We bought the triple-feature DVD primarily for "Frequency" which we really like, but figured the other 2 movies were just a bonus. But after watching the movie "15 Minutes" for just a short time, we had to turn it off. Though this movie back cover warned about the language, it was far worse than we'd heard in a long time. There was hardly a sentence spoken by the main actor that didn't include really foul language & profanity. It was totally unnecessary. It was way beyond bad & it took away from being able to focus on the plot.
We would not recommend this movie or triple feature whatsoever because of including this parti-
cular movie. We turned this DVD back in because of this one movie included & bought "Frequency" as a single DVD-a much better choice.
The text on the front of the case stating this movie is U-571 mixed with Poltergeist is probably the most accurate way to describe this movie. The story involves a conflict between the crew members that leaves one of them dead, and this person's spirit may be what is haunting the boat. It is a creepy movie, and I like the ending.
Should anyone ever be unfortunate enough to break bread with their characters in Dinner For Schmucks, you'd likely commit seppuku with your butter knife before the entres had even been cleared from the table.
The Alaskan Huskies of Eight Below are both better-looking and better performers than their human counterparts, and their vigilant scenes of solo survival on an Antarctic outpost make for the highlight of this otherwise predictable rescue mission.
Unfortunately when the sales associate entered my shipping address, she entered the wrong zip code. I had to call the postal service several times. It eventually arrived, but instead of 7-10 days, it was more like 3-4 weeks. Nevertheless I am very happy with the DVD. I was unable to locate this locally.
No masterpiece but undeniably heavy on laughs, the movie is put over by the buffed, lubricated dynamics of two leads who substantially transcend what is otherwise a borderline tepid dose of family values.
