"What can I say? This is a great boxset of comedy movies that have been released in the past couple of years with one being recent. They are adult oriented comedies but they are the best.
On Blu-ray, the sound is indeed better. In terms of picture quality, the movies still look better than upconverted DVDs, but compared to other Blu-ray movies, they aren't as sharp."

"In the past four years, director, producer and screenwriter Judd Apatow has become a well known name in the comedy genre. This 3-disc comedy collection includes three of Apatow's most outrageously funny comedies: "The 40-Year-Old Virgin", "Knocked Up" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". In "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" (2005), mild-mannered forty-year-old Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) never had sex. While his close colleagues are determined to help him lose his virginity, Andy begins a mutual no-sex relationship with a single mother (Catherine Keener). In "Knocked Up" (2007), a drunken one-night stand changes the lives of career-minded entertainment journalist Allison Scott (Katherine Heigl) and immature slacker Ben Stone (Seth Rogen). Now facing parenthood, can these two mismatched individuals forge a relationship and raise a child? In "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008), struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) was dumped by his famous girlfriend, actress Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), and takes an impulsive trip to Hawaii to forget her and raise his spirits. Unfortunately, he ends up staying in the same luxury hotel with his ex and her new self-absorbed rock star boyfriend (Russell Brand). All three unforgettable comedies are big-hearted and laugh-out-loud funny. They feature likable storylines, good ensemble casts, hilarious awkward moments and plenty of over-the-top raunchy humor. All three movies were commercially successful and well received by US critics.
For fans of rude, crude and outrageous humor, the 3-disc "Ultimate Unrated Comedy Collection" is a highly recommended purchase. All three Judd Apatow comedies are presented in their theatrical 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen formats. Both theatrical and unrated versions of these movies are included in this 3-disc Blu-Ray collection. The picture quality is pretty good but not awe-inspiring. Its DTS-HD audio is well balanced and perfectly clear. Each Blu-Ray disc comes fully loaded with special features including feature-length audio commentaries with the film's director, production crew and cast members, extended and deleted scenes, outtakes, gag reels and short behind-the-scenes featurettes. Overall, "Ultimate Unrated Comedy Collection" receives an "A-"."
Great Comedy Collection

"I bought this 3 pack since it was cheaper then getting each of them individually, and honestly all 3 are worth owning for fans of the Judd Apatow type of comedies that we're seeing lately. The real world, rated R type with a combination of stoner and dirty humor mixed together. The humor throughout is pretty much the same because of the source, and you'll also see some of the same characters pop up that are normal to Apatow's crew like Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen.
All 3 are solid comedies, with my favorite being Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I only give this 4 stars because the Blu-ray quality on all of these aren't exactly the greatest. They're better then DVD, sure, but they aren't as sharp as some of the best looking Blu-ray transfers out there which is a bit of a disappointment. My box also came with all 3 blu-ray cases inside a bit nicked and damaged, which is a bit of a disappointment. The box these come in is just a cheap cardboard cover with the 3 regular movies kept inside. I've thrown away the box and just filed the movies on my shelf in alphabetical order."
