Been to do our weekly shop at Morrisons today and purchased this DVD. A really good thriller!

Another John Grisham legal thriller comes to the screen, pairing Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts in a film directed by Alan J Pakula, who is known for dark-hued suspense pictures such as Klute, The Parallax View, All the President's Men, and Presumed Innocent. The Pelican Brief isn't up to the level of those films, but it is a perfectly entertaining movie about a law student (Roberts) whose life is endangered when she discovers evidence of a conspiracy behind the killings of two Supreme Court justices. She enlists the help of an investigative reporter (Washington) and the two become fugitives. The charisma and chemistry of the leads goes a long way toward compensating for the story's shortcomings, as does a truly impressive supporting cast that includes Sam Shepard, John Heard, James B Sikking, Tony Goldwyn, Stanley Tucci, Hume Cronyn, John Lithgow, William Atherton and Robert Culp. --Jim Emerson

What do you mean by a flipper? The one that I've got is sealed and in a normal proper DVD case!

means you have to turn the dvd over half way

A flipper is a DVD where at the midway point you have to eject the disc out and flip it over to see the second half of the film.

That's very strange I've never known anything like that! All the DVD's in my collection play on the one side apart from those that give you the choice of watching in normal screen or widescreen mode.

a time to kill and goodfellas are also flip over films

But the 2-disc of Goodfellas fixes that issue. Ben-Hur (single), but more to length than anything.
