Universal's exquisitely-presented DVD of Steven Soderbergh's box-office and critical hit Erin Brockovich is sure to delight fans of the film, while drawing new ones in equal measure. The picture and audio transfers are fairly run of the mill, presenting the film in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound. The real meat and potatoes of this DVD, however, are the extras. Universal includes its usual "Spotlight on Location" documentary, which highlights the making of the film and includes interviews with the cast and crew. There is also a three-minute segment on the real Erin Brockovich, which details her experiences battling the lawyers of Pacific Gas and Electric. A true standout is the 30-minute reel of deleted scenes. Available with or without commentary from Soderbergh, these scenes add a great deal of texture to the movie, and leave the viewer wondering why they were cut at all. Erin Brockovich was one of the most acclaimed films of 2000, and this DVD does it justice.
