Agreeable enough comedy ruined by incompetent DVD transfer,
This review is from: All Of Me [DVD]  (DVD)
I saw this film in the cinema when it was originally released, had it on VHS, and watched it a year or so ago on BBC1: it never once looked like this tragic cock-up of a transfer, in miserable pan-and scan, in which Steve Martin's light grey suit comes out camouflage green, and all flesh tones are a sort of bluey-lilac; everything else is in a sort of grainy sludge-sepia, so that the interiors of Martin's office and Tomlin's mansion are largely indistinguishable. The sound is also apalling, most definitely not in the advertised stereo so much as badly distorted mono. This is the worst DVD transfer of a picture from a major studio I've ever seen...
