After his father's death, young Jeffrey Mannus (Heder) vows to always look after his mother, Jan (Keaton). Now 29 years old, Jeffrey is still living at home with his widowed mom, an arrangement that suits the Mama's Boy just fine. When Jan meets a charismatic motivational speaker named Mert Rosenblum (Daniels), sparks fly, as there is instant chemistry between the two. Much to Jeffrey's dismay his mom begins to date Mert, threatening his territory and dividing his mother
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD appears overly bright, with whites that can wash out the image. Shadows are delineated well, but the elevated black level flattens the image. Colors are nicely saturated, but fleshtones have an unhealthy hue. Details are delivered nicely at times, but much of the presentation appears soft. And while edge enhancement is not a problem, the picture looks overly digitized and harsh, with occasional mosquito noise visible. (Danny Richelieu)
