Today was supposed to be the DVD release of the much anticipated (at least by me) "Pirates of the Great Salt Lake" movie! But will it really happen?

They were supposed to release this movie on the ever-hallowed September 19th, "Talk Like A Pirate Day", but somehow that got the axe. (Or the plank. What's a good "bad" pirate slang idiom for getting the rug pulled out from under you? ... maybe keel hauling...)

Then they set the release date for today, December 9th, but neither Amazon or Walmart websites have it for sale. Boohooo!!!

I've been looking forward to this one: mindless, clean fun (but hopefully not as mindless as "Napolean Dynamite" I'm from Idaho and I took that one rather personally). However, I'm a bit leary also. The reviews are all good, the trailer is funny, but then the reviews and the trailer were good for last year's "Stalking Santa" and that was such a dud that I turned it off after 20 minutes and wished I had that time back in my life.

Judge for yourself watch the trailer below! And if you find a copy of this thing, run a flag up the pole for me.

I've seen it for sale on both sites!

Thanks! I see it at Walmart now, but the Amazon site still has no "buy" option. :(

$19?? Yikes.
Maybe I'll go rent it instead.

I want to come watch. I could use a little humor today!

That does look funny... We are (or at least I am)fan(s) of cult favorites... Doug doesn't get it some of the time... poor guy.
