A Plumm Summer (2007/Paramount DVD)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: C+†††† Extras: C†††† Telefilm: C



I give anything credit that tires to be fun, even if it does not quite succeed and Caroline Zelderís A Plumm Summer (2007) does its best to be a wacky, even zany tale of a popular TV show puppet stolen and the fans who try to recover it.Turns out it is being held for ransom and the host of that show (Henry Winkler) knows the stakes when he anonymously receives the mascotís bow tie in a box!


There are some good ideas here, it is child safe and it is made in a good spirit of things, but it is ultimately for children if they even enjoy it and did not try for more jokes that were meant for adults that could have been hilarious without being dumb or undermine the safe quality of the work.Peter Scolari (Bosom Buddies) also stars.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image looks like it was shot in HD and has softness with limited colors to match.The look is better than a typical telefilm, but still misses the better looks of older filmed telefilms.The Dolby Digital 5.1 is dialogue/joke-based and limited in range as this was not though out sound field, but the recording is clean and clear enough to enjoy for the most part.Extras include deleted scenes, trailer, two behind-the-scenes featurettes, audio commentary and gag reel.
