Story Synopsis:
When the Johnson Family goes on Vacation, the word

DVD Picture:
Visually supporting the lighthearted storytelling with a bright color palette, the anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture is quite pleasing throughout. Hues are nicely saturated with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Images are sharp with nicely rendered details and well balanced contrast and shadow delineation. Rarely does the picture exhibit any signs of smearing or softness. Very minor edge enhancement is noticed at times, but there is no bothersome pixelization. (Suzanne Hodges)
