|Casual Sex / Cold Comfort Farm|
Casual Sex? — Never have the 1980s felt so painfully time-warped. This 1988 movie, which was directed by Geneviève Roberts and adapted by Wendy Goldman and Judy Toll from their stage play, is proof as to why we've rarely he... more »
Yet another complaint

"I'll add my complaint to the others who find that bundling Cold Comfort Farm with another movie I don't want is stupid!"
Don't put Cold Comfort Farm in a two for one package!

"I have already seen the wonderful gem of a movie, Cold Comfort Farm, but will not order it from Amazon on DVD since it comes only with the stupid movie, Casual Sex. What is Amazon thinking?! Please offer Cold Comfort Farm as a single DVD, since it more than stands alone in quality!"
You guys have it all wrong....

"I can't believe that they packaged Casual Sex? with Cold Comfort Farm. All I want is my own copy of Casual Sex, but I am forced to buy Cold Comfort Farm? Who's even heard of this movie? Please..."
I already have Casual Sex, so two-pack is problematic 4me2.

"I already have CASUAL SEX and sort of partially like it (the movie that is), so that adds me to the list of those somewhat perplexed by this two-pack offer. Since some reviews were written, saying that COLD COMFORT FARM is offered only in this two-pack, it seems now amazon.com has started offering it separately, and that is an improvement. If a (possibly apocryphal) story that I heard is true, this isn't the first time that CASUAL SEX has been inconveniently coupled with another movie. According to the story, a guy went to a video store, hoping to rent CASUAL SEX and also NUTS, the latter starring Barbra Streisand and Richard Dreyfus. He asked the clerk "Do you have NUTS?" She responded, "No." He asked, "Do you have CASUAL SEX?" and she answered, "Not with anyone who had to ask if I have nuts!" Anyhow I've gotten into re-viewing COLD COMFORT FARM, after I saw the recently-released ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. The latter convinced me that Kate Beckinsale (pronounced Kate book-INNS-a-lee) is an actress worthy of a second look. She was captivating in that most successful and faithful big-screen transfer I've seen of that Alice-In-Wonderland sequel. So now that she has name recognition to me, I'm hoping to find COLD COMFORT FARM worth a second look, on her account, especially since I saw one review that called Kate that film's "saving grace". My first viewing of CCF, when it was new, would make me think it NEEDED a "saving grace". It seemed mainly mean-spirited and unfunny to me at the time. But now with Kate Beckinsale to better appreciate and focus on, I may get out of the film what I might have missed then, and see what all the fuss is about. If I do find Kate a "saving grace" to the film, then I can call it worthwhile that amazon seemingly now offers the film separately for those who either already have CASUAL SEX or don't want to."
