  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Now, this is one bet that's definitely "Worth Winning," thinks weatherman Taylor Worth (Harmon). So, he takes the challenge and manages to become engaged to three different women in only three months. But when the ladies discover what he's been up to, they decide to give Taylor a dose of his own medicine and show him a thing or two about love. Based on the novel by Dan Lewandowski. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD has severely soft characteristics. Details are adequate, but a hazy appearance is inherent throughout. Colors are nicely rendered and generally well balanced, though fleshtones can seem slightly ruddy at times. There is a vertical jump and slight distortion noticed (easily located when jumping to Chapter 7) that can be a bit distracting. The source element is generally clean, with few artifacts. Pixel breakup is noticed, but there is no edge enhancement worth mentioning. (Suzanne Hodges)
