    Went in to my local Hollywood Video and to my complete shock, ALL 50 copies they had were WIDESCREEN! No "full screen" discs to be found!!
    Anybody else experience this or did you have zero luck finding a WS copy to rent?

    I hope you don't want to find a pan & scan to rent.
    That would be grounds for removal! [​IMG]

    Are some retailers starting to get smart when it comes to ordering widescreen versus pan&scan? Chris

    Costco is starting to p#@$ me off, Cats and Dogs was the same way. They had tons of them all full screen. I waited until the WS Cats and Dogs came out and Costco STILL didn't get any Widescreens.
