When 30-year-old self-proclaimed homebody Mack Martin (ELIZABETH LAIL) reluctantly joins a Palm Springs bachelorette trip for her best friend Carla (TAYLOUR PAIGE), her inner 70-year-old is released — literally. The frustrated writer and influencer magically transforms into her future self: “Aunt Rita” (DIANE KEATON). Freed from the constraints of other people’s expectations, Rita comes into her own, becoming an unlikely social media sensation and sparking a tentative romance with Mack’s adorable dog-sitter, Jack (DUSTIN MILLIGAN).



This release comes with a glossy slip cover and inside is a redemption code for the Digital HD copy. There are two featurettes: Mack & Rita: Becoming Our Truth (10:46) and Styling Glamma: The Fashion of Mack & Rita (4:31).


VIDEO – 4/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

Mack & Rita comes to Blu-ray from Lionsgate presented with a 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture here mostly looks acceptable, close-ups are sharp and well defined but some scenes had softness to it, probably done intentionally. Still, colors are well balanced in keeping with the light-hearted tone of this quirky fantasy rom-com.

The included DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track has clear dialogue levels from the center channel and there is some okay depth for a movie like this, utilized mostly for the music and score.
