The folks at Paramount continue relentlessly forward with their "I Love the 80's" series of repackaged material. Their second wave of DVD releases includes "Ordinary People." All of these re-releases appear to be identical to the discs Paramount issued a few years earlier, only this time they get slightly different artwork, new slipcovers, and a *bonus CD* of "Music from the 80's" that contains "Lips Like Sugar" by Echo & the Bunnymen, "Chains of Love" by Erasure, "Need You Tonight" by INXS, and "Take on Me" by a-ha. Obviously, the studio brass do not intend these reissues for people who already own the movies on disc; they mean them for new buyers who need that extra incentive to purchase them. Since, so far, they're all good movies in pretty decent shape, you can't go wrong. John J. Puccio

"The second disc is not even a DVD; it is a CD containing music by Echo & the Bunnymen, Erasure, INXS and a-ha. It is the same disc included on other "I love the 80's" DVDs. It has nothing to do with the movie. It is a total rip-off -- Totally misleading advertising. You get nothing on this set that was not included in prior editions of Ordinary People."
What is so special?

"Whats is so "special" about this special edition? Can someone tell me why it features two disks? As far as I know, Redford has never consented to do a director's commentary on the film and there are no "making of" documentaries in existence. What are they selling here?"
