  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Ira Black (Messina) is a single, neurotic, but brilliant psychologist who meets a free-spirited gym employee, Abby Willougby (Westfeldt). Abby is better at solving her friend's problems than selling gym memberships, and the two fall in love at first sight and decide to marry. When they meet each other's families, however, Ira & Abby are forced to rethink their strategy for living happily ever after. (Stacey Pendry)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.83:1 DVD shows overly vibrant colors that can look unnatural. Fleshtones are too red and often look blotchy. Resolution is generally poor, and some images can look smeared. Occasionally source element artifacts can be recognized. Moir
