Watching this thing, you can’t help wondering what director Anne Goursaud, writer Chloe King and the producers thought they were doing.

The theory behind putting them out on separate disks is, presumably, that interested persons under the age of 17 can watch the R-rated version with parental supervision (feel free to write in if anyone of your acquaintance knows of instances where this has actually happened). However, apart from students of MPAA thinking, are there really people who are going to watch the R-rated version, thinking, "Yes, I’ve just rented/purchased this film with strong sexual content, but there’s only so strong I can stand ...

title: Coma function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Warner Bros. Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Genevieve Bujold, Michael Douglas, Richard Widmark, Elizabeth Ashley, Rip Torn, Lois Chiles release year: 1978 film rating: Three and a half stars sound/picture: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Michael Crichton seems determined to show he can do almost everything a writer-director can do, if not expertly, at least professionally. He's written novels and adapted them for the screen; he's written original screenplays. He's directed scripts he wrote, and scripts other people wrote; he's directed scripts based on his own books and, as here, based on novels by other people. You'd have a hard time finding another figure in movie history with that particular set of accomplishments. And he usually does it all quite well -- sometimes, as with COMA, even better than that.

title: Goodbye Lover function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Patricia Arquette, Dermot Mulroney, Ellen DeGeneres, Don Johnson release year: 1999 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Although the standard saying has it that the postman always rings twice, the metaphorical mail carrier just about jams the bell through the doorframe in ‘Goodbye Lover.’ It’s hard to calculate which is more surprising in this sexy film noir: the maze of plot twists or the wickedly engaging sense of humor.

title: The Hound Of The Baskervilles function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Image Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Ian Richardson, Donald Churchill, Martin Shaw, Nicholas Clay, Denholm Elliott, Edward Judd, Glynis Barber, Brian Blessed. release year: 1983 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Producer Sy Weintraub hoped to launch a Sherlock Holmes series starring Ian Richardson with this and its sister production of THE SIGN OF FOUR, but the TV movies were poorly marketed in the United States. It wasn't until Jeremy Brett starred as Holmes in the series shown in the U.S. on PBS' "Mystery" that the great detective really caught on again.
