    I knew it would happen. Just take a look at this quote from DVDFile:

    Yes sucks big time

    I bought the American Pie (2-Movie party Pack) now they want me to buy the new box set just to get the bonus disc.

    Universal just doesn't get it.

    It makes me glad I held off on buying the other movies.

    I think that box set only includes American Wedding plus the bonus disc, not all three movies.

    I'm assuming all three movies in the boxed set will be the unrated versions?

    I think you guys are reading the information wrong. The description of the gift set only implies the third film plus a bonus disc. The Jurassic Park set you're comparing this to had four discs and retailed for $75. I seriously doubt Universal would give us the same number of discs for $40 suggested retail.

    The gift set ONLY includes the Unrated widescreen edition of American Wedding.

    SRP on American Wedding: $26.99
    SRP on American Wedding Gift Set: $39.99

    So the extra disc is $13 more.

    In that case, it's another Universal movie I won't buy as I don't want to buy an inferior version adn the oen I want is too expensive. They've already done this with Red Dragon and are also doing it with Seabiscuit.

    Other studios release 2-disc SEs for movies of roughly the same or lesser popularity all the time. I figure I'll hold out and eventual the 2-disc will turn up somewhere cheap. I can be quote patient.

    Frankly, I'm glad I held off on buying the first 2 movies with the "Beneath The Crust" extra discs. I remember reading on here a couple of months back that upon the release of "AW", an extra disc would be made containing both BTC 1&2 plus additional behind the scenes footage for the third movie. I'll definitely be picking up the giftset. No question.

    :b My bad. Should've read the press release a little more carefully. Still, DVDFile shouldn't compare this boxset with the Jurassic Park boxset. I'm happy now.

    Don't worry, I'm sure a box set with all three movies and the bonus disc is not far behind.

    I saw that the AR listed for the American Wedding DVD on DVDjournal.com was 1.85:1. That's got to be a mistake, right?

    The first two films were 1.85:1

    I haven't seen Wedding yet, but IMDB lists this as 1.85:1 as well.

    Maybe it was matted incorrectly when you saw it in the theater?

    Can anyone else confirm the aspect ratio?

    It'd be super cool of Universal to do what they did with the Jurassic Park boxed set. By sending in the UPCs from the previous releases and a check for $5 or so, you were able to get the box for the boxed set, as well as the bonus DVD. Essentially, they let everyone upgrade their individual DVDs to the boxed set. I always thought this was a really great move on their part.

    American Wedding was the first of the series to be shot 2.35:1
