Lost in America may have been Albert Brooks' most popular film but many of his fans consider this 1979 feature debut to be his funniest picture. Long out of print on video, the Paramount DVD of Real Life makes plain that this biting satire is even more timely now that reality TV has moved beyond Candid Camera and the PBS American Family documentary that originally inspired Brooks to make the movie. Unfortunately, this DVD doesn't come with any extras such as an audio commentary, which is a shame considering that Brooks is so engaging in interviews. All viewers get is an anamorphic transfer of the theatrical widescreen print and a Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono audio track. Both of these live up to Real Life's original theatrical print. Though including Brooks' hilarious short films from the period would have been nice, fans of Albert Brooks and "mockumentaries" such as Best in Show will be pleased to have Real Life in their collections.
