My copy was almost unwatchable with all the freezing and breaking up. this led to the audio being out of sinc with the video. I stopped and restarted a couple of times but this did not help. I t started about 1/2 way through the movie and got worse. I do not see any scratch or finger print on the dvd, and this is the first time it has been played. I just bought it from deep discount dvd. the dvd player is denon 4800. thanx to any body that can help me out. this is the first time i had a problem dvd.
