I can't my mickey Dees is too far for my too slow electric scooter at 4.5MPH to go there, rent it then have to go back at 4.5 Miles Per hour; this is now summer weather. I would be a prime example of a tan colored hot potato if I made the trek.Posted Image

This Vermont state trooper got into a fist fight with the cashier when he recieved a fullscreen DVD instead of a widescreen one.

Can we sue them for not offering widescreen?

Looks like these will be in my area. I wouldn't mind some $1 rentals as I despise Blockbuster. I'll check it out.

Of course I won't be there to buy the food. Posted Image

I can't believe they are serious about this! The McDonald's employees in my town can hardly get my simple orders correct. How will they be able to handle the business of DVD rental?

far as I can tell from the article, looks like the rentals will be from a machine located inside McDonalds. the lady who takes your order will not be the one checking to make sure you have the right DVD in the box.

I just wonder how returns work. And can I get my DVD in 30 seconds or my next rental is free?

In my town we have these booths everywhere. The first one I did see was at McDonalds, then followed by Giant and Safeway. You don't have to go to anybody to get the movies. There is a touchscreen and pretty decent sized selection of movies to pick from. The one at McDonalds is outside of the store so the place can be closed if you are doing some late night drinking and want a movie.

Interesting idea. I hope this takes off nationally, as I hate paying 3.00 for one day rentals! If they don't offer widescreen though, I don't see it taking off.

What's to stop people from ripping these off? I can see a lot of cases returned with AOL CDs inside.

I believe you have to have a credit card to rent a movie. If you return an AOL disc then they charge the movie to your credit card.

Who will clean off the grease stains from the discs after the STAFF have handled them? There's gonna be a lot of gummed up players out there! Posted Image

So now, not only will the food make you fat, but the DVD will also ensure you don't get any exercise, making you even fatter!
