  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Meandering his way from one menial job to another, Larry Daley (Stiller) reluctantly takes a job at New York

DVD Picture:
While the anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD can look good, with well-saturated colors and good contrast balance, edge enhancement can become bothersome. Fleshtones can look plugged up at times, but fine details can also be delivered well; other times, however, they can look rather soft. The color scheme can also be unnaturally hot outdoors, which can also be slightly distracting. (Danny Richelieu)
