    I'm with you on those, Dennis. Its funny, but Jerry Lewis films are one of those things that people seem to feel strongly about one way or another. To me, they always seemd like one-joke humor. To others (like the French and certain individuals at the HTF), the man is a genius.

    Like my friend always reminds me whenever we disagree on something, "that's why they still make both chocolate and vanilla".

    Anyone been to Best Buy yet today? I'm curious about their price on the That's Entertainment Collection--wondering if the bb.com price holds up or is lower in-store.

    I'm figuring I'll start there 'cuz I want to pick up The Day After Tomorrow to get the bonus disc. Might end up checking BJ's wholesale Club, too for TE.

    Best Buy had the That's Entertainment collection for $50.99. Circuit City didn't have it at all. What a shock. They did have the first TE for $14.99; didn't see any single discs at Best Buy.

    $50.99?!?! [​IMG] I've seen the TE Collection for $49.99 at an FYE...with the individual discs each marked $14.99! If BB can't do better than an FYE price, there's something VERY wrong.

    Thanks, Jeff, for the info!

    I would consider getting the individual movies over time to spread out the $$$ pain, but I figured the fourth bonus disc would be worth it. And, if the set could be gotten for the $34.99 price posted at some of the on-line vendors, the fourth disc is basically free.

    **Quick follow-up**

    Costco actuals for store #390 in Livonia, MI:

    That's Entertainment Box Set: $32.99
    Jerry Lewis Collection titles: $8.79 each

    They seemed to have most of the Jerry Lewis titles in stock, too.

    Just a follow up on my question before about the BB bonus disc for The Day After Tomorrow.

    Looks like it might be like the Master & Commander bonus disc, as it is only 14 mins.

    (Haven't watched it since I want to watch the actual movie first)

    I had a good experience this weekend (a little off topic, sorry). I had a preferred customer coupon for 10% and wanted to use it on something that did not qualify. The chappy in the relevant section said no (politely) but I tried the checkout guy and he was very obliging. I came away happy.

    BTW - I order on-line at bb.com and do a store pick-up. I get charged slightly less sales tax this way plus I earn contributions to my Upromise account for my kids college. If you don't do the latter, check it out....

    I generally wouldn't consider myself a fan either...

    BUT, I did pick up The Bellboy and The Ladies Man today as they are titles I am quite fond of.

    Maybe I'm half French? [​IMG]

    I wouldn't worry about the BB 'Day After Tomorrow' bonus disc:
    (all non-anamorphic) Fox movies promo; AVP trailer; Predator SE trailer; Alien Quadrilogy trailer; short I, Robot promo; then a REALLY REALLY short bit about creating opening scene of Day After-

    Apparently they shot the actors on a small stage, and a COMPUTER added the rest!

    Tim ~ To be honest I'm probably more interested in the $10 off coupon for Alien Quad that comes with the disk than the disk itself. Either way it's in the mail so I'll check it out when it gets here.


    Besides, always nice to add something else to the collection, esp. if it's free [​IMG]

    Agreed, Mike. $10 off the Alien, Die Hard, or Bruce Lee set is a good thing! Maybe I was spoiled by that free Sky Captain disc BB had a month ago that had a bit more meat to it.

    Just a quick report.

    I DID secure the That's Entertainment! set for $34.99 at BJs on Tuesday. I then went to Best Buy and got The Day After Tomorrow for $15.99 with bonus disc and Damn Yankees for $14.99.

    Does anyone know if Circuit City, in its 2 for $15 sale will sell you just one DVD for $7.50? There is only one title in the group I'm interested in and I'm unsure what their policy is on this. I know Target and some other stores have two-fer deals but actuall program the sale as single-prices for the individual titles. Any help?

    Mike,

    if they are anything like BB, they will charge you anywhere from 9.99 to 14.99 for those movies, when bought individually.



    Just my 0.02...



    Later,



    Roy C.

    Bet you've been saying that phrase a lot this week. I can just hear it now: 14YO Son: "Who's your Daddy, Daddy! Who's Your Daddy!" [​IMG]

    Hmmmm, I have been eyeing L.A. Story.... [​IMG]
