Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of THE APPLE, BEST OF THE IMPROV, THE
BONESETTER, CHASTITY, and NO SMALL AFFAIR:
THE APPLE (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 40/100):
"Did you ever wonder what the world would be like if God were a white-leisure-suit-
wearing tycoon type who drove his solid gold Rolls down from Heaven to
transport a commune of hippies over to a brand new planet? Or if Satan

BEST OF THE IMPROV (reviewed by Elizabeth Skipper, overall score

NO SMALL AFFAIR (reviewed by Lacey Worrell, overall score 33/100):
"I loved all the big frosted hair, sparkly bangle bracelets, and belted
