Otherwise, dialogue is clear and easy to hear. Smaller sound effects (footsteps, doors opening, etc.) are subtle enough and do their job. Dynamic range on the whole is strong, while fidelity is pretty high.
Standard Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks are in French and Spanish, plus there are subtitles in English and Spanish.
The Blu-ray features an "extended" edition that runs about 16 minutes longer, but if that's not enough, there are 18 minutes worth of Deleted Scenes. No context is given for these, but from what's here, it seems there's more of an emphasis on the teens. I guess character development would have slowed the movie down.
A "Fame" Music Video is here as well, as a new generation tackles the iconic song. Remember My Name Character Profiles runs about 17 minutes, where the cast is each given a small moment in the sun that give visuals of their backgrounds and them in the movie. (Not sure we'll remember all their names, though — how ironic!)
Fame: National Talent Search Finalists is a featurette that runs 7 minutes, where eager performers hoping to win money and talent meetings perform. The Dancers Of Fame is a 7 minute piece that focuses on the dancers and their performances in the movie. There's nothing of real depth here, but just a hodgepodge of the evolution of the dance numbers: casting, rehearsals and the final product. Dancer Kherington Payne is also featured here.
And last but not least, there is a Digital Copy included.
