Default Hairspray on Blu-ray

I watched an advance copy of Hairspray last night. The movie was decent. Good beginning and good ending. The in-between was a bit repetitive at times.

Anyway, it is one of the first discs to feature the "picture-in-picture" commentary exclusive to HD. I must say, it is pretty damn cool. I normally don't care that much for bonus features. But watching the movie, with a small window in the bottom corner that includes video footage from the film synced up with the actual movie shots and commentaries as well by directors and producers and actors, makes for a pretty sweet time.

My only criticism is that the overlaid picture, is a bit too tiny. You practically need a 70+ inch TV or projector to enjoy it. I am 8 feet form my 56" TV and had a difficult time making sense of establishing and wide shots on the picture commentary. Close-ups were excellent though.
