    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of CAKE, DEAL OF THE CENTURY, DOG EAT
    DOG!, THE DOT...AND MORE STORIES TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD (SCHOLASTIC VIDEO
    COLLECTION), EVERYBODY WINS, THE GARDENER (AKA SEEDS OF EVIL), GREG
    BEHRENDT IS UNCOOL, ISLAND OF LOST SOULS (1974), THE PERFECT NEIGHBOR,
    THE RICHARD PRYOR COLLECTION, and RING AROUND THE ROSIE:


    CAKE (reviewed by Jonathan Weiss, overall score 71/100):
    "Finding the right chemistry between actors can be tough and finding the
    right words to put into their mouths can be even tougher. When you take
    all that into account you can see why only a select few titles are
    universally recognized as the creme del a creme. You could also argue
    that that's probably why there are more celluloid atrocities produced in
    the name of love than any other genre."

    DEAL OF THE CENTURY (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 58/100):
    "Friedkin stages a lot of semi-interesting scenes, but they tend to lag
    and become stagnant; either Deal of the Century needed to be a serious
    movie about arms dealers or just an out-and-out slapstick comedy. As it
    is, the film is somewhere in-between."

    DOG EAT DOG! (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall score 59/100):
    "For every step forward made by the feminist movement, Jayne jiggled
    and fell down three flights of stairs. And then giggled at what she
    had done."

    THE DOT...AND MORE STORIES TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD (SCHOLASTIC VIDEO
    COLLECTION) (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 75/100):
    "Each story features characters embracing perseverance, and committing
    to do whatever they put their minds to. You know, that 'you can be
    anything you want to be' crap."

    EVERYBODY WINS (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 76/100):
    "Alas, the flick blew its wad early and coasted for the final 20 minutes
    or so to an unsatisfying conclusion."

    THE GARDENER (AKA SEEDS OF EVIL) (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 73/100):
    "This bud's not for you."

    GREG BEHRENDT IS UNCOOL (reviewed by Aaron Bossig, overall score
    65/100):
    "What Behrendt has done is give us a setup without a punchline, a
    technique he will repeat throughout the show. He's getting the audience
    to agree with him, but that's not the same as making them laugh."

    ISLAND OF LOST SOULS (1974) (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 77/100):
    "Nuking some idiot with a seagull hat is cool and all, but inspired
    moments like that are few, making Island of Lost Souls an unremarkable
    prison film."

    THE PERFECT NEIGHBOR (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 62/100):
    "There are worse ways to spend 93 minutes, though sitting through this
    derivative, predictable Lifetime movie-of-the-week wannabe ranks at
    about the 'out-patient surgery' level."

    THE RICHARD PRYOR COLLECTION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
    score 68/100):
    "He is the greatest comedian of all time and when he spoke for himself,
    no one could deny him that title. Sadly, his cinematic efforts betrayed
    him every time. Here's hoping that future generations ignore his
    filmography and concentrate on his comedy."

    RING AROUND THE ROSIE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 65/100):
    "It's not scary, but at least it has some competent actors in it. Ring
    Around the Rosie is just another notch on my belt as I wait for
    something unique and cool to hit the horror genre. This definitely
    ain't it."
