I can't believe that I bought a 1.33:1 full frame of The Mummy Returns at Best Buy last night. I just assumed it was widescreen. You would think by now I would look a little closer to make sure. Just wanted to let you guys know that you better take a second look before buying this movie.

CraigR,
Sorry you picked up the wrong one! Maybe you can return it. I almost did the same thing as BB had them mixed in an open display carton. I walked to it as my eye saw Widescreen, then I got distracted and my hand picked up the Fullscreen version. Luckily, I ALWAYS check the back for a DTS soundtrack and a sick feeling came over me when I saw 1.33:1 for screen display. I went back to the display, shuck my head in disgust & proceeded to pay for the widescreen version...So this is what the market is coming to http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif

jidelite,
I did the same thing as you but failed to look at it until I got home. I had also purchased the SE of the terminator at the same time and did look at the back to make sure.
Went back to BB last night and did an exchange on the Mummy Returns. Big difference in picture quality between the full frame and widescreen edition.
