  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Talk about not being able to let go. Poor Syd (Evans), still trying to get over being dumped by sexy girlfriend London (Biel), is even more distraught and desperate to get her back when he finds out she's moving to California...and with her new boyfriend! Luckily, she is having a going-away party, and Chris decides this to be the opportune time to have a heart-to-heart with her. Unfortunately, he is higher than a kite and not welcomed with open arms, but that doesn't phase our heartbroken partygoer. (Jack Kelley)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD picture exhibits a very nicely rendered color scheme, that is richly saturated with natural fleshtones and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed with well-balanced contrast and shadow delineation. There is little in the way of smearing or pixelization and there is no bothersome edge enhancement for a pleasing picture overall. (Suzanne Hodges)

For most of the presentation the Dolby Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack is limited to the front three screen channels with low level surrounds. Some outdoor scenes can be fully engaging, but generally the soundtrack is not very exciting. The entire presentation sounds rather subdued, with the overall levels encoded lower than the standard reference level. Dialogue is slightly bright, which will reach sibilance when the voices get loud. There really is not much about this soundtrack that is exciting. (Danny Richeliru)
