  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Body Shots is intended to be a look at the world of twenty-something dating at the end of the 20th Century. It tries to tell us that the typical type of evening with a couple getting to know one another through dinner and a show is dead, and now it

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a beautiful picture, with rich, vibrant colors that are well balanced with accurate fleshtones and endless blacks. The picture is sharp and finely detailed into backgrounds, with excellent depth and clarity. The scenes that take place at night are the most appealing, with excellent shadow delineation. There are infrequent instances in which fine details create slight shimmering. Pixelization is occasionally apparent. Sometimes edge enhancement is noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD-ROM Review:
This title has a decent introduction and main menu, with a great theme for the movie. Once at the main page, there are six links to choose from, with the good stuff at Script-to-Screen and Original Website. The script is done well, with easy to read print, and a window dedicated to playing the scene you are reading. You can print each chapter of the script individually, or the entire script if you choose. At the Original Website, you can find cast and character biographies, literature on the story and behind-the-scenes, and a quote from each character on their views towards sex, love, and talk. Also from the Web site, you can watch the trailer or go online to watch interviews with the characters. Playing the movie from the PCFriendly software takes you directly to the DVD-Video main menu, which works well using a mouse to navigate. Body Shots is a fairly good title, but whenever you tried going back to the main menu, the introduction was forced upon you. I really despise it when they don't look at that little minor detail. Other then that, there is a lot of information here, and the character biographies are a really great idea. (Danny Richelieu)
