Jennifer Lawrence took home an Oscar for her performance as a young widow in this crowd-pleasing award season darling. The film centers on Bradley Cooper as a bipolar former teacher returning home after a nervous breakdown. The fantastic David O. Russell film is as comedic as it is dramatic, and the leads have undeniable chemistry. Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, and Chris Tucker round out a terrific cast. The DVD comes with deleted scenes and three behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand muster all the spirit they can for this schmaltzy, predictable film. Streisand plays mother to Rogen, an inventor who invites her along on a road trip he has planned to sell his latest invention. Though high jinks inevitably follow, the movie is more targeted at feel-good humor than crude jokes — not to say that there aren't a few in there. The DVD includes deleted scenes and three featurettes.
