Jerry Maguire SE--Show Me The Reviews!

I'm just curious as to what others have thought of the new SE. I watched a fair amount of it last night and must say I'm impressed, all the way from the audio mix to the packaging.
The video commentary was a bit strange to watch at first, but it was kind of cool seeing their facial responses to various parts in the movie (and the audio commentary on disc one is the EXACT same, FYI). The real sports agent guy was kinda cool too, and I REALLY liked Rod Tidwell's first commercial. I don't like a photo gallery that just includes stills from the movie, however. The deleted scenes (w/optional commentary) were good, with Crowe saying he's very glad some were cut and not so glad about others.
The audio mix on the movie itself was surprisingly strong on the surrounds, and the video looks darn good too.
What did you think?

P.S. I read the whole "Mission Statement" and found it mildly entertaining (but very long). However, I noticed one weird thing: the word "neutral" is spelled "nuetral" all the way through. Do you think this was intentional?

haven't watched any of the extras yet, but just watched the movie this morning.
it's only the second time i've seen it, and i have to say this is one of the best $18 i've spent on dvd's yet.
the a/v quality is definately in the handful of discs i have that are truly reference quality.
it sure looks loaded and on top of all that,
it's a terrific film to boot.

just might be my favorite disc of the year so far

The video commentary is by far one of the best, most enjoyable extras I've ever experienced. Worth the price of admission alone.

Awesome movie. Awesome dvd.

On the video commentary, didn't you guys feel Rene Zellwigger looked really bad? It looked like the left side of her neck was swelled up, and her face looked kinda ragged. Is it just me?

Transfer, top notch. Sound, top notch. Commentary (and video commentary), top notch. Extras, not top notch, but still very good. The deleted scenes were interesting enough (especially the scene on the plane), the complete mission statement is actually a great read, and there are a few rehearsal clips (not very impressive at all). Tidwell's commercial is pretty amusing. The making of featurette is decent, as well. I'd rate the disc like this:

MOVIE: A
VIDEO: A
SOUND: A
EXTRAS: A-

Yes, she looked bad. So did Tom Cruise with that weirdo hat.
Funniest line from commentary by Cuba Gooding Jr. re "Show me the money!"---"That stupid phrase, branded me for life, doesn't matter where I am, I can be at a funeral and some pri*k will come up to me and say 'SHOW ME THE MONEY!'"
