  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
All they ever wanted was money, sex, and love. And minimum wage jobs were not going to get them there. So small-time crooks and bona fide Gold Diggers Calvin (Friedle) and Leonard (Owen) hook up with two sixtysomething women, Doris (Lasser) and Betty (Taylor), when they see the size of the ladies

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits a bright and colorful image, with well-balanced hues, accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely balanced contrast and shadow delineation. Film grain is occasionally noticed in the source element, as are occasional flecks of dirt. There is little in the way of bothersome edge enhancement, but pixelization can be a problem at times. (Suzanne Hodges)
