Today, I rented a copy How To Train Your Dragon for my young son to watch. I put the DVD in, hit play without paying attention, and went off to make lunch. A few minutes later, my son ran into the kitchen screaming. Apparently, there was a mix up at the rental store and I got a copy of Saw IV. FML

That cow is scarier than Saw. However, I can't recall a DVD that plays just by throwing in the disc and hitting play. There's always a menu to go through.


1) There's always a menu to go through if it's not pirated.
2) I understand that parenthood is tiring by itself, not to mention the 541694752 other things you have to accomplish in a day, but you really should pay attention to what you're putting in for your kid to watch. The Saw IV disc has a decapitated head on it with Saw IV in HUGE letters.

I'm calling BS on this FML


Actually, I replied to #31...I think it was #31 anyways.
I did read your comment, Chaos. however, I figured someone so oblivious to a print on a disc would probably lack the necessary skills to program their player to bypass the menu.

Maybe you should not be so emotionally invested in your comments. You're getting all irritated by me ignoring your comment and filling up the page with your garbage :P


You stated that it was possible that she didn't need to press "play" from the menu.

And no, actually I restated what #31 said for the purpose of re-emphasizing the statement and then added my own statement about why the FML seemed fishy.

Does that make sense to you now, or do you need even further explanation?


77, just because the op didn't pay attention to the disc print or whatever its called doesn't mean he doesn't have skills to program his player. programing your player does not need the skill of quickly noticing pictures. and i agree with chaos u just repeated what those two people already said making your comment garbage and/or uneccesary


It's entirely possible that I missed it, and if so, please point out who said it, but I saw no one mention the disk print before me.

And who cares if multiple people say the same thing in their own way?
Some people have clever and funnier ways to repeat the same thing.
And why would some read 100+ comments to make sure that no one else said what they are about to say?

If you do not want to read repeated comments, then don't read the comments. That seems logical to me.

96: Actually when you go and rent movies now most of them don't have pictures printed on the disks. They are simply silver with the title written in small letters on the inside rim area. Basically if OP didn't read that, which most people wouldn't then it makes sense that they didn't notice it was not the right movie.



I work in a movie store and although there are many with no print on them, I know for a fact that Saw IV does. As I stated earlier, Saw IV has a decapitated head on a scale with huge letters stating "Saw IV" on it. This definitely wasn't a case of a silver disc, it's just being neglectful.

I seriously doubt that OP is going to inspect the disk before watching it. However: I would like to know how he managed to not look at the disk long enough to not notice 'Saw IV' on it. Unless it was one of those stores that give you a disk that's almost empty, except for a little bit f fine print around the inside edge.

Well, the dvd being rented, I doubt it was a pirate version (but I guess it's possible). And why call a Blu-ray a DVD ?

In any case, I don't think it will fuck up the kid. He may have a few nightmares, but appart from that, I don't thing any major mental damage was done here (who here never tried to see a "horror movie" as a young kid, even if it was forbidden by the parents ? :P)
