1.0 out of 5 stars We've Been HOODWINKED!!, Oct. 17 2003
I already have the first DVD version of this movie. I got
the 2-disc special for the widescreen version. Turns out,
the widescreen version is actually a "Matted Widescreen".
What's a "Matted Widescreen", you ask? That's the full-screen
version with the tops and bottoms cut off. You now get even
LESS of the movie. This dog is going back!! Warner Brothers
did the same thing to the latest release of National Lampoon's
Christmas Vacation, so don't bother getting it either. Wish I
knew who to complain to over at WB!

1.0 out of 5 stars This Version is GARBAGE!, Oct. 17 2003
I just got my copy of the SE version of Christmas Vacation.
I've been waiting and watching for it to come out in widescreen
format for years. Finally it arrives! But wait, what's this??
It's a "Matted Widescreen". What's a "Matted" Widescreen?
Why that's the pan-and-scan version with the top and bottoms
cut off. So instead of losing 30% of the movie's scenes watching
the pan-and-scan version, you can now lose more than 50% of
the movie!! To top it off, I also purchased "A Christmas Story -
20th Anniversary" edition to find out Warner Brothers did the
same thing to it. I'm sending both back!! Shame on you Warner
Brothers!
