A Bet’s a Bet, also known as The Opposite Sex, is just another so-so rom-com with some decent performances but not much else, though I thought Geoff Stults and Mena Suvari shared some chemistry. The DVD released by Cinedigm, however, is pretty basic from the menu with only Play and Scene Selection options and nothing else.

PLOT SUMMARY

New England’s most successful divorce attorney, Vince (GEOFF STULTS) has it all – a thriving practice, good friends, and his pick of any woman in town. To him, life is one big competition, and losing is unacceptable. But Vince finally meets his match in Jane (MENA SUVARI). She is beautiful and equally successful. During the last year, she’s traveled the world, taking her revenge on all men for her cheating husband and ugly divorce. When Vince and Jane meet through their best friends, he immediately sees a new conquest and she sees a new target. Together, they enter into a series of entertaining wagers with each other where the winner gets to decide the fate of the loser.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

No features were included.

VIDEO – 3.5/5 | AUDIO – 2.5/5

A Bet’s a Bet is presented with an anamorphic widescreen 1.78 aspect ratio and for the most part looks decent with bright, cheery colors in keeping with the romantic comedy genre.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track on the other hand is heavy-handed. While the music and score were OK, the dialogue however is fonrt-heavy and topped out due to what I assume was poor on-set sound design.

OVERALL – 2.25/5

Overall, A Bet’s a Bet, also known as The Opposite Sex, is just another so-so rom-com with some decent performances but not much else, though I thought Geoff Stults and Mena Suvari shared some chemistry. The DVD released by Cinedigm, however, is pretty basic from the menu with only Play and Scene Selection options and nothing else.
