Home Video Extra Features

Have pants will travel—with Warner Bothers Home Entertainment presentation of this popular chick flick. The DVD is stuffed full of extras, like deleted scenes, a “suckumentary” (a.k.a. a rough cut of the documentary Tibby and Bailey filmed over the summer), a featurette called Fun on the Set (a behind the scenes look into the gags and laughs shared by the girls), an interview with author Ann Brashares, and a video commentary titled Sisters, Secrets, and the Traveling Pants. Thrifty shoppers should note in the case of the DVD, one size doesn’t fit all—you’ll have to choose between either the wide or full screen. Both versions offer audio tracks in Dolby Digital 5.1 (English and French.)
