Oh, I wonder, wonder, wonder, ooh, ooh, ooh, who wrote the Book Of Love? Newly divorced Jack Twiller (Young) goes on a nostalgic trip back in time as he flips through his 1956 high school yearbook. Remembering what it was like to be the new kid in school, the average American guy spent his days hanging out with Crutch (Coogan), Peanut (Egan), and the rest of his gang and, of course, always looking for love. Based on the novel Jack In The Box by William Kotzwinkle. (Tricia Littrell)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD opens with a sharp and nicely detailed picture, but as the movie flashes back to the past, the picture takes on a nostalgic soft glow to complement the setting. Colors are nicely saturated, though fleshtones can appear somewhat orange at times. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely balanced for the storytelling. Sensitive viewers may occasionally detect smearing and detail loss that suggest the overuse of digital video noise reduction. Edge enhancement is not much of a problem, but some pixelization can be noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)

Reason #109 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I think that the most important aspect of a technical publication is to be strict with the choice of content and contributing Editors. I feel well-informed by WSR, and the reading of my monthly issue helps me to appreciate the home theatre experience, especially with DVD reviews and the new equipment section. Widescreen Review is for everyone interested in a good home theatre movie experience!
