Warning - Seabiscuit case

I didn't find a mention of this in a search, but there are some new fangled locks on the Seabiscuit keepcase. Two little tabs above and below the opening slot. Just an FYI...

Did you buy it at WalMart??

If so, they have been doing that for a while now. My Star Trek: Nemesis and Bruce Almighty cases (purchased at WalMart) both have them as well...

I got Seabiscuit from BB today though and it did not have them, so I bet it is just another WalMart thing.

Yeah, a bunch of my Walmart discs, especially Universal and Paramount titles have bene like that. But oddly not all of them. Actually are slightly fancier, although also slightly more annoying

This was the first case like this I've seen, and I did also get it at Walmart. And, along with the weird locks, there was this thing called a 'book' attached! It's like a script of the movie only with more detail! What a cool idea!

I got mine at Best Buy and it was the one with the free book added.

Yeah, my copy of "the Core" had those things too. Very annoying.

I don't think the locks are annoying, and I understand their basis. Someone can't simply slash dowing the cleft and open the DVD.

Does it have to do with fat people?
