    I have looked in several stores, and have not been able to find any copies of the widescreen version of Cats & Dogs.
    I have seen in offered on several internet sites. Does anyone know if the WS edition is actually available yet, or has it been delayed as I was told by one store?

    I just got an email from Amazon stating that my WS Cats & Dogs has shipped. So they're starting to appear in more places.

    deepdiscountdvd.com shipped mine. I reviewed it last week - although the supplements are slightly weak, the transfer is beautiful and the audio is occasionally quite lively.

    I stopped by Hollywood video yesterday, and they had several copies on the shelf. Not a single pan-and-scan version! [​IMG]

    Most of the stores in NYC now have the Widescreen version. In fact at 2 of them I didn't even see a "Full Screen" version on the shelf. [​IMG]

    I got exactly the same response at Suncoast, Steve. In fact, the salesguy told me that he knew for certain that there wasn't a widescreen version, because "Warner Brothers is no longer doing widescreen versions of children's and family films."

    Don't you just love it when some sales "jockey" tries to WOW you with his SUPER INSIDERS INFO on releases such as this? When you know for a fact he has no clue what he's talking about? [​IMG]

    For some reason, this response really pissed me off.
    But rather than fight the good fight with the clueless
    blue-shirted wonder's manager, I went online and ordered
    the widescreen version from Amazon.com.
    This makes me want to revive DVD Resource for one last rant...

    I sent an e-mail to RentMyDVD.com asking why they didn't have the widescreen version. Here's the response.

    I stopped in to the HV by my house, and was disappointed yet again by the pan-n-fuckin-scan version of Cats and Dogs. This is two movies now...Mummy Returns, and Cats and Dogs. I talked with the guy behind the counter, and he actually said that this was a travesty. I felt a little better knowing that someone understands my anguish. He said that he would see what he could do, but that it's totally up to the distribution office.
    I am sooo pissed right now....I would love to just have one hour alone with whoever makes these really "intelligent" decisions at the studios. First I would show them the error of their ways, then I would show them my fists pummeling their face.
    Okay, took a break, and I have cooled down..... a little.
    It's too bad really, I would have liked my kids to see this movie.

    At Tower today, a woman asked me where she could find Cats & Dogs. (She heard me talking DVD stuff with a friend who works there so she assumed I was an employee.)
    Instead of saying "I don't work here", I grabbed it off of a shelf and said "There's a Widescreen version coming in a few weeks", fully expecting her to not care at all.
    She didn't. Fortunately, her husband overheard me and said "Yeah, I'll just wait for the REAL version..."
    I wanted to hug him. Instead, I just said "Ah, a man after my own heart" and he then kissed me full on the lips.
    OK, he didn't kiss me but everything else is true. [​IMG]
    Moral of the story: Not ALL DVD consumers are imbeciles. (Probably only about 64%.)

    Checked all my local B&M's today, and still no widescreen love. It's times like these that I wish I had a credit card so I could order online... [​IMG]

    I checked the bigger retailers in the Anaheim/Fullerton area today and no C&D widescreen yet.

    Just to let you Canadians know, I thought I would take a look when I was at Future Shop, and they DID have wide screen available.
