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)
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
Reason #105 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Since Issue 5 (my first), I focused on reviews of Laser Discs and now DVDs, and From The Editor's Couch. Also, WSR has a lot of punch in the new equipment features. The technical essays have been superb! My home theatre setup depended (and still depends) on knowledge gained from WSR. WSR has become the media reference for me with regard to picture and sound quality assurance in display equipment and widescreen entertainment (movies, music events, and documentaries). I still do not have Issues 1 through 4 or the Premiere Special Edition of WSR and hope you put them on the subscribers' site eventually, so that I can giggle at some of the early typos and slips (if you leave them in). However, I'm sure that the early editions make for interesting historical reading as well, because I believe WSR has moved the display industry forward through the pushing the envelope attitude of Gary Reber. Carry on.
