DEAD! "Back to School sale" @ DDD

DEAD! They've changed the sale to horror titles now (which, for some, might be what back to school is all about, I suppose...)

How could they have a " Back to School " sale and NOT have Dangerfield's Back To School apart of the sale ?

For anyone thinking of A Little Princess. DDD offers a 2-pack with that and The Secret Garden for $8.11 (A Little Princess is $6.48 alone).

Some decent prices on lots of things I have absolutely no interest in owning - my wallet is safe!

So ... parents are meant to buy these "back to school" DVDs so that they can distract them from doing their homework?

A lot of those titles (Free Willy, Shiloh, Funky Monkey, etc) I saw @ Sams last night - could have sworn that they were $4.88 there?

Some great movies - but most of them are available on double feature DVDs for a few bucks more than the price of 1. Like Shiloh/Shiloh 2 is $9, Dennis the Menace 1 & 2 is like $8, and I'd purchased Little Princess/Secret Garden a while back in a sale for cheap. So if you're getting more than 1, it might be best to go the double feature route.

According to the site, P&S version of at least Secret Garden in that 2-pack. There was an earlier version of the 2-pack (with a different cover) that had Widescreen/P&S flippers for each.

Um, kids aren't the only ones that go to school.

Oh that is sick! She's only 11!

Um, that link above takes you to some really cheesy horror dvds. It reminds me of my local Blockbuster rack.
