Will Walmart carry Jackass?

I know Wally World likes to be goodie goodie and not offend their "core" market..

So do you think they will carry Jackass the Movie?

I have a WM less than 1mile from my house which I use to PM BB's prices on release day. But it will suck if I have to drive 30minutes to the BM BB to pick this movie up.

Thanks

I am getting tired of Wal-mart. They are all becoming like K-mart. Lousy selection, dirty isles, and no one speaks any English in the DVD dept. If I have to go to a Walmart, I drive 15 miles to another town to go to a decent one.

I'm lucky my WM is "clean" but the others just a couple towns over look like shite!

trust me it's only a matter of time before Khols, WM, Target, etc. become the next K-Mart, Jamesway, and Ames.

All these stores go through their own "life cycle" And shoppers are fickle. I hate WM - b/c they limit the DVD's they carry to the point of only carying "non-objectionable" material, full screen movies, etc...

In addition, their food section only looks like the buyer is from the "mid-west"

I go down the pasta isle and there is only Ronzoni, Ragu, and Prego. At my local Shoprite - they have tons of macaroni, and pasta by diff manufacturers and tons of sauce. (I make my own)

But still, their problem is that they try to be everything to everybody, and they can't !

Irony.

Walmart will not sell a film called "Jackass", but will shamelessly hawk tons of NASCar merchandise.

If they can carry the obviously unrated DVD of "Last On The Left" (Saw it with my very own eyes), then they sure as hell better carry "Jackass". What exactly is their process for dictating what's "objectionable" to them anyway? Bunch of hypocritical bastards they are.

By the way, if you really like Jackass: The Movie, you can also get Jackass, Volumes 2 & 3 (there is no Volume 1), and Steve O has his own DVD called "Steve O. Don't Try This At Home" (all available on DVD, and available for rent at my local video store (not Blockbuster)).

I don't know about in the US, but Walmart locally in Canada carries the other Jackass DVDs that are out, so I can't see why they wouldn't carry the theatrical release...

Wal-Mart won't be carrying it. Try getting it at Best Buy for $14.99 and get CKY 4 while you're at it. I've had CKY 4 for a few weeks and have watched it at least 4 times already. Love the skeletor video!

The only connection between Jackass and Nascar I can think of is the white trash thing. Not that everyone who likes Nascar or likes Jackass is white trash, but its at least part of the core audience.
