Could not wait to watch the DVD:
- HEY! What's with all the commercials?
- WHERE did I leave the remote?
- WHY isn't remote control working? SMACK, SMACK, SLAM, SMACK!
- WAIT a minute, the remote is working. The DVD must be locked!
WOW! What jerk thought up this new torture?
It's one thing if you decide to watch the previews.
This is just cruel...
I wish I had read the other reviews before buying this DVD.
My excitement was dead by the time the movie started.
TWO THUMBS WAY DOWN ON THIS DVD...
As others have stated, not being able to skip the adds at the beginning of the DVD is a poor marketing decision. They did the same with American Wedding, but at least, I can hit stop on my DVD player to stop the DVD, whereas with Animal House, I have to turn off my DVD player. Very poor.
I have already written to Universal Studios about my displeasure with their decision for both Animal House and American Wedding and have informed them that unless they change their tactics, I refuse to purchase another Universal DVD release and that hundreds of other purchasers feel the same, based on reviews at Amazon.com.
Stay away from this if you absolutely feel that not being able to skip the adds is wrong. Otherwise, be prepared to sit through 5+ minutes of commercials for other Universal movies. Your best bet is to go make some popcorn and come back. At that point, it should be done and then you can enjoy this excellent, funny parody of life in a frat house in the late 60s.
Toga! Toga! Toga!
It's very hard to find what reason UNIVERSAL found in re-releasing this film on DVD. The video quality is the same as in the last edition and the same pretty much goes also for the audio. All that this proves is how easy it is to make a buck by giving a new edition a colorful name.
UNIVERSAL has let customers down with their "improved" versions of this (classic) movie as well as SCARFACE but they can be sure we will remmember their record when their future releases come out! And regarding their forced commercials, they can rest assured some of us will simply refuse to buy whatever they advertise in this manner just by principle !
