Project X X didn't mark the spot for most critics, as "piggish" "clumsy" and "pathetic" were some of the more gentle adjectives applied to the movie. But if you like raunchy teen comedies about parties that never stop long after they should and kids behaving super-badly, this may be up your alley. Extras: Short featurettes on the characters, the party scenes, and damage costs (DVD/BD).
Big Miracle When a family of gray whales gets trapped in the ice in northern Alaska, an activist (Drew Barrymore), a reporter (John Krasinski) and a host of unlikely allies (a political aide, a National Guard pilot, an oil mogul, the local Inuit tribe) work together to free them--as romantic subplots and political satire plays out in the background. It was a true story that captivated the headlines back in 1988, and serves as entertaining family fare 25 years later. Extras: Deleted scenes, director commentary, a fewaturette on the true story with the people who were there (DVD/BD); the BD adds a behind-the-scenes featurette.
Wanderlust Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd play married Manhattanites who move to a hippie commune after he loses his job--hilarity ensues? Extras: Deleted, extended and alternative scenes (DVD); gag reel, line-o-rama, four featurettes (DVD/BD); the BD adds a "Bizarro Cut" with 80 minutes of added jokes in every scene.
Jeff Who Lives at Home If they gave out awards for "feel-good movie of the year," this easygoing, charming and heartfelt gem from the Duplass brothers would win. It's as galumphy and oddball as star Jason Segal is playing titular slacker Jeff, who spends a very strange day with his jerk of a brother (Ed Helms)--and in a bizarre sequence of events, ends up bringing his family closer together. It has charm without being cutesy, genuine laugh-out-loud moments, and you don't need to have a sibling to identify. Extras: None
The FP Your next cult classic just hit Blu-ray and DVD. In some not-so-distant future, rival gangs battle each other in a dance video game called "Beat Beat Revolution" in a turf war for the rural wasteland that is Frazier Park. When the popular BTRO (yep, that's his name) falls dead after a showdown, brother JTRO (who spends the entire movie inexplicably and hilariously wearing an eyepatch) sets out to avenge his death. It's '80s retro (James Remar from The Warriors even narrates), uproariously profane and if you don't get the joke then that's too bad, because it's on you. Extras: 2 hours of featurettes on the making-of, the costume design, the setting of Frazier Park, audio commentary, and more. Not convinced? Watch this exclusive clip.
