In your DVD player's set up menu; make sure it is set to 4x3 letterbox.

I had the same problem with my copy I rented last week.

I played it on one player, set for 4x3 and it looked like it was all stretched out. I set my TV for 16x9 mode and it still looked all stretched out.

I then tried it in another player and it looked fine.

I ended up watching it stretched anyway, got used to it after a while. GREAT commentary on the DVD by Jeff Dunham. Better than the movie.

I swear mine is full screen too, even though it says widescreen on the box.
