Sex Drive - anyone get the Best Buy 3-discer?

Ran a search but did not find an existing thread about today's release of SEX DRIVE on DVD (and a downgraded Blu-ray, booo!)....

Best Buy has an exclusive 3 disc version of this one, did anyone pick it up? If so, can you detail what is on this extra bonus disc?

Exclusive features include:
The Passion of James and Clark
Fall Out Boy Rocks the Amish
Seth Green: Method Actor featurettes


Glad the 3rd disc wasn't a fancy coaster (I mean digital copy). I watched this on PPV today & now I have to buy it.

Any idea the length of these? If they are just 5-6 minute featurettes, then I'd say it sounds like a waste of a disc....

According to the press release I have:

"Passion of Clark and James" (10:39)
"Seth Green: Method Actor" (4:31)
"Rockin' with Fall Out Boy" (5:35)

These were initially supposed to be Blu-ray exclusives.

I thought it was a funny movie, and I bought the 3-disc.

^Same here. For an extra 2 bucks, why not? Plus, it came with a coupon for $5 off either "Zack & Miri Make A Porno," "Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist," or "Pineapple Express."

Nope. Summit dropped them because of lack of disc space (Blu-ray).

I thought the unrated version was funny.

I saw it through Netflix today, and I personally thought it was one of the better teen sex comedies that I've seen in a long time. I laughed my @$$ off at a few scenes. I wasn't aware that Best Buy had an exclusive 3 disc version, but after seeing the movie, I'll definitely try to pick it up later this week.

Re: Sex Drive - anyone get the Best Buy 3-discer?

Kind of pissed that the main disc for this movie is a flipper, with Unrated on one side, R-Rated on the other side. Disc 2 has nice artwork on it though, and then Disc 3 also has art, but it comes in a paper sleeve.

The slipcover Best Buy had with this had a coupon for $5 off one of three movies attached to it, and although I was very very careful when removing the sticker that included the coupon (it's huge) it tore a huge chunk out of the back of the slipcover, rendering it junk, basically. Oh well.

Re: Sex Drive - anyone get the Best Buy 3-discer?

I picked up the three-disc at a Best Buy that broke street date (yay).

I am somehow shocked that all of this still couldn't fit on one DVD. Seamless branching? Come on. Or I just wish Summit would've used two dual-layer discs with one cut plus some extras on each disc. The three disc set is way too overkill for extras that barely total up more than 45 minutes.

As has been noted, the Unrated cut is a complete lark. While it's 20 minutes longer, it's like around 60 minutes of alternate takes, outtakes, deleted scenes, goofs (mainly naked people greenscreened in).

To my knowledge all versions are flippers (Rated/Unrated). The second disc is just the special features.

Agree. I saw it in theaters and it was really funny, probably my 2nd favorite comedy last year behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Not quite the case sir. The Canadian release has two discs, but the different cuts are on different discs. Disc was the Rated R 1 if I'm not mistaken.

Dammit. I guess I'll be buying this as soon as I find a copy.

Another example of why I HATE being a completist at times.

Re: Sex Drive - anyone get the Best Buy 3-discer?
