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.

Over Her Dead Body


None February 7th, 2008

Reviewer's Grade: C-

 

Eva Longoria Parker of TV's "Desperate Housewives" stars as Kate, a type-A woman crushed by an ice angel on her wedding day, who returns from the afterlife to keep her husband-to-be from romancing the psychic (Lake Bell, TV's "Surface") who is trying to contact her. Seems that the man's sister Chloe (Lindsay Sloane, "Nancy Drew") wants the psychic to fake a message from beyond, telling Henry (Paul Rudd, "Knocked Up") to move on with his life.

 

Borrowing elements from "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir," "Blithe Spirit" and "Topper" among others, screenwriter/director Jeff Lowell's romantic comedy is smilingly amusing, but never guffawingly funny. The cast is pleasant, especially Rudd, who is a comic actor on the rise. Bell has some nice moments as well and easily steals every scene she shares with top-billed star Parker, who should have demanded more to do. PG-13
