    Right at the layer switch near the end of Chapter 12, it completely locks my DVD players. Also if I try to start the movie from chapter 13, 14, etc., it just locks. This is on the WIDESCREEN side of the disc. I had to finish watching the movie in PAN N SCAN!

    Anyone else noticed this? The disc looked perfectly clean to me...

    No, must be your old sucky players. [​IMG]

    Of course it can't be a bad disc though, nooo, it's your sucky old players.

    So just exchange it. Or was it a rental? Maybe scratched severely.

    Nah, one's really old Panasonic A110, the other is a new JVC player. Froze at the same spot. Must have been a disc glitch. Time for a refund.

    I rented this from Netflix a few weeks ago and had no problems playing the widescreen version on my antique Toshiba SD-2109.

    It's a DVD-18. These give some players problems for some reason.

    My copy did the same thing. Had to finish on P&Scam side as well.

    After replacing disc it was fine.

    Just another one of DVD's unadvertised features, I guess.
