About the book:

Film historian and critic Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide 2000 is incredibly extensive, offering summaries and ratings of movies from Aaron Loves Angela to Zuma Beach. Each movie gets a wry comment from Maltin (the 1981 teen sex comedy Private Lessons is summed up as "a mild piece of sleaze") and a rating from "****" to "BOMB." The Movie and Video Guide 2000 is also meticulously updated--Maltin and his editors are careful to note the bit part appearances of actors who later became stars, allowing you to keep an eye peeled for Charlize Theron in Children of the Corn and Ben Affleck in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. If you're looking for that movie that you can't remember the name of but you know Laurence Fishburne was in it, fear not--there's also a star index in the back. The book has several other thoughtful features: a guide to the old wide-screen formats like Panavision and Vistascope; a list of 100 must-see films of the 20th century; and grouped box listings of movies that belong to the same series but don't start with the same word, saving a great deal of flipping around. This book is both a fun browser's read and a valuable helpmate at the video store. --Ali Davis
