Widower and father of three, Dan Burns (Carell) is used to handing out relationship advice in his weekly newspaper column, Dan In Real Life. With his hands full caring for three daughters, who are growing-up fast, Dan has little time to focus on his own happiness or dating. While attending a semi-annual family get-together, Dan meets Marie (Binoche) while shopping in a local bookstore. Dan immediately falls for Marie, but complications arise when Dan finds that Marie is dating his brother Mitch (Cook). (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD shows solid, deep black levels and good shadow delineation helping create a dimensional-looking image. Colors are bold and vibrant, with a natural balance that brings life to the image. Fleshtones look healthy and accurate. Details are resolved nicely, and pixel breakup is not problematic. Edge enhancement is minor and generally not noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #80 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper. I consider Widescreen Review to have the most professional bias of the home theatre magazines. Whereas something like Sound & Vision, I would consider to be more of a consumer bias. One of the things I like about Widescreen Review is the articles about the industry and technical articles (e.g., room setup). I also like its detailed equipment reviews that tell it like it is. One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
