Synopsis

On his way to a meeting with a publisher, aspiring novelist Sam Wexler finds Rasheen, a young boy separated from his family on the subway. When the quiet Rasheen refuses to be left alone with social services, Sam learns the boy has already been placed in six previous foster homes and impulsively agrees to let the boy stay with him for a couple days. Dropped into Sam's chaotic, bachelor lifestyle, Rasheen is introduced to Sam's circle of friends; Annie who has an unhealthy pattern of dating the wrong men, as well as an auto-immune disorder which has rendered her hairless, Mary-Catherine and Charlie whose potential move to Los Angeles threatens their relationship, and Mississippi, an aspiring singer/waitress who tests Sam's fear of commitment. When Sam's unexpected friendship with Rasheen develops, he realizes adulthood is not about waiting for the right answers to get the life you want, but simply stumbling ahead and figuring them out in the process.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 21st, 2011

June 21st, 2011

It's another busy week for DVD / Blu-ray with four first-run releases coming out this week. Five if you include Cedar Rapids, which was had surprisingly brisk ticket sales in limited release. Cedar Rapids is also the only one of the big releases that I would consider for Pick of the Week honors. Despite the number of wide releases on this week's list, I'm going with an unorthodox choice for Pick of the Week, "Weird Al" Yankovic - Alpocalypse, but Louie: Season One on Blu-ray earns an honorable mention.

Per Theater Chart: Red Hot Start

March 8th, 2011

Red State started its box office run over the weekend, sort of. It played at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City at a special engagement, bringing in $161,590 for one showing. However, with ticket prices at $54, it's hardly a regular showing, so some are saying it shouldn't count. There is an argument to be made that people were paying for the Q&A with Kevin Smith and it is more accurate to consider this part of his popular speaking tour. That said, Dreamgirls also started with a premium showing at higher that usual prices and that counted. Given the number of tickets sold, even if they cost the average amount, it still would have earned $30,000, which would have still led the way on the Per Theater Chart. The only real competition was from Happythankyoumoreplease, which opened with an average of $17,532 in two theaters. More...

Weekend Estimates: Rango Posts Biggest Weekend of 2011

March 6th, 2011

Things look a little brighter at the box office this weekend thanks to three sprightly opening weekends. At the top of the list, Rango posted the best opening of the year with $38 million, perhaps not quite as high as the more optimistic pre-weekend predictions, but still the best debut of 2011 to date. In spite of great reviews, it will be interesting to see what legs the film will have, since it skews somewhat older than traditional big-budget animated fare. The Adjustment Bureau landed in second place with a good $20.9 million opening from 2,840 theaters, and again it stands a chance of enjoying good word-of-mouth. Beastly, meanwhile, placed third with $10.1 million. In spite of a mauling from critics, it's actually enjoying the best CinemaScore among moviegoers, suggesting that it's hitting its target demographic (teen girls) very successfully. More...

Dear Limited Releases

March 4th, 2011

There are a few releases of note this week, some because of their strong reviews (Uncle Boonmee); some because of the unusual distribution route (Red State); some because of the actor-turned-director (Happythankyoumoreplease). Overall, there should be something for everyone. More...
