I also made the mistake

I also made the mistake of purchasing Mission Impossible 2 on DVD. I had forgotten just how bad this movie was in spots. Surprisingly, the DVD extras were just as bad as the film; the making-of featurettes seemed to be produced solely to show us what a great actor Tom Cruise is because he showed up to work every day, didn't talk down to the help, and did a lot of his own stunts. Gee, that's great, but how about a little insight on how the stunts worked and how they fit into the plot?

Anyway, I know some people out there did like Mission Impossible 2, and it would be a shame to waste the DVD. So, if you are one of those people, let me know and I'll choose someone to send the DVD to. All I ask is that if the recipient isn't 100% satisfied with the DVD, they send it along to someone else to enjoy. (Update: I have a winner! Thanks for playing.)
