Ben Stiller's directorial debut, the Gen-X romantic comedy Reality Bites, gets the tenth anniversary treatment on this special edition from Universal. The film is presented in a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. A Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Surround. English and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by Stiller and screenwriter Helen Childress. At the time of the DVD's release, this was still the only film credit earned by Childress, and she obviously savored her experience creating and working on the film. The pair discusses how the cast came together and how helpful the producers at Jersey Films (this being that entity's second film) were. Deleted scenes, a retrospective featurette, and the theatrical trailer are available. The music video for Lisa Loeb's "Stay," and an interview with the singer/songwriter rounds out this solid disc.
