"Better Luck Tomorrow" is the story of stereotypical Asian high school overachiever Ben Manibag (Shen).

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits images that have somewhat of a soft appearance, but can be capably detailed. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. While whites can occasionally appear slightly blown out, contrast and shadow delineation are satisfying. The picture can have a gritty texture at times, and some noise and dust is noticed in the source element. Edge enhancement and pixel breakup are also noticed on occasion. (Suzanne Hodges)
