    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of THE COURTESANS OF BOMBAY, IT'S
    EASIER FOR A CAMEL..., MARRYING THE MAFIA, NAKED IN THE 21ST CENTURY,
    SWIMMING UPSTREAM, and TO CATCH A KING:


    THE COURTESANS OF BOMBAY (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 45/100):
    "This is the most staid, proper docudrama on courtesans ever."

    IT'S EASIER FOR A CAMEL... (reviewed by Ian Visser, overall score
    60/100):
    "It's Easier for a Camel... is a film that is unlikely to satisfy
    anyone. The tone is so uneven that watching the film, the viewer is
    never sure what emotions it is trying to evoke."

    MARRYING THE MAFIA (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 60/100):
    "I hate this kind of movie. I hate them when they're produced here, and
    I don't like them any better when they're imported from overseas. I'm
    not sure how Marrying the Mafia managed to be the highest grossing film
    in Korea in 2002, but it might have something to do with its riding the
    coattails of My Sassy Girl, the funniest romantic comedy ever made."

    NAKED IN THE 21ST CENTURY (reviewed by Neal Solon, overall score
    45/100):
    "Unfortunately, the filmmakers often use dialogue between Amber and
    other fictional characters to try to communicate facts about the history
    of the naturist movement. The effect of this is that the viewer is left
    trying to discern between fact and fiction, a worthless pursuit when
    pertinent information from the film can easily be found elsewhere."

    SWIMMING UPSTREAM (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 75/100):
    "The film plays slightly like revenge against a cruel father, and while
    he seems to deserve it, I'm not sure the audience does. I longed for
    more depth, more of a character study of Tony or the father or both, but
    Swimming Upstream is afraid to take the plunge into the deep end."

    TO CATCH A KING (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall score 79/100):
    "If you've read the Jack Higgins book, you'll notice that it loses
    something in the translation. The story's there, but the characters were
    more finely drawn in print."
