Two movies, one a box office bomb and the other a direct-to-video cheapie, make a "franchise" now? Huh.

timed exclusive for best buy already in stores. funny. anyone wanting this will have already bought each separate or in the 2 pack at BB before this comes out. not exactly going to light up the charts, this.

Yeah, I saw it at Best Buy last week for $29.99 and almost bought it, but since I have the first one on HD DVD and would like to rent the new one first I decided to pass on it. It stills says Very Long Wait in my Netflix queuem, which is surprising for a direct-to-video release.

IMO, the sequel is just not worth the packaged deal. and as with Josh, two failed movies don't exactly make a franchise.

I got it immediately through Blockbuster on Wednesday, which probably means it sucks (This Is It is Very Long Wait for me)

Best Buy in Canada had this 2-pack marked @ $27.99, but it rang up @ $21.99
I sold the second movie for $18
