  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Dane Cook takes to the Vicious Circle with his in-the-round standup comedy at the Banknorth Garden in his hometown of Boston. Nearly 18,000 dedicated and exuberant fans feel they are part of the show

DVD Picture:
While the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture looks decent enough, with deep blacks and well-resolved details, the image looks very digital, with stair step edges and heavy pixilation at times. Edge enhancement is also a minor problem. (Danny Richelieu)
