Janeane Garofalo (The Truth About Cats and Dogs and Reality Bites) gives another witty, engaging performance in The Matchmaker. As Marcy Tizard, she lands in a remote Irish town during its annual matchmaking festival. Men are at every corner, but love is nowhere in sight. Until she meets a man even more cynical than herself. Enjoy the wit and quirky romance of the comedy that Siskel & Ebert gave "Two Thumbs Up."

I would take one star off, because the disc was banging around in the case from coming off the spindle, which made me nervous, but it played fine. Not a hiccup.. And the movie itself deserves ten stars.
I hate to give the low rating because people will think it’s for the movie, it is not, the movie is hilarious and fun. The transfer is probably the worst I’ve come across and that is why it’s getting rated one star.
The movie gets 4 stars but the DVD gets 0 , 3 in the aggregate is being kind. Amazon should label DVDs as anamorphic or pan and scan.
Watching this you'll see why this film wasn't a big success but just shake it off and watch The Truth about Cats and Dogs to see what Janeane Garofalo can really do.
Now for the film transfer to dvd. This is this disc's Achilles heal. This was an extremely poor dvd transfer. You get a flipper disc....widescreen or formatted TV resolution. Choosing the widescreen and watching it on a 32" Vizio LCD is not very good. My guess is that they only had access to a pretty bad film print from somewhere cause when you watch it...it shows.
For $6 though....not a bad purchase.
