Don't get me wrong -- i love this movie. That's why I hate what the editors have chosen to do the the DVD version. I've owned a VHS copy of this movie for several years and I am very familiar with the flow of the movie. The DVD version has cut several scenes -- including all of the Mandy Rice-Davies/Peter Brackman relationship (no shots of Ms. Fonda in her see-thru nighty ), the scene between Christine and the nightclub owner (when has asks for oral sex) and the beginning of the movie where Christine is leaving the courtroom is gone. If you have never seens this movie, this version is o.k., but if you loved the original the way I do, you will be very disappointed with this cut-up version. Please e-mail me if you find an uncut version out there -- I will take it on either DVD or VHS.
