Balthazar Getty is Sol Goode, charming campus rogue unable, as his best friend Chloë(Katharine Towne) says, to commit to a relationship for longer than 20 minutes. The hijinks can’tlast forever, though, and as Sol matures, he realizes he’s fallen in love. No points for guessingwho with. The direct-to-camera asides make this the college version of Malcolm in theMiddle.
The 2.0 mix is solid, if unspectacular. It is certainly crisp and clear, and…the music soundsvery good. The surround sound effects aren’t bad, but the music is dominant, and is far and awaythe most frequent sound to emerge from the rear speakers.
An equally solid transfer. The ratio is 1.85:1 widescreen. The colours are nice, very warm infact. The blacks are good too, as are the flesh tones. There is a little bit of grain, and extremelyslight edge enhancement visible.
Hardly a major release, and yet we have a commentary track, provided by writer/director/co-star Danny Comden, Balthazar Getty, Katharine Towne, and producer Tucker Tooley. Thecommentary is fairly scene specific, and though informative, is also a bit obvious, and is plaguedby annoying static. The only other extra is a trailer. Trigger the Lion’s Gate logo for trailers. Themenu’s main page is animated and scored, as are the transitions.
God knows we’ve been down this road a million times, but the addition of a commentary is anice touch.
