I thought that <i>Bowling For Columbine</i> was a double-sided disc (it is MGM, after all). But I got a copy through ebay that was a 2-disc set. Is it legitimate?

It doesn't strike me as a bootleg. It came in a lot of about 10, and all of the rest were Region 1 discs. The artwork is all correct, and it has a chapter insert. Plus, it doesn't have any of those weird soundtracks or subtitle tracks that you usualy see on bootlegs (like Thai).

I just want to resell it (I wanted other ones from the lot, not this one). So did MGM release any 2-disc versions of this DVD?

Yes IIRC they released it in both styles. Can not remember the reason why but there is a thread somewhere on here that talks about it.

I have the 2 disc version...i think :lol: It has been a while since I opened up that DVD.

I was under the impression they were all 2-discs...

Mine is a 2-disc version.

Mine is double-sided single disc.

Well, I'm starting to think that everything is cool. I was 100% sure about the double-sided version (that is the one we got to rent at my BBV). And several of you say you got a 2-disc one, so that sounds good.

Thanks for the help, guys! You're really quick!!

To meet with the demand of people who would buy Bowling for Columbine (mostly after the Oscar speech), MGM produced both DVD-14 discs for the film and two-discs (1 DVD-9 and 1 DVD-5) for the film, mostly since DVD-14s cost more and take more time to produce than a DVD-9 and a DVD-5. I know that if you go into Best Buy, you'll only be able to find the two-disc edition and while every place else will either have the two-disc set or the single disc version.

The 2 disk version comes with a coupon for 25% of any hand gun at at K-Mart.

What's the point you can't buy any ammo there.

I believe rental stores got the one-disc while most retail stores got the two-disc. Of course, I could be wrong.
