No word yet on the bonus materials, if any set to be included on the release, but it would seem there aren’t any mentioned in the description (below). You can now find the Blu-ray Disc available to preorder over at Amazon. Speaking of Amazon here’s what they have listed as the item description, where it mentions the film will be making its Blu-ray debut as by this:
“FOR THE FIRST TIME ON BLU-RAY! It’s a comedy celebration as Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau reunite to reprise their roles as Felix and Oscar in Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple II. The times may have changed, but thankfully not the traits that make ex-roomies Felix Ungar (Lemmon) and Oscar Madison (Matthau) the all-time perfect mismatch. Oscar is still an uncompromising slob who thinks a brown sock and a black sock is close enough. Felix is still a fussbudget who can’t pass a spice rack without arranging it alphabetically. After years of going their separate ways, the two are together again, en route to the wedding of Oscar’s son to Felix’s daughter. They’ve got the map, the rental car, a tankful of Simon’s comedy zingers, and they’re getting 1,000 smiles to the gallon.”
