Published Oct 26, 2011Although this week's DVD releases may not all have received A-plus reviews, they certainly have A-list casts. To read the full reviews of what's new in home entertainment, head over to our Recently Reviewed section and check out the highlights below.
First, we have a bunch of comedies, some for the whole family, and others not so much. One of those inappropriate comedies is Horrible Bosses, starring way too many A-list celebrities to name. The film is about three employees who plot to murder their bosses after being tortured by them on a daily basis. The next outrageously inappropriate comedy is Bad Teacher, also featuring a slew of A-listers. Cameron Diaz plays a a pot-smoking, booty-shorts-wearing, child-insulting junior high teacher.
On to the family-fun movies reviewed this week. Zookeeper stars Kevin James as an animal whisperer who is so desperate to win his girlfriend back that he begins to take the zoo animals' crazy advice. Also available this week is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. If you can't get enough of Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow, check out this fourth Pirates instalment with the witty, stumbling, swashbuckler as the protagonist.
Moving further into the action genre, but still family friendly, comic book classic Green Lantern is now out. Ryan Reynolds plays the popular superhero in his quest to become a member of the intergalactic policing squad and ultimately save Earth. Also reviewed this week is The Art of Getting By, a coming-of-age drama about two NYC teens experiencing the angst of life and excitement of young love.
Lastly, we have two TV series reviewed this week. The comedy-drama How to Make it in America: The Complete First Season tells the story of a fashion school drop out and his friend struggling to start up a clothing line after failing in the skateboard industry. And finally, Jason Priestley stars in the Canadian comedy, Call Me Fitz: The Complete First Season, as a pompous but loveable car salesman who embarks on self-discovery.
