Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Cheeky!'s 1.85: 1080p transfer is probably better than any standard-def incarnation of the picture, but not by much. This is a clear case of not doing all that much to ensure pristine video quality - detail is often smeared, color accuracy is all over the place, and compression artifacting is apparent way more often than home theater enthusiasts might expect. Aliasing and banding are also concerns here. Again, this isn't an awful presentation, but fans of the film looking for a high-def upgrade will be disappointed.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
A big miss: Cheeky! comes to Blu-ray with lossy English and Italian Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes, and it's a drag. Yeah, the movie's sound design isn't exactly an exercise in ambition, but the film deserves more. Dialogue, music, atmospherics, and effects all sound fine here, but lossy is lossy. Too bad.
