A surprisingly large array of DVDs this week, and a bit of something for everybody. This week’s offerings are loaded with horror movies, rom-coms, Tyler Perry flicks and even a porno-thriller. Oh yeah. And in the midst of this hodgepodge of fun, we’ve also managed to locate the Mowry twins of “Sister Sister”. It’s definitely an interesting week on DVD.
Check it all out below…
I never even thought about seeing this film, because the trailer for Life As We Know It is in what I like to now call the “Just Go With It Zone”.
I’ve recently christened this zone based on the trailers for the off-putting new Adam Sandler film. The spots where we see a man making up a family (of course), hating the children (naturally) and then falling on his balls (hilarious!).
This zone is named for the following thought I have watching this trailer: “Who is actually sitting at home, seeing this commercial coming on television and saying to themselves, ‘Wow! That looks great. I have to see that!’”
It’s a reaction that I can’t possibly see anybody having to this trailer. The spot makes the film look so gut-wrenchingly bad that I can’t imagine a carbon-based life form actually being spurred to see this thing.
And that’s where Life As We Know It comes in. Here’s what the trailer makes the movie seem to be: Two people go out on a bad first date. For some reason their mutual friends appoint them joint custody of their kid when they die. Somehow a court thinks this is a good idea and throws them into the house together to raise the child. The kid throws cake at them. They end up falling in love.
Again, I don’t know if any of that is true, but that’s exactly what the trailer for this film makes the storyline out to be. And it raises the question: Who would see that trailer and actually want to go see this movie?
It baffles me.
But if you are one of those people you can buy Life As We Know It on DVD.
