    Release Date:

    Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Dave Chappelle, Kate Hudson, Courtney Love, Jay Mohr, Martha Plimpton, Christine Ricci and Paul Rudd highlight a cast of today`s hottest acting talents in this hip comedy about the quest for Mr. Or Mrs. Right...or at least for Mr. or Mrs. Right Now.

    It`s New Years Eve 1981, and a wild assortment of comic characters are looking for romance in NYC`s rollicking East Village. Can a poser, a hunk, a teeny bopper, a gabby cabbie, a cute klutz, and a bevy of too-cool-to-cope artists find love before the stroke of midnight? The surprising-and delightful-answers will be revealed in the clear light of the morning after.

    7 / 10
    A cute little movie about so-called relationships on new year`s eve.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression sings and the 1980`s colors look great (grotesque, that is, but still nicely represented).
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. The surrounds are used in several of the clubs scenes.
    The menus are all still.
    There are no extras on the disk.
    Bottom line - a rather witty and funny little movie, that should`ve deserved a better disk that this.
