Who says romance is dead? This week, two unconventional love stories that didn’t exactly woo audiences on the first go-round get another shot: The box office disappointments Heart and Souls ($16.4 million domestic gross) and True Romance ($11.4 million) make their debuts in the video top 10. (This, after such summer blockbusters as The Firm, Rising Sun, and Dave have been enjoying second honeymoons with viewers.) Meanwhile, persnickety videophiles may flip for the just-released letterboxed laserdisc of the reincarnation comedy Heart and Souls (with its digital soundtrack and copious chapter stops) or the nifty wide-screen disc edition of the shoot-’em-up True Romance (an unrated director’s cut that includes two extra minutes of ultraviolent footage).
