Read Angus Wolfe Murray's film review of Get Over It

The picture quality is superb and the sound so sensual that you have to play Sisqo's end titles dance number more than twice to stay in the moment. Why leave? It feels too good.

The extras are oddly flat for such an upbeat movie. Having said that, the Trailer can't be faulted. Who's into trailers, though?

Music Video: as sexy as a designer lager commercial, but nothing to do with the film. Too slick by miles, expensively made, intriguingly watchable, musically unadventurous. If you want a word for it - chic pap.

Making Of Featurette: a bit of a mess. No direction. Actors say a few words. Predictable stuff. It's interesting that Ben Foster stays in character. Tommy O'Haver, the director, looks like a young Wall St broker, who hasn't shaved for a couple of days. He talks of being a fifth grader in Indiana and seeing his first Shakespeare play and being blown away that an old English guy could write something that still connects with teenagers in the late 20th century. Pause for emphasis. No reaction.

Outtakes: these are all Martin Short scenes and he looks as if he's improvising because the actors around him, particularly the young girls, tend to break up. He's loving it. Best thing in the Extras package. Encouraged to go over the top, Short leaps. He's hilarious and definitely out of control.

Deleted Scenes With Commentary: forget the commentary. Nothing wrong with the scenes. Why get rid of them?
