I'm 14 and I've just seen The Exorcist at the cinema. (Naughty — Ed). I'm wondering what all the fuss was about. I, along with most of the adult audience, laughed at the "shocking" parts. Although it was a great film, it did not live up to the hype. I can see why this was considered extremely frightening and disturbing 25 years ago, but morals and attitudes have changed.

It is clearly incorrect as regards the Exorcist video. It was available until 1984, when it was banned during the purge of the so-called video nasties like Driller Killer. Our local social club hired it and Exorcist II — The Heretic from the local store in 1982 for a horror evening.

I heard The Odd Couple has a sequel out next month. How does it compare with the first one and should I spend £6 going to see it? R Ambrose, Canterbury We're delighted to say it compares pretty well. The screenplay is again by Neil Simon and the gags come thick and fast. Lemmon and Matthau are total pros and we recommend it.
