Doug McHenry's urban drama Jason's Lyric comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. Subtitles are accessible in both of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer and a collectible booklet. The film looks and sounds fine, although it could look and sound better. This is an acceptable, if run-of-the-mill DVD release from MGM/UA.

The best ghetto/romantic story i've ever read. It was sooo sweet and sour all at once!

Nothing beats ghetto love!!! Two people who know what its like to go through the hard times of living in a rough part of town and wanting to make it out in the world to have a better life. I can relate to this - real, true love between a man and a woman is a bond that's hard to break. This is my all time favorite love story, I can't watch it enough.

A classic tale of romeo and juliet with the ghetto fabulous twist. This movie perfectly illustrates the perfect romance. It gives it's viewers the notion that maybe there is such thing as romance and maybe just maybe the love bug might just happen to sting me one day. This was one movie that i watched and in the end it made me for one believe in love again and also it left me feeling all warm and tingly inside. This is a must see for everyone who believes in true love. It also gives hope to those who don't.
