Free Enterprise R2??

I would like to get this movie, but the disc is so expensive in the US. I've noticed the R2 disc for sale at bensonworld for a much better price, but they don't have any features listed. Amazon.co.uk likewise doesn't list any features.
however, there have been a couple of auctions on ebay that list the following features for this disc, which seem to match the R1 except for being anamorphic:
16x9 Version – Exclusive to UK Edition
Trailer 2x
TV Spots
Writer/Director & Editor Commentary
Deleted Scenes
Making of Featurette
Screen Tests
‘No Tears for Caeser’ Music Video
Biographies/Filmographies
Production Notes
Phrase Glossary

However, bensonsworld replied back to my inquiry stating that the R2 is NOT anamorphic.
Does anyone know what is actually on the R2 disc?

edit-----------------------
This is what dvdtimes.co.uk has to say about the R2:
The DVD release looks like it could be pretty special - it features a 16x9 anamorphic transfer, DD2.0 sound and is due on 13 November with the following extra features:
Trailer
2 TV Spots
Writer/Director & Editor Audio Commentary
30 minutes of Deleted Scenes
60 minute Making of Featurette
15 minutes of Screen Tests
"No Tears for Caesar' Music Video
Main Cast & Crew Biographies and Filmographies with full screen motionclips - Exclusive to UK Edition
Production Notes - Exclusive to UK Edition
Ebionics - Glossary of Free Enterprise phrases
Is this the disc that bensonsworld is selling?

The R2 of Free Enterprise IS Anamorphic. It has everything the US version has except the trivia subtitle track.

You might want to check this info out: http://www.dvdcompare.org.uk/compari...e.php?fid=1195

Apparently there might be problems with the R2 audio.

thanks for that link. I didn't know about that site.
Can anyone confirm the lip synch problem with the R2 audio? If there doesn't seem to be a problem, I feel much better getting that version.

I have watched mine and noticed no lip synch problem. I have an Apex AD-3201.

If the R2 release is cheaper for you, then go for it. That being said, the transfer is pretty decent for a non-anamorphic release. I wouldn't upgrade just for an anamorphic transfer on this one.
