    So... are there any self-help support groups yet for those who didn't get a puzzle?

    The puzzle image itself is rather low quality. I'm surprised it's getting people so worked up.

    Paul Zamarelli didn't get a puzzle, Dobby didn't get a puzzle - more proof that Paul Zamarelli = Dobby! :eek: (I'm obviously kidding)

    I didn't expect the puzzle to be inside the amaray case, so I initially thought that my copy didn't have it. I was initially disappointed, but I thought, "what the heck, the disc content is exactly the same, and it's not like I get off on some naked chick." Turns out I DID get the puzzle. Which is kinda nice, seeing as it's collectable and all, but yeah, not getting it would not have ruined my day. So Paul Zamarelli, 100 bucks and my puzzle is yours. :p

    It looks ok from what people have posted. Though I would have to see it up close. Before making any judgment but I believe you.

    Let this be a lesson to BD manufacturers: nudity + niche + "limited" =

    Finally popped in my disc. Damn, it looks amazing! I didn't remember liking this film so much, despite the cheese, bad acting and stupid end, this is one fun film!! And very re-watchable.

    The back states both versions of the film, but there really is only one with different sound options. I watched the English version.

    I read the Spanish version has extra footage or different footage so it's not just the sound that's different :)

    There's no option on the disc, just under audio and they are all the same length.

    There are 2 separate versions on disc 1, with the Spanish version running about a minute and a half longer. Someone posted a link detailing all the differences here recently and from what I remember, it was mostly longer inserts of the puzzle being put together.

    My disc definitely gives me an option of English version and Spanish version when I press play.

    You have to select the Spanish version when you first start the movie, Shannafey. Toggling the audio to Spanish while watching the U.S. version won't engage the seamless branching and give you the extended version. The longer Spanish version has only 1 available soundtrack, Spanish. The Spanish track that accompanies the U.S. version appears to be slightly truncated for the shorter run-time. Hopefully that all makes sense.

    But you still have to select it from audio options, right?

    I don't believe so. When I choose the Spanish version under "Play" it starts the longer version with the Spanish soundtrack.

    All you have to do is put the disc in and choose PLAY MOVIE. It should give you the option.

    I don't believe it's done via seamless branching. Pretty sure each version is it's own separate file on the disc.

    You're on the money, CPT HOOK. DVDBeaver lists 2 completely separate encodes.

    I need to look at this again. I watched the English version. What scenes were cut?

    I've said this before and I'll say it again. Simple fix. NUMBER YOUR DAM BOXES!!!

    Then we wouldn't have this problem. Say you're releasing 3000 limited copies, then number the boxes. Every company and I mean every company that has a limited release with a set number should number the merchandise.
