  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Oliver Martin (Kutcher) and Emily Friehi (Peet) are two strangers who were introduced to each other by joining the "Mile High Club" on a flight to New York. Spending time together in the city, the two begin a friendship that lasts over the years. Although when together it felt "A Lot Like Love," they were both convinced that they were wrong for each other. But when it seems that they may lose each other to someone else, they both find themselves wondering if what they've been looking for hasn't been right there in front of them all along. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture can look fantastic at times, boasting a vivid, well balanced color scheme, with accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images are sharp and nicely detailed, with contrast and shadow delineation exhibiting good balance. There are a few scenes that have a slightly smeared or undefined appearance, but nothing that is too distracting from the overall experience. No obtrusive edge enhancement is to be seen, and pixelization is quite limited. (Suzanne Hodges)
