The only extra on the disc is the original trailer.
Has-been musician Gary’s (Freeman) days in a successful band with the world at his feet are long gone. Now he spends his days writing ad jingles, and whose only escape from the suffocating relationship he has with both his former bandmate (Pegg) and girlfriend (Paltrow) is in his sleep, where he encounters, literally, the woman of his dreams (Cruz). With Gary's fantasy life increasingly infected by his reality, the moving denouement heralds the power and necessity of dreams and a bittersweet acknowledgment of their limitations.
But Gary can only be with Anna in sleep which consequently sends him on a quest for more frequent slumber. With the help of a new age guru named Mel, (Danny DeVito) Gary shuns reality for the comfort of his dreams even as the troubles of his waking life increase.
