Freaky Friday--Anyone have problems with it--Menu particularly???

BTW, just so you know, the copy of this I got was on Amazon, and I got it relatively cheap ($11.25), but it has a DTS track unlike most of the copies I've seen.
But the menu cursor doesn't seem to work on this copy--It just has the two ladies switching clothes when you somehow get the fortune cookie to change. So far that's about all I've been able to get, and when I do get something else, it's the audio options. I can't access the deleted scenes or the documentaries.
I did see a little of the movie on the disc, and the transfer looks very disappointing.

It has a DTS track? The legitimate Region 1 release has no DTS track. I don't know about the Canadian edition(s), but I have the US edition and there is no DTS. And it played and worked fine.

I wouldn't expect to see bootlegs of a movie like this, but there you go....

If you picked this up from the Amazon Marketplace then it sounds like it would be a bootleg. AFAIK the (legit) R1 release doesn't have DTS. And I doubt amazon.com is selling it that cheap through the real amazon store.

Should've known.

This copy also has a black trim on its case instead of white like the legit copies, and this copy also doesn't feature the rock videos that are on the legit one.

Well, that sucks. Complain to the seller see if you can get your money back (highly doubtful) and complain to Amazon get the seller kicked out of the marketplace (probably doubtful too).

Is this the listing:
Seller: bbbilliyum (Safe buying guarantee)
Rating: 3.2 stars over the past twelve months (6 ratings). Seller has 6 lifetime ratings.
Availability: Item usually ships in 1-2 business days; Ships from CA, United States; Expedited shipping available. International shipping available.
See shipping rates
Comments: --SEALED -New- never viewed-IMPORTED DVD -Region 1 NTSC -DIGITAL SURROUND SOUND - DTS - -1 Disc -No Chapter Insert -Widescreen -DVD Case, Cover Art (slighty different), and DVD
If so, look at his most recent feedback:
1 out of 5 : "The seller did not respond to me because the product I bought was a copy. The product was shipped on time. However the package appearance was different from the original in the store. Don't buy again"
Rated by Buyer: abeards
If it is a bootleg, you should blast this seller on Amazon feedback (unless you are abeards) and contact Amazon.com immediately. I believe this may be covered under Amazon's buyer guarantee:

Amazon A-to-Z Protection Program:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/browse/-/537868

And in the future, read the description and seller feedback carefully! Good luck.
