    i just picked up my copy from my local B&M and when i opened it up, their was no included booklet with the chapter stops et al. i returned it and swapped it out with another copy and it didn't have a booklet either. well, being the good capitolists that they were, they weren't about to open up every copy they had to see if they are all that way. did my local B&M get a bad batch or are they all this way? thanks for any help you can provide.

    There is a thread about this at DVDTalk, and the consensus there is that no one who posted in that thread has a booklet or chapter insert, either. Looks like MGM didn't include any for this title.

    MGM doesn't include booklets on all their dvds, I wrote them about BABY BOOM and they said it didn't have one.

    I was also wondering why there wasn't a booklet but I guess there isn't one for this DVD.

    A lot of talented people have made replacement inserts that can be printed out for Superman, Goonies, etc...
    Is there any chance one of them could use that talent to create inserts for some of these titles? I need It's A MadX4 World and Killer Klowns. It just doesn't feel right without a chapter list... lol

    Anything's possible, but for starters these people will have to sit down with the disc, jot down all the chapter info from the "scene select" menu (a real pain with some of these navigation systems), and then work up a design and layout on the 'puter. Then they have to print & trim the insert before, well, inserting it.
    I'd rather pay MGM an extra buck or two for them to do the work for me. C'Mon; it CAN'T cost THAT much!
