    so itself."

    HAPPY LESSON: TEACHERS' PET COLLECTION (reviewed by Geoffrey Miller,
    overall score 78/100):
    "When it's not taking itself seriously, it's a wild, entertaining ride.
    During a time when so many anime series are intent on telling epic tales
    crammed full of muddled philosophical musings, its modest scope is
    refreshing. If you're looking for some light-hearted comedic anime, you
    could do worse."

    JANE GOODALL'S RETURN TO GOMBE (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 76/100):
    "Much has changed since Goodall's last visit, including the usurping of
    the tyrannical alpha male, Frodo, the dominant chimp. Frodo is bullish
    and bad-tempered, and has terrorized his community of chimps, almost
    breaking Goodall's neck on one occasion and, more amusingly, beating the
    crap out of 'The Far Side' cartoonist Gary Larson on a visit to Gombe.
    Well, maybe not 'amusing' per se, but certainly ironic."

    OLD MEN IN NEW CARS (GAMLE MAEND I NYE BILER) (reviewed by Neal Solon,
    overall score 85/100):
    "Old Men in New Cars is a film that could have failed easily, but it
    didn't. The caricatures it draws could have been wildly overdone, but
    they're not. The film succeeds on the strength of these caricatures."

    RED RYDER: DOUBLE FEATURE VOLUME 9 (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 75/100):
    "Okay, picture this: There's a giant Red Ryder book standing on end in
    front of a classic John Ford-style western background. The book opens,
    and out steps Red Ryder himself, shooting his guns wildly with a grin on
    his face. That's the opening shot of both of these films, setting the
    cheesiness bar pretty damn high."

    TRIPLE B COLLECTION (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 71/100):
    "Those other trash B-movies, they're pretenders. These flicks are the
    real deal."
