  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Bridget Cardigan (Keaton) is shocked to learn she is on the verge of losing her house and her comfortable middle-class lifestyle when her husband Don (Danson) loses his job of 30 years, due to corporate downsizing. Forced to look for a job with no experience or credentials, except for a decades-old English Lit degree, Bridget takes the only job she can get

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 DVD exhibits a picture that looks smeared, with fine details poorly resolved. Fleshtones look somewhat pinkish. Color fidelity is generally good, though. The image also appears hazy, causing the picture to look flat. Edge enhancement can be recognized and compression artifacts are also noticeable. Posterization can also be noticed on occasion. Edges can also appear overly digitized at times. (Danny Richelieu)
