Why can't I buy it?

This is a fantastic movie, and I'm so happy its on iTunes! But why can't I buy it? Why do they tease me so? Anyway, other then the fact you can't buy it, I highly advise everyone to at least watch this movie. (^o^)

i want to buy!

this is a great take on a classic story.. leonardo is a complete hottie, claire dane is somewhat odd yet does a good job as whole. is anyone else mad that movies like this and moulin rouge are not available to buy ?

ALL TIME FAVORITES

Although this movies says Released Mar 12, 2002 it was really released in 1996. I was junior in high school and this soundtrack was our spring break anthem. You know how you have those songs or movies that flash you back to places or events in your life. Well this movie brings back very very fond memories.
