Ok, so this isn't a blockbuster but it really irks me that Disney gives R1 P&S crap and Anamorphic widescreen to R2.

Nigel Sixpack owns widescreen TVs that Joe Sixpack doesn't. It's that simple

Are widescreen TV's really so unprevelant over there?

Over here in the UK almost everyone I know (not all of the film buffs to be certain) who has bought a TV in the last few years has a widescreen TV, they're fast becoming the default choice.

I'm suprised the US seems to be behind in this respect.

Yes they are. To get a widescreen TV you must buy HDTV (though I believe there may be a few obscure cheaper models) basically making minimum buy-in in the $1000 range.

And the criminally underrated Country Bears has just had a widescreen (DTV) release!

(Why didn't any of the excellent songs from this movie get nominated for "Best Original Song" at last year's Oscars?)
