  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Dennis (Pegg) has an obvious problem with commitment when he leaves Libby (Newton), his pregnant bride-to-be, standing at the altar. Five years later, Libby is a single mom raising her son Jake (Matthew Fenton) with the not-so-consistent help from Jake

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 DVD features deep black levels and good shadow delineation, which, when combined with the nicely balanced contrast, can create a good sense of depth into the screen. Unfortunately, though, the heavy compression artifacts can destroy this aspect, as well as cause the picture to look overly soft and poorly resolved. Colors are bright and bold, but fleshtones appear far too pink, and greens look pastel. Luckily, source artifacts and edge enhancement are not a big problem, but the poor compression is a distraction. (Danny Richelieu)
