Today's New DVDs- 8/11/09

I Love You, Man: It's not quite as solid as the Apatow pictures it emulates, but John Hamburg's "bromantic comedy" still brings large doses of the funny.

Gigantic: There are interesting scenes, and good performances, and generous doses of Zooey Deschanel. But this comedy/drama is all over the place, tone-deaf and all too intoxicated by its own cutesiness.

17 Again: Believe it or not, I actually grabbed this one out of the screener pool and will be reviewing it in the next few days. Why, you might ask? Well, it's directed by Burr Steers, who did Igby Goes Down a few years back. I've got a feeling that his reverse-Big with the star of High School Musical might not have quite the same edge. But we will see!

About Last Night... (Blu-ray): Take a look at this one if you'd like to see how to spectacularly fuck up a great David Mamet play. Or if you'd like to see a young Demi Moore naked a lot. Either one.
