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.

27 Dresses

None January 24th, 2008



Reviewer's grade: B


A star is born as Katherine Heigl, who had a successful co-starring turn in 2007's "Knocked Up," demonstrates that not only can she carry a picture, but can do so with one hand. She plays Jane, a woman who thinks she's happiest when she's serving as a bridesmaid "” which she's done 27 times.


She's in love with her boss (Edward Burns, "One Missed Call") and then, crashing into her life, comes a newspaper writer who covers the wedding beat (Oklahoma native James Marsden, "Enchanted"). She dislikes him so much, you just know they'll fall in love, especially when Jane's younger, gorgeous sister (Malin Akerman, "The Heartbreak Kid") comes to town and starts making goo-goo eyes at Burns.


It's all about as fresh as a mold sandwich, but the script cribs just enough of the right moments from rom-coms past to be amusing, and Heigl is so good, she becomes a movie star right before your eyes. The movie alone is a C-, but Heigl is A-list all the way. PG-13
