Three funny comedies releasing on DVD this Tuesday. Should keep us laughing all week:
- Good Luck Chuck (Comedy) – It all started when Charlie Kagan was ten years old. Breaking the cardinal rules of spin-the-bottle, Charlie refused to lip-lock with a demented Goth girl – and she put a hex on him. Now, twenty-five years later, Charlie (Dane Cook) is a successful dentist… and still cursed.
Cast: Dan Fogler, Michael Teigen, Chiara Zanni, Michelle Harrison, Jessica Alba; Directed by: Mark Helfrich
- Mr. Woodcock (Comedy) – Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott, and Susan Sarandon star in the “Mr. Woodcock”. Scott stars as John Farley, a self-help author who returns to his hometown only to discover that his mother (Sarandon) has fallen in love with his old high school nemesis, Mr. Woodcock (Thornton) – the gruff, no-nonsense gym teacher who had put him through years of mental and physical humiliation. Determined to prevent history from repeating itself, John sets out to stop his mother from marrying the man who had made life miserable for him and his classmates.
Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott, Susan Sarandon, Ethan Suplee, Amy Poehler; Directed by: Craig Gillespie
- The Ten (Comedy) – “The Ten” is comprised of ten blasphemous and hysterical stories inspired by the Biblical Commandments, each told in a different style, but with characters and themes that overlap. The film is held together by a narrator who, in turn, has his own moral problems.
Cast: Jessica Alba, Adam Brody, Famke Janssen, Gretchen Mol, Oliver Platt, Paul Rudd, Winona Ryder, Liev Schreiber; Directed by: David Wain
