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.

Made of Honor

None May 8th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: D-

It's hard to believe that American womanhood is so starved for romance that flaccid scripts like this get considered let alone made. There is a gag line in Hollywood for lousy movies: That picture didn't get released; it escaped. Patrick Dempsey ("Enchanted," TV's "Grey's Anatomy") plays a millionaire playboy whose best pal is Hannah (Michelle Monaghan, "Gone Baby Gone"), an art restorer.

You need Turner Classic Movies to remember when people in movies like this had real jobs. Anyway, after being taken for granted for 10 years, Hannah meets a perfectly nice guy in Scotland who proposes marriage. She accepts and asks Tom to be her maid of honor, and he accepts so he can poison her new love from the inside. What a guy.

Written and directed by hacks who have shown no semblance of talent in the past, this movie is dire in its paucity of romance, comedy, or charm. If Columbia Pictures left this thing in a basket on the steps of an orphanage, it would freeze to death. PG-13
