Old School Unrated at Blockbuster!!!! No kidding!

I went to Hollywood video to rent Old School and F13 pt.5. They didn't have F13 and they didn't have Old School Unrated, rated R only.

I headed for Blockbuster to get F13 and was shocked to find they had the unrated Old School! Every copy from DVD to VHS was the unrated version!

I asked the guy at the counter about this and he said, with a straight face, "we've always carried unrated". I just had to chuckle and leave with my amazing find.

What next? Widescreen instead of Full?? It boggles the mind.

They have been doing this for awhile. I remember specifically that American Pie 2 was the unrated cut at most Blockbusters

Yep, BB has been doing this for awhile. I'm surprised you didn't find the unrated version at Hollywood though. I've only seen the unrated version at my local Hollywood.

Well, it was the first time I'd been in a Blockbuster in over a year. It was news to me.
