Poor Trixie Zurbo (Watson), she wants to be assigned a real case at her job as a security guard. She wants to be a detective. But her talent for butchering the English language makes her seem way less than capable. Finally, her bosses shunt her off to a small-town resort casino in search of pickpockets. After falling for local bad boy Dex Lang (Mulroney), Trixie suddenly finds herself sleuthing to her heart
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is generally pleasing, though images are slightly soft, appearing smeared. Colors are rich and nicely balanced with natural fleshtones and generally deep blacks. The picture seems to be slightly dark, so viewing in a completely blackened room is recommended. With that in mind, the darker scenes are wanting in shadow delineation, appearing undefined and pasty. Fine details shimmer on occasion. Some pixelization is noticed, as is minor edge enhancement. This is a picture that has the potential to look better with improvements in contrast and sharpness. (Suzanne Hodges)
