Thanks for the heads up. I placed an order at the $31.99 price. It is probably 50/50 if I ever receive anything.

I have very slim hopes considering they out and out canceled my earlier order on May 14th, but hey worth a shot

I'd say it's more like 1/99 in favor of you NOT getting it. But it's worth a shot I guess.

Has anyone tried to order this at Borders lately? Bordersstores.com shows this as still "in print" and available to "order" in store (though none of my local stores has it in stock). If they can find another location that does have one, they can have it shipped to your local store AFAIK.

Borders is where I bought mine more than a year ago, maybe someone else will have some luck.

Back in stock at Amazon, $25.99. It's been going up and down lately, but not disappearing. Mines set to ship in June, i re-order (after a cancellation) a week ago or so.

Ordered one through Amazon. I would be surprised if it actually shows up.

i had originally ordered it at this price, then amazon cancelled it within a day, saying they could not get more stock, blah blah, blah...then it "became available" at 27.99 again so i re-ordered. now its back to 25.99. so i cancel the order for 27.99 myself and re-order at the price i originally had purchased the first time! amazon should get their act together - either you have/will get the dvd or not but stop dicking around with the price.

I tried to do this as well (I re-ordered when it was $31.99, and it dropped to $27.99). But when I re-ordered, the shipping date was like a month later, so I had them adjust my original order (which I hadn't canceled). I also just got an adjustment on the order for the $25.99 price. I have a delivery estimate of June 18th-July 2.

i wish they could have just re-instated my original order from 5/11 (i never asked anyway), i might have the friggin' thing already lol i understand if they don't have anymore in stock but i don't mind waiting. i lost my place on the queue and my delivery date is late july to AUGUST! they cancelled my original order WAY too quick.

They have my shipping estimate at 6/15 and delivery 6/19. I do have Prime 2-day shipping so thats a little discouraging, but up until now they had a range of dates, (11th-15h? or something like that) for each, not a specific date so maybe thats a positive.

Sounds better than my 6/18 to 7/2 delivery estimates with super saver shipping.

I'm hoping it ships so I can pricematch down to 25.99.

They will adjust the price before it ships, refundplease.com walked me through the steps

They will indeed adjust before shipping, I've already done it twice with this movie (also have the June 18 estimate).

A better site than refundplease is priceprotectr. It can track just about any site that offers a 30 day guarantee (although I must admit I've really only used it for amazon).

Mine arrived today in a reallly annoying box, but once I got it opened it was worth it. Made this bad day a little better.

And they say size doesn't matter

Thanks man, it actually means a lot. I had a pretty crumby day today, in large part from worrying about this, because I am apparently insane. I have no idea why it got to me so. But thanks.

Well, it's 4:38 AM and I'm about to go to sleep. Hopefully in a few hours when I wake up I will have an e-mail from Amazon saying it has shipped as today is the day it says on my estimate

Mine arrived. The shipping box truly is annoying to open. Pretty cool that it is finally here. Weird feeling now that the hunt is over.

Same thing here! I had to re-order on June 1st after they cancelled my first order. A couple days ago the delivery date was set for July at the earliest but I happened to see my credit card get charged by Amazon a day or 2 ago and lo and behold the order has now shipped. Pretty cool. I see eBay prices are practically under $30 for this thing now too. Has it officially gone back into print or was there some kind of warehouse find? If it's in print probably not too long until it's in a $12.99 sale at Best Buy and we'll regret this whole order.
