No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Knights of Badassdom

In 2008, the third act of the guy comedy Role Models used LARPing — live-action role-playing, that is — as a backdrop for our protagonists' lessons learned. Today, Knights of Badassdom extends that half-hour into a full feature, to the point where viewers are left not smiling, but exhausted.

Switched on

Not everything on television has to appeal to mass audiences. In fact, with the further fractioning of viewership thanks to alternatives like Netflix and VOD, more series can afford to become more niche. Here are five examples of shows both past and present — and new to DVD and/or Blu-ray — that encompass some of the more outrageous ideas ever to go beyond boardroom discussion.

Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland

None February 9th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: C


Did you hear the one about the Hollywood heavyweight who piled four unknown stand-up comedians into a bus and toured America, playing 30 cities in 30 days? You will once you've seen the documentary on the 2005 experiment. (Its Oklahoma City gig comprises all of 20 seconds in the finished film.)


Obvious right from the start is that none of the quartet proves to be that successful of a yuk-wringer, although as the road takes its toll, they get a little better. So does the movie when it finally decides to give us some background on these boys. Vince Vaughn is an adept host, but the structure is so freewheeling, it's over before a rising star can emerge.


One of the funniest bits is a clip featuring an unrecognizable Vaughn in a 1980 "CBS Schoolbreak Special" about steroid abuse. Ah, those were the days. R
