In "Seriously RED," Red (Krew Boylan) lost her job as a real estate agent, but there's something no one can take away from her: her dream of becoming the world's greatest Dolly Parton impersonator! After her act attracts the attentions of an amorous Elvis impersonator (Rose Byrne) an a powerful booking agent ( Bobby Cannavale), Red is catapulted into the top of copycat acts, becoming the onstage and romantic partner of the top Kenny Rogers impersonator. But when Red's life as an imitator starts to feel false, she discovers true happiness comes when you're being the best version of yourself. (Gar Reber)

Special features include commentary with Ddirector Gracle Otto and a digital copy.

The 1.85:1 1080p picture, reviewed on a VIZIO Quantum X P85QX-JI UHD/HDR display, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture is colorfully lively with vivid hues, especially during performances by impersonators Dolly and Kenny. The picture exhibits warmth and richness. Flesh tones are perfectly natural. Contrast is well balanced with natural black levels, brightly intense whites and revealing shadow. Resolution is revealing fine facial detail and complexions, hair, clothing and textures, The imagery is often appears a bit artificial but real at the same time. This is a brightly colorful picture that entertains. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is liively as well, especially duing the performances and music segments. Atmospherics sound realistic and enhance dimensionality. There are limited sound effects. The music expands the soundstage and extends to the surrounds to provide envelopment. Of course, this is a dialogue focused soundtrack with good spatial integration. This is a fun soundtrack with good fidelity. (Gary Reber)
