Defected disc
Verified purchase
Buyers beware
When I opened the case, I noticed absolutely no literature. Nothing but the DVD. This DVD disabled my Blu-ray player. I thought it was my Blu-ray player, I had an issue with it before. This disc would not play, the disc could not eject, and the Blu-ray did not turn off. I disconnected the power, changed the batteries. I call Amazon to inform the company of this defect. Amazon knows I spend $$$$ on my account. I was not after a $12 refund. I called AT&T to check for any issues, I called the cable company to check for any problems and then I called Sony to help me solve this issue. The same answer every time. The disc. I pry the player open with a flat screwdriver. I completely wreck the bluray player, but I figured it served its purpose. Also, I have a backup player I purchased at a very low cost. I try my other Blu-ray player that's a couple of years old. The exact same thing. The player becomes disabled. This time I disconnected all connections on the player. Wait and the disc ejects. I was hesitant about inserting another disc, but all is fine with the player.
I'm purchasing this movie in a bluray format. If this doesn't work, maybe it's meant to be a sign not to watch a movie about a nasty violent divorce

Do not buy from this seller

This dvd will not play. I loaded it and it just sat there. Could not eject the disc. It froze everything up in the Blu Ray Player. I had to unplug the player, plug it back in and constantly hit eject until it finally came out. I wasted money on this crap. This is the first one star review I have had to give on this site......that should tell you something there, seller.

Like several other people's situation, this DVD killed my Blu Ray player!😡 Called tech support, tried everything but I also ended up having to pry apart my player to get the diseased disc out! Before this, it worked perfectly fine! I really think if Amazon is going to carry and sell merchandise that is beyond defective, they need to reimburse for damages! See

Ordered the first one The War Of The Roses Special Edition, wouldn't play and almost broke my DVD player could not get the thing out. Received another one at on cost to us, guess what it doesn't play either. Like to never got it to let go of the DVD player it wasn't going to turn loose. Thought it was really tore up with the second DVD. Will be sending it back , too.

WARNING Terrible Disc
Verified purchase
When I inserted the disc, it froze my Blu-ray player! I finally took the player apart and got the disc out. I mistakenly inserted the disc into a new, fresh out of the box, player and it froze again!! This disc is defective and will ruin your Blu-ray players. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS DISC, I just wish Amazon would take this off the available listing as I now see others have had the same problem. I am returning my player with the disc lodged inside!

Add on: I finally got the disc out so I didn't need to return the player as it was not the problem.

Won’t play
Verified purchase
This is the second time I’ve ordered this movie and it won’t play. The screen just goes blank. I’d really like to get this movie, but I’m really leary about buying it again. There’s no place for a zero stars, so I have to give it a “1”

Buyer Beware
Verified purchase
This Dvd screwed up my Blu-ray player as another reviewer mentioned. I had to disconnect the player in order to remove the disk. Unfortunately I purchased this when moving and just tried to watch it and its past the return time. VERY DISSAPOINTED!

every married couple!
Verified purchase
This movie may be kinda funny but it conveys deep truths about the probabilities and tendencies of annihilating each other in marriage. Once one has not reached the stage of allowing one's desires and tastes to be shaped by the other partner (and vice versa), there'll always be a further episode to the war of the roses. Once an issue begins, the movie teaches that it has to be discussed thoroughly, understood by both parties and resolved as soon as possible before it assumes unpleasant dimensions. The ripple effects of an atmosphere devoid of compromise and forgiveness are unavoidable:no intimacy, lack of trust, apathy and insensitivity to each other's feelings, family breakdown and ultimate destruction. A movie every married couple should watch at one point or another in their marriage life, probably at the beginning of their marriage.
