Just Married -- "Buy the DVD or RENT the video tonight.." ?!?

Saw the commercial for this flick last nite. At the end, the announcer says "Buy the DVD or RENT the video tonight" which brings me to my question...

Are they still pricing movies for rental only?

I can't see someone actually paying $90+ for this flick..

The Rental Window on Video's are still around. It's just that the rental companies didn't get it on dvd so they are $#$ out of luck

From the Amazon link: "But if you love it, and want it now, we want you to have it. Enjoy!"

If you love it and want it now BUY A DVD PLAYER ALREADY!! The player is cheaper than the video. Duh.

I wonder how many people they'll find hanging from shower rods next week with suicide notes reading "I paid over $100 for 'Just Married' on VHS, and then watched it."

Seriously, I dread the day some studio decides to pull this trick on DVD in the US. I would assume it wouldn't get them far.

Haha, what a joke. Hopefully not too many people are still buying that crap anyway. To be honest, if you look around you can get a dvd player and the Just Married dvd for half or less than half the price of the VHS tape.

Well, of course it's an option. So is waiting until it shows up on cable. So is skipping it entirely.

But the studio is going to make a sh|tload more money if you buy it. So obviously that's what they're going to encourage.

Well, I'm pretty sure only video stores would be buying the video at that price. There have been only a couple videos that I heard about,where people who couldn't wait until sell through were willing to pay the approx $100.00 rental price (Pulp Fiction and Schindlers List come to mind).

No one is seriously expected to purchase at the rental cost. Even the video stores pay only $65 or so for it (give or take-been a while since I knew someone in the biz).

If you really want to see this garbage you can go to BBV tonight or tomorrow night and get a rain check since it is guaranteed in stock. I saw it in the theater with my GF, and would have walked out if she wasn't with me. My store did not receive many copies and has been giving out rain checks all week.
