  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Ryan (Prinze, Jr.) and Jennifer (Forlani) keep running into each other, and each time they do, they dislike one another even more. Eventually, of course, all that emotional conflict turns to ardent desire, and a new college-age relationship is born, complete with wacky friends (Biggs & Detmer), a cool university scene (Berkeley, California), and the uncertainty of not-yet-old-enough-to-attend-R-rated-movies-without-your-parents love.

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits images that are sharp with good detail, though sometimes the picture displays a slightly smeared quality. Colors are well balanced, with natural fleshtones, rich hues and generally deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are well rendered. Some pixelization is noticed, but aliasing and other shimmering artifacts are minor. Overall, the picture is quite pleasing, but slightly the hazy appearance is a bit annoying. (Suzanne Hodges)
