Are you kidding me?!

I love the movie Hot Rod and my bro has never seen it so I thought it would be a great Xmas gift. It is sold out everywhere, even online!!! The only places its available cost way too much and dont guarantee xmas delivery.

I did not realize it was such a popular movie.

Anyway...rant

    [QUOTE]ugh.  It's probably sold out because they stopped making copies.  That movie was terrible.

    That should be a sign for you to not expose anyone else to the crappy film making.

    They don't make it anymore. That's why it's "sold out"

    No demand=no supply.

    [QUOTE]Just looked it up on Netflix.  No wonder you can't find it!  Though, I'm not into that kind of humor. at. all.  And it's 3 years old.  For some reason, I was thinking it was one of those Pixar animated movies. <strong> I would stab my eyes out before watching this</strong>. I guess I'd look in bargain bin type places.  Used book stores?

    Crose - can I just say that I don't think it's the greatest idea to get your brother a gift that happens to be your favorite movie?  It seems a little Homer Simpson to me.  You can rent it for him to watch someday, but I wouldn't get it for him for Christmas.

    heeheehee... worst buy. 

    I did browse their website on black friday and get some good deals though.  They might have redeemed themselves for me.

    I seriously quit watching that movie after 25 minutes.

    Get him a gift card to best buy, so he can buy a good movie.

    H's favorite movie ever is Fast and Furious, you know, the one with Ludacris. Yeah, quality acting on that one.

    I think you should order the movie where you can find it and give it to him as a late Christmas present. I did that with the Top Chef cookbook and just printed out a picture of the cover with a little note saying "it's in the mail". H was like a little kid every time the mailman came for the next week.

    Yeah, I don't have a horse in this race, but katheriner89 was hardly the first to say the movie sucks. A few people said the same thing on page 1. If you are going to flame her, flame them all.

    She also said it was just a stocking stuffer, and she already got a 'nice' gift. My family does that all the time, gets random gifts because we think someone might like it.

    And yeah, others said it was a bad movie, but katherine sounded a lot more condescending to me. Go get a GOOD movie, not 'used junk.'

    I don't believe anyone else suggested that the OP should buy her brother "used junk" from Craigslist as a Christmas present.

    I think Hot Rod is one of the worst movies ever.  Definitely beats out Zoolander and Ace Ventura 2 in my book.  But it IS a Christmas gift and I think if she knows her brother well (as i assume she does) she's probably right about his movie tastes.  My brother loved it.  She did say "But trust me, my brother would love this movie."

    Maybe i am reading too much into things but there was just a nasty "tone" to her post.  If i'm wrong, i'll apologize.

    [QUOTE]I love to get gift cards!  I think they're a great gifts unless you have forgetful family members to buy for. My SIL has yet to use her spa gift certificate I gave her last xmas.  Next time she complains she needs a massage I'll have to remind her I technically gave her one!

    i wish I liked gift cards.  People often give them to me or request them.  i prefer a mystery box that's wrapped all pretty.

    no, it's because you have taste  ;)

    It could be.  The movie was really popular with the male 16-25 group
