Tesco sells 24 minute Kung Fu Panda film for £5Which? member brands Tesco DVD offer 'poor value'

20 July 2010


A Tesco promotion offering a Kung Fu Panda DVD for £5 has been branded ‘poor value’ by a Which? member who discovered the DVD is only 24 minutes long.

The DVD, Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Furious Five, is a follow-up to the animated film Kung Fu Panda starring Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman. A Which? member wrote to us after their 11-year old daughter paid £5 for the ‘heavily promoted’ DVD at Tesco, only to discover the length of it when the family sat down to watch.

Kung Fu Panda DVD for £5 at Tesco

Tesco’s website sells both the new Kung Fu Panda DVD, released last week, and the first film - which is 92 minutes long - for £5.

Which? advises checking DVD packaging carefully for the film length and any other surprises you might not already be aware of before you buy.

Our member complained to Tesco about the DVD, but because the family had watched it they were not able to get a refund. To find out your consumer rights when returning goods, take a look at our Consumer rights section, so you’re armed with your rights before you buy.
