Reviewer's Rating 3 out of 5  
Rated X DVD (2000)

In the words of the immortal Charlie Sheen, "Anyone want to know what gives me a stiff dick?" You'll find the answer in the well-produced biopic of the porn-making Mitchell brothers, "Rated X" - now available on an equally classy DVD.

Picture quality is good, with the flashy visual style of the film transferred to disc with both care and attention. Plus, while the US Region 1 release is in fullscreen we've got the proper widescreen edition (feeling blessed yet)?

If your amp has been idling away of late, then here's the disc to give it a good workout. The 5.1 sound mix on offer here is stuffed with detail, from the mighty thunder rolls of the opening scenes, to the constantly busy rear speaker effects, to the superb presentation of the music score.

The one extra feature is a trailer. It's not much, but there's no faulting the excellent disc transfer.
