What happens to a rich, neurotic family when one of their own writes a tell-all exposing their dirty secrets? The Meyerwitz family is about to find out. And the timing couldn't be more hilariously awful. As the Meyerwitz clan prepares for the 70th birthday of nasty family patriarch HENRY, PEEP WORLD, the expose written by youngest son NATHAN has gone red hot, making a mess of all of their lives. JACK, the oldest son, is failing in his career and now has to bend over backwards to convince his wife LAURA that certain, ahem, salacious events in Nathan's book weren't really committed by him. Sister CHERI, a drama queen and struggling actress, can see the PEEP WORLD movie set from her window, and grows increasingly enraged watching a more successful actress play a horribly unflattering version of her. Her solution: sue her younger brother for libel. Meanwhile, black sheep JOEL, a disaster in slow-motion, plots to turn his life around at his family's expense, and MARILYN, the children's mother, longdivorced from Henry, still carries a torch for her ex, one that's only inflamed further by the revelations in PEEP WORLD. For his part, the now-famous Nathan cluelessly wonders what the fuss is all about and basks in his success much to the annoyance of all around him. Over the course of 24 hours, this group of likable and unlikable misfits will summon their courage to come together for the "family dinner" they'll never forget.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for July 19th, 2011

July 18th, 2011

Looking at the overall strength of the home market releases this week and there's not a lot to look forward to. If you don't count Rango, which came out on Blu-ray / DVD on Friday, then the biggest hit of the week is Limitless. That film is worth picking up on Blu-ray, but it's not exactly Pick of the Week material. In fact, the best release on this week's list is Once Upon a Time in America, which made its Blu-ray debut at the end of May, but the screener arrived very late. Despite this, I'm awarding it the Pick of the Week. More...

Per Theater Chart was Full of Win

March 30th, 2011

Seven films topped the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart this week, but leading the way were last week's top two films: Bill Cunningham New York and Win Win. The former earned $21,786 in 3 theaters while the latter was right behind with $20,192 in 23. My Perestroika earned $17,680 in its lone theater over the weekend and $25,084 since its Wednesday opening. Mia and the Migoo and Miral were neck-and-neck at $16,975 and $16,561. They also share something else, bad reviews, so their futures are in doubt. Trophy Wife earned an average of $12,288 in seven theaters. Finally, Jane Eyre made nearly $1 million over the weekend in 90 theaters for an average of $10,778. More...

Will We Hear a Peep from Limited Releases?

March 25th, 2011

There are plenty of limited releases to talk about this week, including a few that were earning better than average buzz either due to their cast or their directors, or both. However, in a couple of cases, the buzz did not translate into strong reviews, so either these releases will have to overcome their poor reviews, or we will need one of the lesser known limited releases to have breakout success.
