21 & Over appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-Ray Disc. Across the board, the flick looked solid.
Sharpness was strong. From start to finish, the flick presented concise images without any obvious issues connected to softness. Jagged edges and shimmering didn’t occur, and edge enhancement remained absent. Source flaws also failed to present any problems, as the movie offered a clean image.
For the most part, Over went with the teal and orange palette dominant in modern Hollywood. These tendencies weren’t overwhelming, though; this wasn’t teal-and-orange crazy like A Good Day to Die Hard. Overall, the colors seemed fine, so even with the tint, the hues worked well enough. Blacks were dark and tight, while shadows showed good delineation. This was a positive presentation.
As for the film’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, it was consistently fine but not great. Like most comedies, this one went with a pretty restrained soundfield. During some of the wilder scenes, elements moved around the room in a decent manner, though they never became especially impressive. The surrounds offered moderate reinforcement and not much more.
Audio quality satisfied. Speech was consistently crisp and tight, without edginess or other issues. Music fared best, as the score and songs provided nice vivacity and punch. Effects didn’t have much to do, but they seemed acceptably accurate and full. Nothing here impressed, but I thought the track deserved a “B-“.
Only minor extras fill out the disc. Levels of Intoxication runs three minutes, 48 seconds and features writers/directors Scott Moore and John Lucas and actors Justin Chon, Miles Teller and Skylar Astin. They discuss how drunk Chon had to act in various scenes. It includes a few mildly interesting tidbits but usually remains a tepid promotional piece.
In the three-minute, eight-second Tower of Power, we hear from Astin, Chon, Teller, and actor Sarah Wright. They tell us a little about the movie’s “Tower of Power” sequence in this fluffy, forgettable featurette.
A Gag Reel lasts two minutes, 24 seconds. For the most part, it consists of the usual flubs and giggles. However, it throws out a few alternate lines, so those make it a bit more interesting than most of its ilk.
The disc opens with ads for The Internship, A Good Day to Die Hard, and Movie 43. Sneak Peek tosses in promos for Cheech and Chong’s Animated Movie and Archer Season 3. The Blu-ray also gives us the trailer for Over.
A second disc provides a DVD Copy of Over. It comes with no extras other than some previews.
If you like Hangover-style comedy, will you get anything out of 21 & Over? Maybe, but don't expect a lot from it; while not without its own merits, it lacks much inspiration or creativity. The Blu-ray delivers good picture and audio but lacks notable supplements. This becomes a decent but forgettable comedy.
