Just a FYI Squeeken, but if you are thinking of buying AnyDVD or any Slysoft product, you should be aware their free updates for the life of the product is going away Jan 1, 2009. If you have bought a valid key before then, they will grandfather you in to get free updates, but if you buy after Dec 31st, it is a subscription model, with payments yearly, like DVDFab is now. Thought you might like to know if you missed it at their site.
I like AnyDVD cause it can be used in conjunction with other programs like DVDShrink. I use the built in ripper on movies that have a lot of junk thrown in to prevent copying though.
Good luck, and let us know how you get on with this movie.
