Poor Leslie's (Kudrow) life has just gone Kabluey. Her husband is serving in Iraq in the National Guard Reserves when she receives a notice from her job that she must return from her leave of absence or lose her medical benefits for her family. Faced with stacks of unpaid bills and no extra money to pay for day care for her two rowdy sons, Leslie invites her brother-in-law Salman (Prendergast) to come and stay with her. But Salman has his own issues, so completely broke, he decides to take a job as a faceless blue mascot for a dying Internet company in addition to babysitting his two obnoxious nephews.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.83:1 DVD often has a digitized appearance, with compression artifacts noticeable. Solid fields of color or gray are excessively, and distractingly noisy, and occasional dirt flecks can be seen. Resolution is soft, and the picture often appears overly harsh. Black levels are rendered well, but the deepest shadows seem to be clipped. Contrast is balanced fairly well, and the brown- and green-heavy color scheme is saturated nicely. Edge enhancement is noticeable, but it is not a huge distraction. (Danny Richelieu)
