Scarface sold out ALL across South Miami,FL

I've been to Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.. ALL sold out of Scarface, and all sold out within hours of store openings.. I ended up just buying it now on circuitcity.com for 17.11 shipped. Unreal I tell ya!

Damn.

I guess my chances of finding it in Hialeah/Miami Lakes are slim to none, eh?

I was hoping to pick up the box set.

The people at Best Buy today said it was OUTSELLING 2 Fast 2 Furious by a huge margin. There was a ton of pent up demand, and the bootlegs didn't keep people away!!

I never cared for the film, but I am going to buy it in case I ever get to be on Cribs.

If Scarface is outselling 2 Fast 2 Furious, then I guess Scarface must be one of those greater than great movies.

I mean, if it's outselling 2 Fast 2 Furious (the obviously stellar cast and musical score of 2F2F was just amazing--comparible to Rogers & Hammerstein's greatest musical achievements even), and was taken over by the simple cast of an 80's movie Scarface and Gorgio Moroder's score, then the people at Best Buy really do have a knowledge and 6th sense of acting talent, I can only hope to grasp when I watch movies.

I know there were a ton at the Walmart I was at, but it will be interesting to see how this sells. catalog titles that aren't Disney usually don't seem to sell very well. What's the power of cribs?

I think it's pretty evident how cribs has influenced this. The more I think about it.. I'm not that surprised.. I mean.. I do live in Miami, FL.. where Scarface takes place

I'd say it's selling out everywhere. Luckily I preordered mine on the net so I made sure that I would get a copy this week. I know for a fact that our local Circuit City sold out today by 5 pm. And that is in little Johnson City, TN not Miami, FL. So I'd say it's like that all over.

It's sold out on circuitcity.com & my local Circuit City. The place was littered with copies of 2F2F, however.

Rice = Mods that are more for show than performance. IE a metal spoilers, stickers all over the place, euro lenses, Type R badges on a non Type R vehicle....

My local BB had tons of Scarface for sale

Was sold out this evening at my Best Buy. It was a sad, huge, empty display. I trotted over to Costco where they had about 8 copies. Upon further inspection they were fullscreen. I luckily found the lone widescreen copy left. Had to wait behind people with a billion items but it was worth it.

Good riddance.

Now maybe there'll be room on the shelves for a decent movie.

I see, when I read 'rice' I immediately thought this was an Asian stereotype slang. I've heard the term 'rice' brought up before when talking about Hondas. Its just an odd coincidence.

Great, now everyone can carry around a wad of food stamps in their "TM" money clip from the box set.

Anyone else hear that the #1 DVD to be bought along with Scarface was Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman Season 2?
