Will this be available online or is it strictly an in-store thing? I don't live anywhere near a Wal-Mart.

I imagine you already searched their website. If it is not there now, check on or closer to release day.

It isn't a sticker. It's part of the printed cover.

I just noticed that DVD is full screen. For one, I can't believe they still make full screen DVDs, and two the words are very, very small. I predict some bitching on this forum come Tuesday afternoon.

^I just hope Walmart also offers Widescreen. I don't know if they've changed but there was a time when they only offered Fullscreen versions of certain films.

It would actually be appropriate in the parody sort of way if wally only had foolscreen versions of this film.

Yeah, I checked. I don't have any experience with Wal-Mart, so thanks for the tip.

They usually offer both on release week, and for a week (or two, or three depending on sales) after. Then they scale back to fullscreen, because it "sells better" (mostly because they give it prominent placement on top of the shelves and send more copies of it, so people who wouldn't give a crap grab FS regardless, and WS disappears quickly)

I'm glad I don't live where you guys do. Walmart out here always seems to offer a completely even selection of widescreen and fullscreen. On new stock, typically the widescreen sells out first, but they eventually order more in.

That's standard operating procedure for Universal these days. You really have to be careful when buying a Universal disc that has seperate releases that you're picking up the screen format you want.

I usually hate going into Walmart for movies but I think I might have to for this release.

Weird; I worked at two walmarts and have visited tons more, I've never seen one that didn't have the procedure mentioned...(and non-new releases were ALWAYS FS unless they didn't come in FS)

You won't be a member for long if you continue to suggest that people break the law.

With all this complaining about the size of the version font, I'll chime in and say I like not having a huge "widescreen" banner on some dvds, now the quotes and sticker thing...

The last time Walmart had an exclusive bonus disc I wanted packaged with the fullscreen version I took it home and separated the two (being careful not to break the seal on the movie disc), held onto the bonus disc, and took the movie back to the store to exchange it for widescreen. This only works if the cases are individually sealed within the 2-pack, but they usually are.

I already have the UK set, though, so I won't have to bother with that dance this time.

So kind of buy one.

In the meantime, the HD-DVD release is supposed to be a combo disc.

It would have been really nice of Universal to include a special version of the standard DVD on the combo disc with the four commentaries. Then we could get all the bonus features in R1.

Anyone know if this two-pack will also be available at Wal*Mart Canada? If so, I'll get it over the Best Buy exclusive.

With the bulk of the extra features (and the extra commentaries only showing up on the HD side). And what's up with these combo discs anyway? I thought that the DVD side was always just one layer - or have they started making them with two layers yet? A one layer standard DVD side would suck.
