Really the two aren’t so different….

Date-approved, yet still enjoyable

Our Idiot Brother

Despite what the posters say, Our Idiot Brother is less of a roll-on-the-floor-comedy, and more of a feel-good-indie. That doesn’t mean you won’t laugh out loud while watching though (the parole officer conversations and an attempted threesome are particularly rich moments). Loaded with generation X stars including Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones…

Football Cops Trailer

Is it a clever marketing campaign for DirecTV? Yes, but given the hilarious nature of the trailer and the fact that it involves grid iron stars Peyton and Eli Manning donning fake staches and hurling spirals of death…we still just had to share. Enjoy, and expect more of this series to develop as fall approaches….

Abiding Finally in 1080p

The Big Lebowski Limited Edition

The Dude would surely approve of the leisurely 10+ years it’s taken the Cohen Brothers to release their cult-classic on Blu-ray. Based on what’s included in the newly announced, limited edition version ($21), however, — the extended patience from fans will be paid back in full. For starters, the studio announced that the film has…

So Wrong, So Funny

In Bruges (Blu-ray)

In Bruges ($19) is a dark comedy that’s steadily picked up a cult following since its 2008 release. The story follows the actions of two Irish gangster/hit men who’ve been ordered to lay low – you guessed it – in Bruges (broozh), after a hit gets a little too messy. Don’t know how to pronounce…

The Perfect Film for the Tail End of Summer

Adventureland Blu-ray and DVD

Chances are if you missed this in theaters, you probably mistook it as a kids movie, or worse. Perhaps as a dumb comedy along the lines of “Soul Plane”. Though the title may ring bells of “Disneyland”, Adventureland is really a film for the nostalgic adults of our generation. Hilarious at sometimes and thought provoking…
