SRP $29.99 1.85:1(16:9) DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 PARAMOUNT

PARAMOUNT has released the surprisingly funny, box-office fiasco, ďMARCI X.Ē 

Lisa Kudrow stars as Marci, the heir to her fatherís media empire, who must use her wit and charm to change the destructive behaviour of a rap star(Damon Wayans)whose antics are threatening the survival of the company.

 

While Damon Wayans has proven to be inconsistent(at best) in terms of his comedic talents with past feature films(Major Payne, Bulletproof), director Richard Benjamin has always been consistent in being horrible(Made In America, Milk Money,etc).  So, itís a real surprise to find this film is generally pleasing.  Sure, there are some incredibly lame moments, but overall, itís funny!

 

PARAMOUNT has preserved the filmís 1.85:1 ratio, with 16:9 enhancement.  Colors are often vibrant, and well rendered.  Contrast is flawless, with exquisite definition in even the darkest scenes.  Fleshtones appear natural.

 

PARAMOUNT  has presented a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, with a generally active surround mix.  Ambient effects are present in almost every scene, and the musical soundtrack is well complimented through all speakers. Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.
