Catch Me If You Can - No chapter listings on insert?

I noticed that the insert for this DVD doesn't have the chapter listing on it. It's only the cover art and the ads for other Dreamworks titles on the other side. Is this a chapter-less DVD (I haven't watched it yet) or is this a new practice? I never look at the chapter list anyway, but I never saw an insert like this before.

It's got chapters, but they're just not listed on the insert. Pretty lame, if you ask me. Universal (?) didn't even include an insert with their Focus Features release Far From Heaven. I think other Dreamworks dvds are similar, but I'm not sure which ones.

I wouldn't mind having no insert with the chapters listed on the back (like Lion's Gate does), but having an insert with no chapter list on it just seems like a waste of paper.

It is kinda weird. I'm assuming now that they only put it in there for the ad of their other titles, but then again they always had those ads and the chapters as well. Maybe they should just adopt those clear keepcases and print the chapter listings on the other side of the cover. Saves paper and leaves a nice clean look. I usually like an insert in the keepcase just to give a little color when you open the case, compared to the cheapy, looks-like-a-bootleg insertless case.

Who cares? Do you actually pull out the insert and hold the list of chapters up when you're selecting a scene? They have the chapter list on the screen! What does it matter if they have a printed version or not?

Um, if you bothered to read my post you would see that I don't use them, but I do know people who want to demo a scene and reference the printer chapter listing and directly enter it with the remote instead of going through the menus. But thank you for your concern.
