    I guess he is. not sure why its a new thread though confused [​IMG]
    AFAIK that must be one of the first Fox canadian releases that gets a bilingual.

    Nothing to worry about though considering the price, really

    The Day After Tomorrow and Garfield from FOX also had bilingual packaging. MGM's Walkiing Tall and the 1 disk reissue of... (can't remember)... was also bilingual.

    Follow my lead, people!

    DON'T buy anything with bilingual packaging.

    KEEP a running total of money you've saved from doing so.

    EMAIL, PHONE, or WRITE the offending studios (and stores you would have bought the products at) and let them know your viewpoint AND how much money you haven't given them. This is the only thing they'll listen to. Common sense isn't working here, so appealing to their pocketbooks is the next step in the ongoing war...

    ...which we seem to be losing at an amazing rate.

    Regarding FOX's switch to bilingual crap for movies, I'm more than a little concerned for their TV product (Buffy: Season 7 comes in a few weeks with Millennium: Season 2, 24: Season 3 and Angel: Season 5 soon after). If they decide to apply the same rules with season sets, it's gonna get expensive importing.

    The French packaging has saved me a lot of money. If the cover is bilingual, I order the US version online. Simple as that. But sometimes I forget to buy the title. and that saves me money!!
