Story Synopsis:
Gross-out sex comedies are going to have to work hard to parallel the smut in this one.

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a colorful, bright picture, with hues that are well balanced and fully saturated. Images are sharp and nicely detailed, with good contrast and shadow delineation. Edge enhancement is not much of a problem with this DVD, but there is some pixelization noticed. Overall, the picture is quite satisfying for the gross-out hijinks. (Suzanne Hodges) Also includes a modified 1.33:1 version (not reviewed).
