As long as your movie is under about 1hr 50 minutes it should fit on a DVD.
The thing which determines how much time is available on your DVD is usually the complexity of any Menus which you add in iDVD.
With a simple Menu, which may "eat up" 10 mins of space, you should have room for 1h 50mins of movie.
With complex, multi-level menus, your movie running time may be reduced by about 25 mins, or possibly more.
Keep menus simple, and you should have space for about 1hr 50mins. It's always running time which counts, NOT "size" (in GB) of your movie.G3, G4, G5, Intel Mac mini, late'08 MBP; iMovie 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9; FCE HD, FCP HD;, Mac OS X (10.5.7), Sony, Canon, Panny HD cams; FW drives, iPods, TV, iPhone, Time Capsule, etc.
