    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
    were a fey music mogul who resembled Udo Kier's interpretation of the
    role of Carmen Ghia from The Producers?"

    BEST OF THE IMPROV (reviewed by Elizabeth Skipper, overall score
    35/100):
    "They say comedy is perishable, which would explain why I'm still
    waiting to laugh at Best of the Improv, a compilation of six 'best-of'
    clip shows from A&E's An Evening at the Improv, which aired from 1982
    through 1996. Because as far as I can tell, the comedy routines included
    in this six-disc set are all from the '80s...and all long past their
    expiration dates."

    THE BONESETTER (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 65/100):
    "I'll give Brett Kelly his due. For zero bucks, he put together a short
    film (72 minutes including credits) with okay pacing and actors --
    though hamstrung by a lack of ability -- that take the movie seriously.
    The story is no worse than normal creature fare, and he managed to tack
    on a decent little twist ending."

    CHASTITY (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 57/100):
    "Chastity is lugubrious, ill-conceived camp. It's so bad it's funny at
    points. Still, I can't recommend it in good conscience, but I know some
    Cher fans out there will hurt me if I trash it any more -- or worse,
    drag me to yet another stop in her neverending farewell tour."

    NO SMALL AFFAIR (reviewed by Lacey Worrell, overall score 33/100):
    "I loved all the big frosted hair, sparkly bangle bracelets, and belted
    satin shirts that defined the '80s. Is it any wonder that 21st-century
    fashion feels kind of boring in comparison? No Small Affair gets the
    look of the '80s just right. Now if only we could do something about
    the plot."
