New on DVD: 'Limitless, 'Take Me Home Tonight,' Plus National Lampoon Classics on Blu

Limitless Bradley Cooper is Eddie Morra, a burned-out loser-ish writer who smokes too much and hates his life--until a chance meeting with an old acquaintance turns him on to a new "smart drug" that unlocks his brain and gives him super-intelligence, endless energy and sets him off on a life of wealth and fame. All things do end, however, and for Eddie, maybe not so well. Extras: Featurette, "A Man Without Limits," the making-of, alternate ending, unrated version (DVD/BD)

Take Me Home Tonight Topher Grace said he wanted to make an '80s movie like John Hughes, and it's too bad this completely unfunny movie about three friends and one wild night (that rips off Hot Tub Time Machine big time) was it. Anna Faris, usually hysterical, is absolutely wasted in her serious role as Grace's sister; cringe-worthy Dan Fogler apes Zack Galifianakis; and even the soundtrack and costumes miss with a style mishmash of late '80s metal and early New Wave that makes no logical sense. Extras: 7 deleted scenes, cast get-together, music videos (DVD/BD)
