    I have the same issues. I’m staying with my friend for Christmas and its only on Amazon and they haven’t set it up yet, so my friend has bought it on eBay, but we won’t get it for Christmas, so its not the same. Love this film. It’s so funny .

    I have never seen this. My dad says it is really funny and I would like to see it but the problem is it never really comes on at the time I need it to to be able to watch it. It either comes on to late or to early and I have to go to my school. I would like for it to come on at 7:00 at night. Thanks if you can make that happen
