1.0 out of 5 stars The outer part of the case doesn't seal right, Oct. 13 2011
I like Otterboxes, I have them on my phone. When I bought my iPad I was looking at cases. I happened to see an old Otterbox for the original iPad at a store -- they don't sell iPads, so they weren't getting the new ones. I found this case on Amazon. I wondered how it was going to fit, but I trusted the company worked that out. Anyway after getting case apart and the iPad in it I am satisfied with the hard plastic portion. The outer rubber part is annoying. It took several times to get it to sit properly, there was bunching at corners and along the side with home button. I eventually got it on.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm hooked, May 16 2009
I happened to see 2 episodes of this show a couple of years ago. Steve Earle was in them, I am a fan of his post Copperhead Road years. In the show he spoke at the NA meeting. Kudos to Steve for doing it and to the writers for fitting it in there.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst, Aug. 17 2008
I generally like to buy movies to support the community. The description of this movie sounded interesting, the reality is, it was probably better on a story board or as a book.

It is painful to watch.

I would have liked to have seen a review of this mess before I purchased it. As it is I now have to search around the web before I buy something, caveat emptor.

To top it all off, Amazon, sent me two copies of this. I won't even give it to friends. Garage sale is out. There must be a repository for the worst movies ever made.
