Nick Nolte is a down-on-his-luck actor, who suddenly has to look after his six-year-olddaughter (who naturally winds up with a better TV career than he has). This film was a big flopfor writer/director James L. Brooks. It was originally a musical, but all the songs were cut priorto release.
The audio specifications aren’t really indicated, which smells like 2.0 to me. Theenvironment effect is all right, though not spectacular, and the left-rig…t separation is quitestrong. The voices do buzz occasionally.
The picture comes in both fullscreen and 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen versions. Thepicture is clear and clean, but a bit pale and soft. The colours are good otherwise, and there don’tappear to be any transfer difficulties.
Trailers for I’ll Do Anything, Big Daddy and As Good As It Gets. Nothing more. The menuis basic.
Interesting seeing Nolte in this kind of a role, and Albert Brooks is on hand to rant. Still, I’dgive it a miss.
