review by Todd Doogan, special to The Digital Bits

Film Rating: C-
Writer/director Marshall Brickman helped Woody Allen bring Annie Hall to life, and after seeing this movie, it's easy to see who brought more talent to the table. Brickman's Lovesick reads like a standard SNL sketch movie. Outlandish characters surround Dudley Moore as he comes to grips with love and life, as a Manhattan psychiatrist who falls in love with patient Elizabeth McGovern.

Disc Ratings (Video/Audio/Extras): B-/C-/F
The audio is mono. The video is a little hazy and there are no extras. Yep, that's about it.

Overall Rating: D+
Tired flick, much less than spectacular DVD. Can anyone figure out I'm not a fan of the film?

Specs and Features

96 mins, PG, full frame (1.33:1), single-sided, single-layered, Snapper case, scene access (33 chapters), language: English (DD 2.0 mono), subtitles: English, Close Captioned

Bottom line

I wouldn't buy it, but that's just me. I guess it's an okay DVD, if you have a serious inkling to pick it up. Otherwise, a bargain-bin rental.
