Where's the best place to get a copy, any of the major chains?
I know this sounds a little silly but I don't usually buy or rent movies
Thanks

Walmart, 17 and change.

This is only a portion of the boat race. In total there is only 7 minutes of new footage in this vs. the theatrical release... however early rumblings indicated 23 minutes would be in it, including the full 15 minute boat race sequence.

There is pretty solid information in the Vice community that another release will be coming out - likely late next summer, or as a tease to the sequel in 2 years or even to accompany the release of Season 5 (season 3 is in January btw), and that this release will have anywhere from 23 to the entire 40some missing minutes.

Also - Universal only released this on HD, not Blue Ray. It is Universal's first HD DVD release in history, and it looks amazing. The graininess you saw in theatres is all but gone in the night shots, and when viewed on a HD screen - the boat sequence swallows you whole. Absolutely awesome.

Debbie just came home with it. I saw the commercial on TV last Saturday for it, so she called Walmart to see if they had it. Dude said no, she said she just saw the commercial. He said she better watch the commercial again. When it came back on, I told her the dude was right, it said it would be available on Tuesday. When I reminded her of it this evening, she got right up and went to Blockbuster to buy it. She's building the fire in the fireplace, so she doesn't have to get up again until it was over.
