    I was going to buy this great movie today, but I couldn't find it, so I asked one of the "blue shirts" if they had it in stock, and she checked her computer and told me that they don't carry the film!?

    Is this film OOP now? I hope not.

    It's because they got complaints about the color in the movie; the blue shirts are gonna change to gray soon too [​IMG]

    Busted Buy drops lots of older titles. If you ask them about getting them, they'll tell you to use their miserable website or to go to Sam Goodys which they own. I don't shop at Sam Goodys and I order from much better e-tailers.

    Best Buy still carries it, but its spelled incorrectly in the system, so to someone that doesn't do a little bit of extra work, it would appear that Best Buy didn't carry it at all. But it's there--trust me, I know--I looked it up, when my Reese Witherspoon infatuation kicked in a couple of years ago. [​IMG]
    (Think it might be in there as "Plesantville" or "Pleasentville". I can find out for sure tomorrow.)
    (There are a crapload of things that are listed incorrectly in the system, btw. . .) [​IMG]

    They carry it. After it was on TV this week I almost picked it up when I saw it on the shelf at my local Best Buy. That was Tuesday.

    I saw copies of it at my local BB the other day. It was in a white four-sided rack full of mostly WB/NL/affiliated titles for $14.99 or less.

    He's saying it sells for 1¢ above the LIST Price. Everyone else is selling that for either $9.99 or $12.99...check Circuit City or Borders, for example. I heard Targets that have them they go for $9.44!

    Wherever you can find it, it's an excellent film, and an excellent DVD. I've never had a problem finding older discs at Best Buy, but that's probably because I generally don't have the patience to let them get "old".

    I bought the Flint films at Target for 9.44 each. They still have tons of them in my area stores...

    Thanks, David for helping clarify my point about Best Buy. I hardly think of Target for catalog titles of DVDs. I did get A Beautiful Mind at Target with the calculator, but generally only go to Best Buy. The Target store in our town is right across the street so I will have make a trip there while I am in the neighborhood.

    They're listed in the Best Buy system as "Pleasanville", so, if an employee doesn't search, it would seem as if Best Buy doesn't handle the film.
