@Jerry: Sorry about your sweatshirt, but just because the movie was filmed "with cameras from wal-mart's electronics dept" doesn't mean its going to be bad. I predict this movie will do fairly well.

Furthermore, this is looking to be a low budget operation. Bungling orders, shooting the movie with cameras from wal-mart's electronics dept. word of mouth will hopefully kill this bird the 1st day.

They are wack. slusho just decided to cancel the order I placed in the beginning of Dec without ever letting me know. I just wanted a damn sweatshirt. The transaction was pending, they just never deducted it in the end, won't answer any emails as to whether I have to make another order or what.
