Speechless has a nice spin on the classic romantic comedy formula (opposites attract and all that) and Michael Keaton and Gena Davis share some nice chemistry and as a bonus for geeks, we do get to see Keaton and Christopher Reeve share a scene.

|Can speechwriters on opposite sides of the political fence find love and happiness in the heat of an election season? Speechless focuses on Kevin Vallick (MICHAEL KEATON) and Julia Mann (GEENA DAVIS) – Republican and Democratic speechwriters respectively – who find instant attraction and soon romance blooms between the pair as their respective candidates duke it out in a close Senatorial race. Add to the mix, Kevin’s ex-wife (BONNIE BEDOLIA) and Julia’s self-absorbed former fiancé (CHRISTOPHER REEVE) and the stage is set.|
SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5
|The only feature included was the film’s Theatrical Trailer (2:56).|
VIDEO – 3.75/5
|Olive Films releases Speechless onto Blu-ray presented with a 1080p high-definition transfer (MPEG-4 AVC codec) and shown in its original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio. For the most part his a fine-looking transfer showing off good colors throughout and detail is generally speaking sharp and well defined.|
AUDIO – 3.5/5
|The movie comes with a basic but decent DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track providing nice and clear dialogue levels to go along with some so-so depth with the score/soundtrack. It might not be a masterpiece of a lossless track but considering it is a romantic-comedy, it’s more than sufficient for a movie such as this.|
OVERALL – 2.25/5
|Overall, Speechless has a nice spin on the classic romantic comedy formula (opposites attract and all that) and Michael Keaton and Gena Davis share some nice chemistry and as a bonus for geeks, we do get to see Keaton and Christopher Reeve share a scene. The Blu-ray released through Olive Films is pretty basic with only a trailer and OK video and audio transfers.|
