    I was just wondering what the longest time has been for a dvd to be on order (before you give up and cancel the order)?

    Cheers

    "Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town" ordered, for £4.99, from play last April. Arrived on the morning of a mate's stag do in September. I took it along and have, so far, avoided having him return it! It was not worth the wait...

    Really. With a quality title like that you would have thought otherwise. ;) :D

    LOL! But, in my defence, it does have a young Billy-Bob Thornton in it (though I didn't actually know that when I ordered it :clown:) I doubt, however, that he lists it on his CV and his acting has improved since... a lot.

    My two weeks waiting for Amazon.ca pales into insignificance!

    Been waiting 3 weeks for Donnie Darko (lost in the post), when I phoned up to cancel and order cheaper elsewhere it was too late. Had just gone into packing.

    I pre-ordered Meet the Parent from DVD Express in February 2001.

    I still haven't received it but I haven't been charged either.

    So that's almost 2 years!!! Am I in the lead???

    Apart from Pre-Orders the longest a dvd has taken to get to me is one month, must have gone sightseeing in the UK postal system.:)
