New DVD Releases

Leap Year (PG)

Women’s lib, apparently, never reached the land of Leap Year, in which Anna (Amy Adams) heads for Ireland so she can propose to her commitment-phobe BF on the 29th of February. In the old country, legend has it that it’s cool for women to pop the question on that day, so when Anna’s four-year anniversary comes and goes without a ring, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Even if she isn’t a liberated woman, she still knows a hot guy when she sees one — in this case, the scruffy Declan (Matthew Goode), who helps her track down her boyfriend, and might just help her find real love along the way. (Amy Adams [Anna], Matthew Goode [Declan])

More DVD Reviews

Nine (R)

Let’s hear it for the ladies! Nine is the story of drama-queen Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis), a famous film director in crisis, and the many women who in his life. Unlike most men — but perhaps like a lot of them in Hollywood — all the women in Guido’s world are jaw-droppingly stunning, exceptionally talented and have super-long legs. Did we mention this is all pretend? (Penélope Cruz [Carla], Marion Cotillard [Luisa Contini], Daniel Day-Lewis [Guido Contini], Nicole Kidman [Claudia], Judi Dench [Lilli], Kate Hudson [Stephanie])

Harry Brown

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (PG-13) (release May 5)

Director David Fincher brings F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story to the big screen in this epic tale of a man who ages backward, and experiences life’s great loves and losses with a perspective that upends our traditional notions of time and lifelines. Brad Pitt plays Benjamin with a sexy southern accent and more facility for a wheelchair than the average aged gentleman, while Cate Blanchett plays his ballerina of a lover with tenderness and a lot of barre exercises. The film racked up 13 Oscar nominations last winter, and now DVD viewers can see why. (Brad Pitt [Benjamin Button], Cate Blanchett [Daisy)

Iron Man 2

Tooth Fairy (PG)

He skateboards. He’s blue. And yes, he’s miniature, plays pro hockey and has learned how to fly. Meet the Derek Thomson (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), a muscly athlete with no patience for pretend. The powers that be finally decide to punish the dream-killer with an unusual sentence in this kid-oriented tale of wrongdoing and redemption -- albeit with non-stop sight gags and crushingly condescending humor. Bonus: Star skateboarder Ryan Sheckler makes his non-skate-movie debut. (Dwayne Johnson [Derek Thomson/Tooth Fairy], Ashley Judd [Carly], Ryan Sheckler [Mick Donnelly])
