puppies much less children! Anyway, the boys grow up in different places & only come together on the day of D'onofrio's shotgun wedding to "Freddie"(Cameron Diaz) In what has to be one of the most depressing ceremonies on record, the two marry & immediately Freddie stars hitting on Jjacks. What ensues goes from absurd to laughable to bizarre all in 99 minutes! Feeling Minnesota you have to see it to believe it!

Audio: There is a 5.1 digital platform used that puts your home theater to a low to moderate workout. There is sufficient on screen mayhem to create the atmosphere needed to surround you with the insanity that is Feeling Minnesota. There were really no points where the audio really floored me. It's best points were with music & lowest points were when the feature was dialogue driven. Which was really next to never.

Video: The disc has both Full screen & Widescreen formats for the viewer. I didn't find the film to be anywhere near new line's other features. The images & colors were true to form however; I just wasn't all that impressed with the presentation. There were no imperfections noted.

Extras: The only extra included on the disc are the cast & crew bios & the trailer for Feeling Minnesota.

Overall: This is a really stupid movie. It struggles to make a point, and the viewer is left thinking what would that point be! I know I haven't gotten the point yet. Hopefully, I never will.
