Big Hollywood blockbuster movies on the list this week for new DVD releases. A family-friendly movie about a bear is also available, see below.
The Tourist: This over-hyped film starring Hollywood heavy weights Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp did well at the box office, but not so well with critics, receiving on 20% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The Tourist follows a woman (Jolie) who seduces a tourist (Depp) while trying to evade authorities and find her ex-boyfriend in Venice. The DVD includes outtakes, featurettes, and director's commentary.
How Do You Know: Reese Witherspoon stars in this film with Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd. This one didn't do very well in its theatrical run, but maybe DVD rentals and purchases will help the comedy. Witherspoon stars as Lisa, a softball player who is cut from the National team because she is too old. She meets George (Paul Rudd) who is going through his own mid-life crisis. Although she is dating baseball player Matty (Owen Wilson), she wonders if he is right for her. DVD bonus features include delete scenes, featurettes, and a blooper reel (always funny!)
Yogi Bear: Yogi Bear cost more to make than it was worth as it did poorly at the box office and critics weren't too fond of it. The film follows a documentary filmmaker who travels to Jellystone Park to shoot a project and soon crosses paths with Yogi Bear, his sidekick Boo-Boo, and Ranger Smith. The DVD includes featurettes, and a Yogi Bear Mash-Up.
