Labor Pains Blu-ray Review

Disc Size: 18.6 GB
Film Size: 17.3 GB
Film Rating: PG-13
Region: A

Video
Labor Pains comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p AVC/MPEG-4 video presentation. The film actually looks quite great, and definitely much sharper than I expected. Colors were rich and vibrant, and detail was very strong as well. I didn't notice any compression issues or tampering (DNR & EE). First Look has provided a top notch presentation for Labor Pains. 8.5/10.

Audio
A 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio track is included, and is about as good as one could expect. The film's surround use is minimal, except for a bit of music or effects here and there. Dialogue being the most important part of the film sounds clear as can be, and I never encountered any volume issues. 7/10.

Extras
Production Stills
Making Of Featurette
Cast Interviews

Blu-news Summary
Labor Pains is quite the mediocre comedy that feels like it was made for TV, actually it did. If you happen to enjoy made for TV productions then Labor Pains may possibly be your cup of tea, as the characters featured are actually quite funny at times. It's great to see Lindsay Lohan back on the screen, and her performance was actually much better than I had anticipated. That being said, the film's whole premise is cheesy and quite stupid overall, but it's not the worst.

The Blu-ray release is about as good as it gets, with top notch video and fitting audio. Extras are minimal, but hey it wasn't a major theatrical production. Labor Pains on Blu-ray is 'A Possible Rental.'
