    Hi
    I was at Best Buy the other day and for some reason, they had like 50 copies of the Boogie Nights 2 disc version on display. I couldn't find any Sale on this item and was wondering why they had so many. Then, I went to Best Buy's website and they only list the 1-disc version.
    So, is the 2 disc version OOP? I've always wanted to pick this up and don't want to miss the boat.
    Anyone know?

    I can obviously find it many places online. I'm just curious why Best Buy would have 50 copies of a relatively obscure movie unless they were blowing them out.

    I don't really want to buy it right now, but if its going OOP, I will.

    As far as I know, it's not going out-of-print. It's still listed as being available on the Warner business-to-business website.

    As for why your Best Buy has so many on display, maybe they got a deal to take a lot of extras out of a distributor (or BB had them sitting the warehouse and finally got them out to the stores). They do this from time to time, the local Best Buy here has around 200 copies of Rush Hour 2 on the floor now. They had maybe 20 copies three weeks ago.

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping someone with retailer or wholesaler access would have insight.
    By the way, I can understand 200 copies of Rush Hour. 50 copies of Boogie Nights is a bit more odd. [​IMG]

    I was just at BB an hour ago, and noticed a bunch of the 2-disc Boogie Nights in a rack right next to the new releases, along a very odd assortment of other titles... Blade Runner, The Big Sleep, can't remember what else but it didn't seem to have any rhyme or reason.

    And yeah, they had a billion copies of Rush Hour 2 on display.

    I found the same situation at one of the local BB's today. Just to be safe, and since this has been on my to-buy list for some time, I picked it up.

    This may sound stupid... but maybe it will be featured in an upcoming sale? [​IMG]

    I'm not sure Boogie Nights is the kind of, uh, "Action" they had in mind! :b

    David -- uhhhhhhhh, I don't know how you found that link on Best Buy's site but if you simply type "Boogie Nights" into the search box and hit enter, it returns one result - the single disc version.

    As far as a sale, there is no listing of Boogie Nights in last week or this upcoming week's circulars.

    Damin -- it was discussed here at length. Here is one thread in particular that uses the IMAGE site as a reference.

    Patrick, do what you did again, and this time scroll down a bit to the area where it lists the individual variations, including VHS releases, and you will see that the 2nd listing in that group is the (2PK). You'll see it headlined by the title "5 formats to choose from:".

    Ah, I see now. I'm not sure that's an effective way to note multiple versions. On my computer, that list is "under the fold" as they say....

    If I were actually buying that DVD, I would have moved on to another site.
