Story Synopsis:
Brittany (Ward) is part of

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits good image quality. The picture is sharp and detailed, but edge enhancement can create distraction at times. Some scenes are slightly smeared. Colors are well balanced, with nicely rendered fleshtones, rich hues and deep blacks. Minor color inconsistencies are noticed within a scene, but this is a rare occurrence. Overall, the picture is nicely rendered, with good contrast and shadow delineation. Other than edge enhancement, distractions are minimal. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD-ROM Review:
Once installation is complete, and you run the PCFriendly software, you are brought to the DVD-ROM main menu, which has links for The Story, The In Crowd, Stills, Behind The Scenes, and Trailers. The Story section includes just that, the story. It is very brief, but very effective. The main characters are introduced, as well as the plot and location. It is all done in Flash, and scrolls through automatically, allowing you to save much needed energy. In The In Crowd, you can find photographs and biographies of 12 of the main cast members. This section is extremely well presented, with small pictures on the right, which you must drag over to a larger frame. Once the picture is there, it enlarges to fit the frame, and the biography appears to the left. Eighteen still images from the film can be found in the Stills section. Clicking on each of the thumbnails enlarges them in a Web browser window. Sections titled
