GET SMART (2008) Shoe Phone Case dvd

Okay although we all know this is getting a November 6 release date here in America, what I want to know is how many besides Australia and Thailand are making this nifty 2-Disc "Get Smart" Shoe Phone DVD edition available??

Here's a picture of the Region 4 Aussie Edition:



As far as I know there will not be a Region 1 of this unique set.

I just purchased my "Get Smart" shoe-phone set from Best Buy. Not a bad little package. The most surprising thing about this set is how large the phone is when unfolded, about a foot long!!! The rotary dial on this even works and makes an interesting "rotary" sound when spun. I have yet to watch the two discs (never did see this in the cinema) but look forward to watching this re-take on the sixties series featuring Don Adams. I'm glad Best Buy had this one so that I didn't have to order this one from some overseas retailer.

How many of you have bought this shoe phone dvd? I haven't seen this movie yet so I don't know if it a good movie to keep or not. But I want to buy it because of the cool shoe phone case.

I heard the bestbuy exclusive comes with the complete TV series. Isn't it?

The movie is pretty good (just watched it last night) but not as funny as the t.v. series. I'm assuming that last line in your message was a joke. Yeah, right! The whole t.v. series on two discs. Sorry but it's only the movie and some extra features.

Has anyone been able to actually find this in a Best Buy?

They are non-existent in every BB near me. Of course, I made the mistake of trying to ask an employee who had no idea what I was talking about and told me to "go online" (this must be their default mode).

There were none on the new release wall at my Best Buy, they were all tucked away in the comedy section.

Don't believe burnside986. It is not a real working phone...although the rotary dial does turn and makes a nifty mechanical sound. Some people need to "Get Smart" about what this phone does and doesn't do!!!
