Ryan (Prinze, Jr.) and Jennifer (Forlani) keep running into each other, and each time they do, they dislike one another even more. Eventually, of course, all that emotional conflict turns to ardent desire, and a new college-age relationship is born, complete with wacky friends (Biggs & Detmer), a cool university scene (Berkeley, California), and the uncertainty of not-yet-old-enough-to-attend-R-rated-movies-without-your-parents love.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits images that are sharp with good detail, though sometimes the picture displays a slightly smeared quality. Colors are well balanced, with natural fleshtones, rich hues and generally deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are well rendered. Some pixelization is noticed, but aliasing and other shimmering artifacts are minor. Overall, the picture is quite pleasing, but slightly the hazy appearance is a bit annoying. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #123 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for the articles—honest. Terry Paullin's industry insight is refreshing and lively. The lack of comparisons of which home theatre-in-a-box is best or which sub $200 DVD player is best leaves more room for in-depth product and movie reviews. Most importantly, though, I read WSR for the caricature of Gary Reber morphed on to the movie featured on the cover in the Editor's Couch page. Pierce Brosnan had better watch out!
