Ira Black (Messina) is a single, neurotic, but brilliant psychologist who meets a free-spirited gym employee, Abby Willougby (Westfeldt). Abby is better at solving her friend's problems than selling gym memberships, and the two fall in love at first sight and decide to marry. When they meet each other's families, however, Ira & Abby are forced to rethink their strategy for living happily ever after. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.83:1 DVD shows overly vibrant colors that can look unnatural. Fleshtones are too red and often look blotchy. Resolution is generally poor, and some images can look smeared. Occasionally source element artifacts can be recognized. Moir
Reason #114 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I appreciate the technical nature of your DVD reviews; that is, the way you rate the sound and picture quality of newly released DVDs. The reviews in most other magazines are concerned not with how good the DVD is, but with just the film itself: quality of the script, actors' performances, etc., all of which are subject to the critic's personal tastes, which may be wildly different from my own.
