  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Naive, small-town girl Katie Gregerstitch (Simpson) is heartbroken when her long-time boyfriend moves to New York City. The Blonde beauty decides to surprise her long-distance love with a visit. Katie is the one who is surprised when she finds her man in the arms of another woman. Instead of running back home to Oklahoma, Katie's Ambition is to stay in the Big Apple and make a new life for herself. (Stacey Pendry)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.84:1 DVD exhibits a somewhat soft image, with fine details almost completely removed from the image. Colors are bold and vibrant, but fleshtones can have a somewhat greenish hue. Contrast is generally nicely balanced. Details in the whites are rendered well, and while black levels are not very deep, shadows are delineated nicely. The image can look very flat, though, and edge enhancement can become somewhat of a distraction. (Danny Richelieu)
