  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Steve Martin

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits a slightly soft appearance, but details are generally satisfying and adequate. Colors are rich and bright, with a reddish tinge throughout the color palette. The source element is revealing of a bit of film grain and occasional flecks of dirt. Minor smearing and pixelization are noticed, but there is no obtrusive edge enhancement. (Suzanne Hodges)
