The whole combo problem is overblown. I had it happen on a few combos ... Bourne Ultimatum, Children of Men, Happy Feet, and just tonight on the copy Eastern Promises I just bought (it didn't work the first time though, so i ran it through the cleaner again and it then it worked). The Optifix did the trick on all those discs, and I haven't had a problem with them since.
Sure, this is a problem that needs to be dealt with in manufacturing, but I wouldnt go running back to the store every time I got a combo that wouldn't play. The Optifix from Memorex hasn't failed me yet.
EDIT: just for kicks I threw Eastern Promises in the player again to see if it still worked. Yup...played immediately.
