Special Features
Side one includes two audio commentary tracks and a trivia track that provides important information throughout the movie like what percentage of American women (and straight men) paint their nails. Good luck turning it off once you start it. Side two includes eight deleted scenes with introductions, two featurettes, and a Hoku music video.
