I used to love the movie but it didn't age well last time I watched it.

I may give it another go.

It would be neat to see how Johnny Drama would've done in this, if he hadn't passed it up for that 3-episode arc on 90210.

I noticed that Amazon.com have pre-orders (no release date given) for not only this title but also She's The One. Does anyone know whether this is also going to be a BB exclusive?

Yes, it is listed on their site as a BB exclusive ($14.99 as well).

Guaranteed this will be low sales movie. And I can't justify getting it for more than 10$.

I really like Edward Burns. But I saw this last at around 2000

It's an alright film. I like it enough where I'm willing to upgrade my DVD, but not for $15...

EXACTLY.

That stupid notion of High Definition being equal to glossy and polished must be discarded once and for all.

Consumers who care about movies have to understand that a good transfer should not look "nice", but as faithful as possible to the source materials.

Thank you so much for trying to get that across on your review.

Hopefully someone who knows can sort this out. I was thinking about picking this up from ImportCDs because they have it pretty cheap + a 10% off code, but made sure I couldn't get it cheaper somewhere else. The thing is, Amazon has 2 listings. The one blu-ray.com links to is $27 and supposedly is the Signature Series as that is the only one listed in the database, and indeed, putting the UPC in gets you that link (though the cover shown is not the same). However, Amazon has another one specifically identified as "Filmmaker Signature Series" and is much cheaper. I see no evidence that it's the Canadian version (the UPC for that doesn't bring it up and it doesn't say IMPORT anywhere); if it is, is there any difference?
In 2007, I bought a PS3 for 4 specific titles; in 2014, half of them haven't been released yet.

Forget the Amazon entries - now you've got me curious about the resellers that have them for ten bucks...what to do, what to do...

Dunno why Amazon doesn't have a picture of the cover art since Best Buy is no longer the exclusive distributor of this series.

Someone is selling it for $6.92 (inventory = 1).

I emailed Amazon with the question; I'll update when they get back to me.

Dude, this is the right link:

http://www.amazon.com/Brothers-McMul...thers+mcmullen

The other one is clearly a mistake, especially since Amazon is taking "pre-orders" for it.

Since someone is selling it for $7, after $3 for shipping, it's only $10, which is cheaper than Import CDs.

This is the response I got:
Quote:
The format for the The Brothers McMullen (Filmmaker Signature Series) is DTS Surround Sound whereas the format of The Brothers McMullen is not DTS Surround Sound.

The information on our website is all the information we have about a particular product.

Our inventory is stored in multiple fulfillment centers, and we don't know ahead of time which fulfillment center your order will ship from. Our Customer Service centers are separate from our fulfillment centers; unfortunately don't have a way to check the item details for you.
It's pretty apparent they completely ignored what I wrote to them.
