(USA Release, September 5, 2006)
When you insert the DVD, the menu starts...this is basically what you see:
(The Denton billboard moves in closer to his followed dby Janet
bursting through the doors. This is all done as several clips from
the film connected together as one...)
If you chose the "Scene Selection" option, this is what you see...
The point of view pulls away, to review several tv sets)
(Notice that the animated smoke is not coming from Farley's cigarette,
but from his lap)
(all 8 television sets showcase a clip from the film --vs just pics--
but only the center 4 sets are links to that specific scene)
Go back to main menu, and chose language selection. This is what
(Dolby and Dolby 5.1 --not much a difference there)
(Spanish Mono --interesting to hear. Some subtitles appear during
this language track. Most intriging: this language leaves out the
wardrobe lady's "Whoops!" at the start of film, and also, the "prizes"
during Bitchin' In The Kitchen are said in spanish. All songs are
Audio Commentary - non-stop, for the most part. Great job.
However, on/off option not available on this page, but this option (Commentary)
does present on/off options in Special Features section.
Head back to the main menu for a click on Special Features.
When you click on Special features, the "tv" shows Farley's comercial

Okay, here's the story for those who wanna know...
Concept of "Theatrical Trailer" was conceived, where Cosmo's promotional
face would introduce a series of clips from the film set against the title
Trouble was...once the clips were strung together as one piece to the tune
of Shock Treatment, the art department had yet to come up with a promotional
image of Cosmo's face, nor the infamous script-like font.
So while they waited for "Cosmo" to come to life, they sent out VERY few
promotional trailers of the "song" of clips--and just tagged on the title
(see image above) at the very end. The font was based on the D-E-N-T-O-N
letters used in Denton USA set.
The purpose of sending out these unfinished trailers were just to help
get the word out in advance. While it is called "International" trailer,
by today's terms, it would be considered a "Teaser" trailer.
(And of course, we have the story behind this one too)
The bulk of the trailer is the exact same as the international trailer.
Once Cosmo's promotional face shot was captured (red is an overall theme
for the film), they placed "jail cell bars" behind him, to represent Brad's
situation in the film.
For the Rocky Horror fans, a pair of lips (I would love to know who provided
them. Pat?) was placed on top of Cosmo's lips, while Richard O'Brien's
voice (as Cosmo) introduces himself and the film.
After Cosmo's introduction, we see the clip mentioned above with the title
track as the music.
After the title track/clip, Cosmo returns to the tagline basically, before
