    I think the OP is just oblivious. I mean, reading it right side up and upside down is the point considering the pictures of the 2 different Buttercups and Wesleys.

    Why else would there be an upside-down "the" under the title??

    It`s a special edition, maybe the original doesn`t have the same design.

    But I forgive you for being oblivious, I would be too :D

    Noticed this at the store. Turned it around a few times and put it back. Good movie, just seen it too many times for it to be worth my $15.

    Tell us some other things you`ve only just noticed. It`s entertaining...kinda like watching a puppy chase its own tail.
