    Wow...how am I the first official response here tonight??

    I'm thinking Meet the Robinsons is a pretty good deal with the U/S promotion. I'm getting it since it's one Disney movie I don't have and the 3D version is just a bonus.

    Chances are I'll also grab The Lorax for someone's birthday who didn't get to see it in the theater this spring. Adventures in Babysitting is definitely in the Netflix queue...I haven't seen that one in years!

    Thanks, as always, Mike! (Target, Amazon and BB should throw some commission your way based on the sales they generate from members use of your grid. Just sayin'!)

    There seems to be a bit of controversy on which Total Recall will be available with Movie Cash. Most people are expecting this to be a misprint and the MC will be on
    the old release. Hopefully this will be made clear in about 10 hours or so.

    I'm just picking up Clue this week.
    But the Target exclusive Lorax mustache does sound tempting.
    I hear the ladies love a good mustache!

    Thanks for the update, Mike. I'll be using the BB U&S program to pick up the John Cusack Double Feature (Grosse Pointe Blank & High Fidelity).

    And count me as disappointed that there is no dreadlocked finger puppet with Marley...

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    I hope to have the review for Blue Like Jazz up later today.

    I might pick up Clue with that upgrade and save Best Buy coupon but I was hoping that it would be $5 cheaper.
    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Picked up 3D titles Hugo, Tin Tin and Ice Age for 14.99 each at BB with the $5 upgrade coupons. They also have Transformers in 3D but I didn't know if the 3D was good or not so I skipped it. Over forty 3D titles $19.99 and less at Best Buy

    To add to the review of TRANSFORMERS 3, I've read that up to 40% of the movie was 2-D to 3-D converted.
    Shortly after the 3-D Bluray came out, I had found it at a local Disc Replay for $15. I quickly realized why someone did a quick sell on this one. To this day, I still miss that $15 ... ;)

    Getting Adventures In Babysitting with U&S. Also Lorax 3D. Will BB allow a Target pricematch & U&S which'll knock Lorax3D down to $19.99? Thanks as always for the roundup.

    I didn't see a single copy of the new version in my store this morning. (BBY.com also says it is not available anywhere near me.) At least in this area, it's the old version.

    So far all reports say only the old version has the Movie cash. The few folks that have seen the MBE today have all mentioned No Cash.attached

    Thanks for another WRU, Mike.

    Probably Grosse Pointe Blank on BD via BB's U&S deal for me -- maybe High Fidelity also although I probably should rewatch the DVD before deciding on that one. Will probably wait for a better price on Romy & Michelle...

    Grosse Pointe Blank and Romy and Michelle for me, no doubt about it.
