DVD General Information
Language including sexual references and some drug use
Doug Stauber (Scott) is an ordinary guy who works as an assistant manager in Donaldsons, a chain grocery store. When Doug finds out a new Donaldsons is opening in his neighborhood, he decides he would like to be made manager of his own store. Both Doug and his wife Jen (Fischer) feel he is a shoo-in for the job, but when newly transferred Assistant Manager Richard Wehlner (Reilly) decides to throw his name into the hat for the position, all bets are off. As competition for The Promotion heats up, cracks in both Richard and Doug's character begin to emerge. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD shows adequate resolution, with fine details rendered well on occasion. Black levels are fairly deep as well, and there is some detailing in the shadows. The picture is washed out with poor contrast, giving fleshtones a pallid appearance. Colors are too bright, and edge enhancement is strong and noticeable throughout. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
