    Anyone notice how ridiculously out of proportion Vin Diesel's arm is on the DVD cover? He looks like Bob Parr, or a World of Warcraft character.

    Of course, I realize not to judge a book by its cover. The contents are even worse than the cover. [​IMG]

    Sorry, wasn't sure what the policy was about linking to images.

    Gotta admit, that is awful.

    No offense meant. I've just needed an excuse to run those smilies! [​IMG]

    The kid on his back looks a little old to be on his back. He looks a little old to be that size, too. For some reason, the art makes me think of Baby Geniuses, which is not what a studios should make me think about if they want me to see their movie.

    Similar color scheme for both, at least in regard to the original Geniuses release. Oddly, CTS put out a reissue a couple of years ago with a different cover. It's the one in print although the two-pack uses the original cover:

    Yes but in that cover, Vin's hand is as big as his head. All that's missing is the I across his chest. And a little blonde hair. [​IMG]

    It's only fitting that craptastic DVD art accompany a craptastic movie!

    There's a joke in there somewhere about Vince bending over to work with Tom, but it's prolly better left for the After Hours area . . . [​IMG]

    It's not really his arm that looks big... it's his head that looks small. If anything, they should have used Photoshop to make that little egg look a bit bigger.

    Yeah, Vaughn is a full 6'5" tall. That's what, a full foot taller than Cruise? [​IMG]

    Vin's arm does look odd though.

    Not that he doesn't deserve it, but Tom is really becoming the butt of jokes these days.

    It is what would happen if Rob Liefeld drew Vin Diesel.

    Going back to the small head (sorry) - that cover reminds me of the final scene in Beetlejuice.

    The arm is inflated to the point that it is longer and larger than his legs, and look at how much they shrunk the kid down in the backpack.. He is older, yet much smaller headed than the infant being carried in the front.
