DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits very appealing picture quality, with images that are sharp and detailed. Color fidelity is excellent, with balanced fleshtones, rich and vibrant hues and deep, solid blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered throughout. Occasionally noticed is a bit of edge enhancement, but its minimal appearance is not too distracting. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD-ROM Review:
From the PCFriendly DVD-ROM menu, you are given links called Trailer, Features, The Squad, What's it About, Action Shots, Spirit Stuff, Cheer Quiz, and DVD Newsletter. In the Features section, you can find seven of the bonus material found in the DVD-Video portion of this disc. All of this can be viewed on a DVD Player, as well as through your DVD-ROM drive. Biographies on 14 of the cast and three of the crew can be found in The Squad. Each biography includes an introduction on the character, major films each person has worked on, and a picture. What's it About contains a short write-up on Bring it On's story, which introduces the main characters and locations. Twenty still images from the film can be found in the Action Shots section. These pictures can be printed by right clicking on the screen, and selecting the print option. A screensaver, with or without audio, can be found in the Spirit Stuff section. This screensaver is exactly like the introduction to the DVD-ROM components: introduces the main cast with pictures of each. The Cheer Quiz section has a short 10-question quiz on different aspects of cheerleading. After you complete all the questions, you are shown the correct answers, with no reward for getting any correct. By clicking the DVD Newsletter link, you are sent to the Internet, where you can sign up to receive Universal's newsletter in your email announcing future releases. Playing the movie from the PCFriendly software sends you to Universal's movie advertising montage, and on to the opening scene. This title has some great features, but is not wholly complete. This title is one that could have incorporated a script very easily, and really should have been included. Other then that, all the sections were well done, with a nice presentation and a good use of sound. (Danny Richelieu)
