  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Ed (Mohr) and Alice (Nicholson) are the perfect couple, or are they? Engaged to be married, Alice decides that maybe they should first be Seeing Other People before settling down to a lifetime of faithfulness. Wishing for a few more sexual experiences, she convinces the not-so-sure Ed that this is the best thing for both of them. But when Alice gets what she wants things become a little complicated, and the couple wonders if they were really meant to be after all. (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture exhibits a rich, solid color palette, with natural fleshtones, bold hues, and deep blacks. Images can be sharp and detailed with excellent textures, or slightly hazy and softly focused. Contrast and shadow delineation are well balanced throughout. While there is some minor smearing of finer details noticed at times, edge enhancement is not a problem with this title. Pixelization is also quite minor, with no distracting image breakup.
