All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue. In addition to the following movie picks, the sixth season of 24 is now on DVD if you wish to relive that particular experience.
This Apatow-produced comedy is bawdy, fun and hilarious. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera star as best buddies facing the end of their senior year at high school. For one fateful night they team up with the goofy yet supremely confident Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) — who obtains a fake ID that says his name is simply McLovin — to party, get girls and generally live it up before graduation. The boys find themselves having crazy funny and bizarre misadventures, all with a raunchy tone a la American Pie (but much funnier).
The special features for this film sound like a ton of fun, from the gag reel to the cast audition footage (clips from the auditions of Michael Cera, Jonah Hill and Christopher Mintz-Plasse) to something called "Michael's Voicemails from Jonah."
Another recommended new title if you read more
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
This third in the Pirates trilogy was a huge crowd pleaser this past summer. In the last of the swashbuckler series, Will (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) team up with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) to liberate our beloved Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and travel to Singapore to confront a scary Chinese pirate played by Chow Yun-Fat.
If you obtain the two-disc set of the film you'll find a solid offering of extras, including several featurettes on the film's production, interviews and a blooper reel.
