Every movie available for purchase has a UPC (Universal Product Code) tag. UPC codes are unique numerical identifiers assigned to individual items; these identifiers are used by stores for tracking. Finding out what the UPC code is without having the DVD in hand, however, can be difficult--unless you have access to the Internet. Online tools make finding out the UPC code for any movie very simple.
