    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ADDRESS UNKNOWN, CAREER GIRLS,
    CHOPPERTOWN: THE SINNERS, THE DARK, THE FAREWELL, I LOVE YOU LIKE CRAZY
    CAKES... AND MORE STORIES ABOUT FAMILIES, RIDE BEYOND VENGEANCE, THE
    SIMIAN LINE, SMOKEOUT FESTIVAL PRESENTS: BODY COUNT, SWINDLED
    (INCAUTOS), and YOU STUPID MAN:


    ADDRESS UNKNOWN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 75/100):
    "Address Unknown takes every opportunity to smash us over the head with
    the unpleasnt fact that the American military base is nearby, and that
    the characters' lives are analogous to those of the dogs that they
    abuse. After a while, it becomes tiring and no longer has the impact
    that it should."

    CAREER GIRLS (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 83/100):
    "Unfortunately, Career Girls could easily be classified as 'Leigh-lite.'
    As a matter of fact, one could assume that this film was the work of a
    Leigh wannabe."

    CHOPPERTOWN: THE SINNERS (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall score
    80/100):
    "I personally have never ridden a chopper, so maybe I'm missing out on
    one of life's greatest pleasures. But the other themes seen in
    Choppertown: The Sinners, those of friendship, brotherhood, and
    overcoming adversity are universal for all of us."

    THE DARK (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall score 19/100):
    "This film sucks...bad. It's largely a study in boredom where lifeless
    characters do uninteresting things and a creature that's billed to be a
    horrendous 'mutilator' merely succeeds in chewing up our time."

    THE FAREWELL (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 75/100):
    "Say the name Bertolt Brecht to a number of people and it is likely you
    will get one singular response, if any -- 'Mack the Knife.' Thanks to
    Bobby Darren and dozens of other nightclub crooners, this signature song
    from the writer's classic Threepenny Opera (music by Kurt Weill) has
    become an unlikely lounge lizard staple."

    I LOVE YOU LIKE CRAZY CAKES... AND MORE STORIES ABOUT FAMILIES (reviewed
    by David Johnson, overall score 85/100):
    "Three stories, plus a hefty bonus, comprise the selection for this
    disc, and the illustration styles range from pan and scan over the
    original book drawings to partial animation. What they all have in
    common: the desire to make you well up with emotion as the sight of
    families who love each other, no matter how poorly drawn their
    teeth are."

    RIDE BEYOND VENGEANCE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 69/100):
    "Looking conspicuously like it was shot in between cast and crew breaks
    from a show like Rawhide, everything about Ride Beyond Vengeance is
    embarrassingly low-rent, from the unconvincing sets to the static
    cinematography, the cameos by fading stars to Richard Markowitz's
    lackluster musical score."

    THE SIMIAN LINE (reviewed by Neal Masri, overall score 60/100):
    "The Simian Line."

    SMOKEOUT FESTIVAL PRESENTS: BODY COUNT (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 65/100):
    "Even by the loose standards of quality in rap metal, Body Count's
    musicianship is lacking at best, combining tired, rapid-fire riffs with
    some of the most tasteless and unfortunate lyrics this side of Vanilla
    Ice's 'Turtle Power.'"

    SWINDLED (INCAUTOS) (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score
    80/100):
    "This movie works, and it works so well that even if you know exactly
    where it's going, you'll still have a hell of a lot of fun watching
    it unfold."

    YOU STUPID MAN (reviewed by Michael Rankins, overall score 65/100):
    "Despite its unflattering title, You Stupid Man is not a stupid film.
    Indeed, parts of it are rather clever, like director Brian Burns's use
    of subtitles to convey what Owen and Nadine are thinking -- but not
    saying -- as they part ways at the conclusion of their disastrous
    first date."
