    DOLLY DEAREST (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 74/100):
    "Recommended only for parents looking for an alternate approach to
    weaning their children from over-dependence on dolls or stuffed animals.
    'You see, Susie?! Little Baby Pumpkin Bottom may actually be the
    corporeal embodiment of a child-eating goat-demon!'"

    FOUR FRIENDS (reviewed by George Hatch, overall score 75/100):
    "Yes, the 1960s was the era of 'free love,' but Georgia's love doesn't
    come without cost and consequence to her partners. Halfway through the
    film, I began wondering if screenwriter Steve Tesich intended her to be
    a metaphor for catastrophe, delivering a kiss of death to anyone who
    dared to defy convention and challenge the status quo."

    THE JAZZ SINGER: 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 67/100):
    "Can he reconcile his father's expectations with his new aspirations?
    Can he find a way to make it big and still keep his faith? Can anyone
    explain why this movie is called The Jazz Singer when the man is playing
    soft rock?"

    THE LAST CHAPTER (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 72/100):
    "With its wooden acting, corny production values, and a convoluted plot,
    The Last Chapter is not a good show by North American standards, but it
    does keep you coming back for more, if only out of some twisted sense of
    morbid curiosity. For a Canadian TV miniseries - sadly -- this is as
    good as it gets. Take that any way you will."

    LOVE BITES (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 60/100):
    "You know any hot, non-supernatural French chicks who can replicate
    themselves before having sex? (If you do, let me know.)"

    REDNECK COMEDY ROUNDUP (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score
    70/100):
    "I think this disc is for you if you consider yourself a huge fan of
    these guys and want to own everything they've put out. Because,
    besides from the funny hairstyles some of these dudes had back in the
    day (Ron White takes the cake with his perm), I don't see much allure
    for this DVD."

    SECRETS OF A CALL GIRL (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score
    68/100):
    "I'd say that if you picked any Italian gangster-romance out of a hat,
    it's probably better than Secrets of a Call Girl."

    STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score
    70/100):
    "Title: 10. Movie: 5."

    THUNDERSTRUCK (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 70/100):
    "I know it's Australia, but does everyone have to look like they've been
    slathered with burgundy paint?"

    TIME BANDITS (UMD MINI FOR PSP) (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 74/100):
    "It goes without saying that you should not buy a UMD movie -- any UMD
    movie -- if you have never seen the film before. Go see it on DVD first,
    and decide if you love it enough to purchase a portable version. But for
    Gilliam fans, Time Bandits is your only stop in port, as none of his
    other films are available on UMD at this time."
