Donna (Paltrow) is a likable girl who never really had anything going for her until she decided to chase her dream of becoming an international airline stewardess. Terrified at first, Donna becomes really good at her job working for a small-town commuter airline and then applies with a big-name airline. But when her friend Christine (Applegate) rises to the top and Donna is thrown into the
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits the perfect perky and colorful picture for the lighthearted storytelling. The outlandish flight attendant uniforms in pinks, aquas, and greens jump from the screen, yet fleshtones remain naturally balanced. There are a few flecks of dirt noticed in the otherwise clean source element. Slight edge enhancement can be a bit bothersome for finicky viewers, but the picture is otherwise quite clean and natural. Pixelization is not a distraction. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #87 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review for at least three good reasons: 1), Reviews of new, interesting components are uniquely personal and effective. A fine example is the recent piece on the Plinius multichannel amp. 2), I am an early adopter who wants to know about things like Blu-ray and HD DVD. Widescreen Review covers HDTV issues like no other publication. I cannot find this information anywhere else. 3), I consider Joe Kane to be the video display guru par excellence. I have had my 65 inch Mitsubishi RPTV calibrated twice by a technician here. He first calibrated it after I bought it and then after a move. He does a great job. He follows Mr. Kane's arguments in WSR, and we usually discuss his latest manifesto. We trust him, and really agree with him about moving from interlaced to progressive displays of film and video. If you are an enthusiast in this field, and certainly if you are a professional, you have to be conversant with the problems and opportunities covered in Widescreen Review. The smartest thing you could do is pick one up regularly.
