Til There Was YouTil There Was You on DVD

Excessively syrupy and not really offering anything we haven't seen many times before, this flick tells the tale of two people who finally fall in love after running just outside each other's circle for some twenty years.

Still, it isn't a bad romance and there are some good moments in it.

Jeanne Tripplehorn is Gwen, a ghost writer looking for her perfect man. Nick (Dylan McDermott) is an up and coming architect and her perfect man, but she doesn't find that out until about the last two minutes of the flick, by which time there's no time left for the screen to build their relationship so the filmmakers merely jump forward in time to after they're married parents who are obviously still in love.

More interesting would have been them finding themselves a little earlier in the movie, then falling in love despite themselves.

Gwen goes through a few men during the course of the movie, while Nick is mostly involved with a former child star (Sarah Jessica Parker) on whose memoirs Gwen is working and whose heritage building his company is trying to buy so it can put up a new structure.

The leads are all good in their roles, and there's a good supporting cast (including Jennifer Aniston and a couple of cute kittens) along for the ride as well, but while this is a reasonably entertaining romantic comedy the romance and the comedy aren't done as well as they could be.

The DVD is fine, however, despite a dearth of extras. The anamorphic widescreen picture (16x9 TV compatible) looks fine, with good colors and sharp images, and though the Dolby Digital 5.1 audio quality is very good there isn't much surround.

Extras are limited to the trailer.
