You know what i hate, when you buy a dvd and its got layers and layers of stuff to peel off. I just got Bubba Ho-tep and i was going to watch it before work so i peel off 1st outer layer of plastic to get to 2nd layer of plastic. Once i get that done i now have to get to THREE stickers, one on top, one on bottom, one on side that i have to **** around with for 5min before i get them off and i i scratch up DvD case while doing it.

Bastards......thats all i have to say.

Lol...I know exatcly what you mean. I always try to pick off the stickers with my nails to no avail. Then I try using the closest sharp object laying around (usually a pencil or pen) and end up writing on the cover or denting/scratching the plastic on the fron of the case.

Gets me into a 5 minute fit every time!! :)

hahaha... I share the agony. Usually I have luck using my finger nails, but I tear the plastic that is bound to the dvd case and is not part of the protective plastic. The thing I hate worse than this is those plastic containers that you usually by remote controls or headphones in... the vacuum/heat sealed plastic that you need scissors to open. Then even still you end up cutting yourself on the plastic. I mean, I understand its supposed to be a theft deterrant, but how is it a deterrant if the person who purchased it has to go thru the same removal process as the thief who stole it?

Oh My. Bubba HoTep - that was one freakingly funny movie.

Does the DVD include some of the deleted scenes not in the theatrical release?

Ever hear of a razor or knife?

But seriously, I feel your pain. Farkin **** me off that they put three security seals around the thing. Wouldn't one on the side work fine? Oh, and console games are getting just as bad nowadays too.

Tried peeling the plastic off but just ended up pulling the vinyl covering off the case.


Car keys work good on getting a part of it started, knifes are good but one wrong move, youll be in the emgerency room lol.

I dont get it why there is three now. Maybe it takes people longer to open, so less likely to steal it out of the case and walk out the store.
