Early-year comedies are out in full force this week as I Love You Man and 17 Again hit the shelves alongside a nominee for Best Foreign Language Film in The Class.
Plus, there’s some TV on DVD entries, a collection of every Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and the three worst DVD’s of the week. What more could we expect!?
Check it all out below…
It’s rare for this to happen in a film – but this one was too short. In fact, it was way too short.
Why? Because the characters were so pleasant, the movie so funny, and everything about the story simply so likable that when it came to an end it was a bit of a disappointment.
It was almost like a party that you didn’t want to end. It was just such a letdown, because you wanted to spend more time with these characters, and instantly began to count down the seconds until the fictive sequel I Still Love You Man.
It’s exactly that dismay that makes DVD’s such a wonderful thing. This DVD includes Extended Scenes, Deleted Scenes and other Extra Scenes. Now we can finally whet our full I Love You Man appetite.
Starring: Zac Efron
How many different ways can this movie really be made? It seems like every four years either the mind of a 50-year-old is in a fifteen-year-old’s body or a teenager suddenly looks like an adult.
So what’s the next movie? Can we predict that already?
Is it time for a Haley Joel Osment comeback where he plays a Harvard professor who’s an expert on anthropological behavior in children who must become a child to complete his greatest work?
Or the girl from “Gary Unmarried” who’s fascinated by the world of high finance suddenly breaks up board meetings with her childish antics inside the body of Diane Lane?
Whatever it is, we all know it’s coming. For now, this DVD will have to tide us over until the next cross-generational body switch.
TV ON DVD
“90210” – Complete Series
The remade TV Show.
Of course, this means we’ll have to see more of this soon. The “Melrose Place” remake is already on the list for next season and soon we’ll probably see stuff like “Cheers” with a bunch of twenty-somethings and “The Fugitive” starring the guy from “Wings”. (Wait, that already happened?)
No matter what it is, it’s almost certain that one successful remake will bring about more. Especially when the evidence is neatly packaged on a 6-Disc DVD.

SPECIAL EDITION OF THE WEEK
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film Collection
It’s strange to think this hasn’t already been released. Seriously, all three turtles movies in one place? This seems like something that should have come out with the introduction of the DVD box set.
And we don’t just get the horrible third movie and an excuse to indulge in our secret Vanilla Ice fandom with this set. It also includes the new animated movie to make it the ultimate Turtle fan box set.
Included are a bevy of special features including things like collector’s cards and a comic. How can you go wrong with this four DVD set?
Horrible Straight-To-DVD Release of the Week
Three terrible movies, three new DVDs. Which is the worst? Cast your vote and tell the world!
The nominees are:
The Case to Vote for It: This is a sequel to the bomb Wesley Snipes film of about a decade ago. Actually it’s not. It’s a sequel to the sequel to that movie. A sequel that nobody knows even existed, yet here we are with another sequel. How does this happen?
The Case to Vote for It: Somehow in this movie a man is married to two women. But it isn’t a sort of polygamous relationship: The two women don’t know about each other, but he’s married to them both all the same. When they find out, a battle ensues to see which woman will hang on to her man. Raising the question – How sexist is this movie when they portray women who find out that there husband is married to somebody else yet still want to stay married to him? How low of an opinion of women does the writer of this movie possess?
The Case to Vote for It: So it’s come to this. It wasn’t bad enough that American Pie became a franchise, now Tom Green’s breakout film is rolling out the unrated Straight-to-DVD releases. We start, of course, with the sport of Beer Pong, something played by lame-o frat boys and even lamer 28-year-olds who simply can’t let go. Sounds like a real winner.
