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 #48 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
In addition to Widescreen Review, I subscribe to several audio/video publications, such as Sound And Vision, Stereophile, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Audio Video Interiors, and peruse through the myriad of British audio video publications when I go to Borders, Barnes & Nobles, or Tower Records. I must acknowledge that Widescreen Review is one of the better ones because it is more like a trade publication than a magazine full of advertisements. Moreover, Widescreen Review was one of the first publications to delve into DVI and more importantly, HMDI, which I deem important because it can make a lot of the current products out there obsolete. Put simply, Widescreen Review is The New York Times of audio/video publication. In other words, if you want real news, you read The New York Times. To stay on top of what’s happening in the audio/video industry, you read Widescreen Review. Enough said.
