    I bought this just before Christmas and just got around to watching it tonight. Just before the intermission when the camera zooms into show the calender on the desk, the DVD pauses like a layer change, but it takes about 8 seconds and the picture is kind of jumpy. Is this the layer change and is it really this bad or do I have a defective disc?

    Thanks

    I just watched it a couple of weeks ago and I do not remember any such long pause at that point. By the way, I have the original Fox release, not the more recent SE. I understand that the transfer is the same, but not sure of the layer change.

    Kris,

    I do remember noticing the layer change on this disk, which I normally don't notice on my Toshiba player. So I would think it's just an abnormally bad layer change, not a defect or a player problem.
