THREE DAY WEEKEND IS OVER.
Back to the new releases.
September starts off with a couple of headline makers, past and present. In Georgia Rule, Lindsay Lohan plays a rambunctious, rebellious teenager (redbox is going to let the obvious jokes slide) who’s forced to live on an Idaho farm with her Grandmother Georgiaâ€”played by Jane Fonda. When LiLo’s character reveals a huge secret, the two must do some fast bonding and fast learning from each other.
Next up, join Michael Edward Rose, Glenn Morshower and Larry the Cable Guy in the army spoof Delta Farce. They play a group of enlistees who get trained, get shipped out, and think they’re on their way to Iraq. When they accidentally end up in a Mexican village, hilarity follows. (Yep, it’s a comedy. When your last name is “the Cable Guy”, youâ€™re probably not doing drama anytime soon.)
All aboard the conspiracy theory train. Next stop: rural Pennsylvania. In The Unholy, Adrienne Barbeau plays a woman who begins to investigate a few local, rural conspiraciesâ€”involving an old witch and lots of occult activityâ€”after her daughter takes her own life. But it all threatens to get her way too close to way too many truths. Nicholas Brendon and Siri Baruc co-star.
So let’s say, hypothetically, that your funny bone is in need of a good tickling. Well, comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is just the doc for the job. In Jeff Dunham: Arguing With Myself, Jeffâ€”one of Jay Leno’s fave funnymenâ€”along with Bubba J, Sweet Daddy Dee and JosÃ© JalapeÃ±o, serve up some ventriloquistic magic. Who’s doing the talking? You decide.
More laughs? If you think you can handle it, you got it. The wildly popular comedian Katt Williams brings you his latest tour on the new DVD Katt Williams: Live. Here, Williams keeps on doing what he does best: raw comedy mixed in with plenty of social commentary in front of a live audience that’s driven to hysterics. Great stuff.
So those are the new ones. But did your Labor Day travels keep you from seeing a little smash hit called Blades of Glory? Will Ferrell and Jon Heder go skate-to-skate as rival skaters who get disgraced, then completely redeem themselves as flamboyantly-clad partners.
Pick them online. Grab them at any redbox location near you. Until next week, enjoy all the new ones.
