“I rushed right out and located the DVD of u0026quot;Big Business,u0026quot; even though I knew that Disney had a bad reputation for minimal value in extras on their DVD releases. That situation has improved over time, and seeing BB in wide screen made it all worthwhile. This movie started out funny for me and has gotten better with repeated viewings. It has an excellent pedigree with Jim Abrahams directing and Dean Cundey manning the camera, and the leads are definitely up to the challenge of dualie roles.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is unusual for a comedy to have the strong viewpoint and values expressed in this movie. Fred Wardu0026#39;s Rune talks about the simple pleasures of living in the rural country and you know that somebody involved with the script knew those pleasures personally. The characters rarely become stereotypes. Even the secondary characters are treated with respect.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDean Cundey, Director of Photography, must have been specializing in trick photography as he went on to shoot u0026quot;Back to the Future 2u0026quot; and u0026quot;3u0026quot; with even better results. The effects budget for BB was high enough to keep the believability intact.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTo me this is an all-around enjoyable light comedy.”
