The story centers on FitzGerald and her husband, setting out on a yearlong honeymoon adventure backpacking around the world. Five months into the trip, their plane crash lands in Peru at a penal colony walled in by jungle, and their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying nonstop labyrinth of escape and survival. They ultimately end up on a four-log raft that separates them from the piranha-and-caiman-infested water until they finally realize that there is no way out but to swim.

The Weird Al Show debuted on CBS on September 13, 1997 as part of their Saturday morning lineup. Each episode began with the all important "today's lesson" before viewers were invited into Yankovic's underground

Sure we swooned over Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but ain't no shame in a Spike crush, too. James Marsters from Buffy and Marques Houston from Sister, Sister are just a few of the throwback '90s crushes we sort of forgot we had.

DVD Review: Chris Stokes 'Battlefield America' Teaches Predictable But Much Needed Lessons

At the start of Chris StokesBattlefield America,” we see young, bold, and tough kids dancing at an underground dance battle. Think “You Got Serve” meets Disney’s “Ant farm”. I’ve never seen such talented young dancers dance. The opening scene gives way to a lot of great energy, but it resembles more of a music video, than that of an opening scene to a film. The film’s story begins as we enter the daily life of the young and self centered Sean Lewis (Marques Houston). Shawn is a pompous prick of a man. He’s a hard working man, only if it benefits him. He’s just made partner at a prestigious La Marketing firm. One...
