Denis Leary plays Doug Munford a wheeling dealing ego maniac skirt chaser who must get the women he has betrayed to forgive him so that he can inherit a million dollars. Elizabeth Hurley plays the lawyer who must accompany him done the road to redemption and cash to ensure that he doesn’t cheat. Along the way Doug finds out that he had a daughter with one of the women who is now dead and decides that maybe he needs to change his life. Ho hum can we throw a couple of more clichés in this one,…Dennis Leary is usually a funny guy but this film has even sucked the funny out of him.
With a straight forward 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer the video end of this film like the plot really doesn’t stir up anything new. The image is a little bright overall but is at least fairly sharp and grain free. Edge enhancement is fairly noticeable at a couple of points as well.
There is no reason why this film needed a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track as nothing really happens outside of the center channel and the front stage. Dialogue is non the less intelligible and easily understood and the front image when used is fairly wide.
Special features amount to your run of the mill cast bios and a trailer for Poolhall Junkies.
Nothing new to see here, so if you are looking for a quirky romantic comedy there are probably a number of better choices out there then this piece of dawg…
