Nigel's mother appears to have been the world's worst cook, boiling unopened cans of food to a soggy pulp and nervously refusing young Nigel's suggestions that she try an occasional fresh veg. After many a ruined dinner they fall back on that old reliable, toast-the one dish she has mastered. But Nigel loves her dearly, and is devastated by her early death, leaving him and his lonely dad to look after each other. When new cleaner Mrs. Potter arrives, her curves, charms and fabulous lemon meringue pies quickly bewitch Nigel's father, and, much to his son's horror, the three move to the country to live together. The one silver lining is Domestic Science class at Nigel's new school, where Nigel can finally shine. Soon he and Mrs. P. have embarked on a highly competitive cooking duel, vying for Dad's affections

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for December 20th, 2011

December 20th, 2011

Christmas is less than a week away and there are a few releases that would make great last minute gifts. There are also very few releases overall so expect a short list this week. These great last minute gift ideas include Midnight in Paris on DVD or Blu-ray, Dolphin Tale in 3D Combo Pack and Futurama: Volume Six on DVD or Blu-ray. However, for Pick of the Week, I'm going with Warrior on Blu-ray Combo Pack. It's a great movie and there are plenty of extras on the DVD and the Blu-ray includes a Picture-in-Picture track. More...
