Girl Most Likely appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 1.85:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The movie came with a good but unexceptional presentation.
Sharpness became an occasional concern, as sporadic shots looked oddly soft. Nonetheless, most of the movie brought pretty good delineation.
No issues with jagged edges or moiré effects materialized, and I saw no edge haloes. Print flaws remained absent.
Colors leaned toward a subdued impression of teal and amber. Though the hues didn’t excel, they worked fine given the production’s goals.
Blacks felt fairly deep and dense, while low-light shots delivered reasonably positive clarity. While it didn’t excel, the image usually worked fine.
I didn’t expect much from a character comedy-drama like Girl, and the DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio fell into the anticipated low-key results. The soundscape walked the subdued side of the street.
Some scenes on streets, casinos or seaside offered moderate involvement, and a thunderstorm kicked to life. Music spread across the spectrum in a generally positive manner. However, the soundfield failed to add much to the proceedings.
Audio quality satisfied, with music that seemed warm and full. Speech came across as natural and concise.
Effects lacked much to do, but they remained accurate and without distortion. This became an adequate mix for a character flick.
A few extras fill out the disc, and we find two featurettes. Life in the Human Shell goes for three minutes, 14 seconds and shows hidden camera footage of the “Human Shell” in action. It goes nowhere.
Making Most Likely goes for eight minutes, 44 seconds. It involves writer Michelle Morgan, producers Alix Madigan and Celine Rattray, directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, and costume designer Tom Broeker.
“Making” looks at the movie’s roots and path to the screen, story/characters, cast and performances, costumes and location details. I like Morgan’s comments about how the movie reflects her own life but otherwise the reel feels superficial.
Three Deleted Scenes occupy a total of two minutes, 39 seconds. Some minor comedy emerges but none of them offer substantial plot/character information.
A Gag Reel spans two minutes, 29 seconds. It provides the usual goofs and giggles, which disappoints because I hoped it might come with some alternate lines.
The disc opens with ads for Much Ado About Nothing (2012), Thanks for Sharing, Friends With Kids and The Switch. No trailer for Girl appears here.
Girl Most Likely comes with a good cast and an interesting concept. However, it never develops into a satisfying result, as it prefers goofy silliness to strong development. The Blu-ray comes with generally positive picture, adequate audio and a smattering of bonus materials. The movie wastes its talent.
