Blu-Ray Review: Grown Ups – One extended, unfunny, in-joke comedy roast that is as disposable as it is vulgar!

Who’d have thought that Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider and David Spade would be in a film under the banner of Grown Ups? The proof is in the pudding, as the latest Happy Madison production lands on Blu-ray and DVD today.

Follow the leap for my review.

Given the cast – a rag-tag bunch of comedians known for their gurning man-child routines – it isn’t surprising that Grown Ups is far from mature. In fact, immaturity abounds as the crew verbally bash one another while Kevin James falls over as many times as possible in under two hours and everyone laughs at how outrageous Rob Schneider’s relationship with a pensioner is.

At this point my reviews usually look at plot mechanics and the subtleties of the film-making process, so this is going to have to be a short section. Grown Ups is brazen, unrefined and silly, with little in the way of nuance,

This Week on DVD: Robin Hood, The Secret in Their Eyes, The Experiment

It's a big release day for TV box sets, and not a heck of a lot else. The only major movie hitting DVD and Blu-ray this week is Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, and although I wasn't particularly taken with the film, I am slightly curious about the Unrated Director's Cut. Also out this week is the Academy Award-winning Spanish thriller The Secret in their Eyes, Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers and Neil Jordan's Ondine starring Colin Farrell, plus two direct-to-dvd releases: the remake of The Experiment starring Adrien Brody and Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming. Get your sitcom fix with new seasons of 30 Rock, Community, Modern Family, and How I Met Your Mother, or get your T&A fix with Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Do you see anything worth picking up this week?

"Calvin Marshall" (2010)

Directed by Gary Lundgren

Steve Zahn exemplifies the adage those who can't do teach as a college baseball coach who never was quite good enough to make the majors who sees something of himself in an enthusiastic but unskilled player (Alex Frost) that he keeps on the team in writer/director Gary Lundgren's feature debut.

"Chelsea on the Rocks" (2009)

Directed by Abel Ferrara

"Bad Lieutenant" director Ferrara compiles a biography of the famed Chelsea Hotel in New York through archival footage, reenactments and interviews with the many artists who have stayed there throughout the years from Milos Forman and R. Crumb to Ethan Hawke and Gaby Hoffman.

This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: September 21, 2010

The Secret In Their Eyes Winner of last year's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, The Secret in Their Eyes is this week's best option for purchase and while I think it is a good film, I'm not certain it's a film I'd recommend buying. It felt like more of a masterful episode of "C.S.I." with an impressive production budget than anything else. I never found myself fully immersed in the story as much as I was intrigued on a surface level. I recognize it as a solid piece of filmmaking, and can understand why others really like it, but it just didn't move me in the same way. 30 Rock: Season Four One of several DVDs that arrived just before I set off for Toronto, season four of "30 Rock" is one I intend to watch as soon as time allows.

“Takers” To Open American Black Film Festival; (”Stomp The Yard 2″ Will Be Centerpiece)

The American Black Film Festival (Abff) bows next month, in Miami, Fl, running from June 23 through the 26th. I’m still waiting to find out what films are scheduled to screen at the festival this year (they haven’t announced yet, but I hope they do soon); however, I just learned (via Black Voices) that Takers (the ensemble heist flick, starring Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana and others) will be the festival’s opening night film.

Also, Stomp The Yard 2: Homecoming will be the festival’s centerpiece film.

Both titles come from producer/director duo Will Packer and Rob Hardy of Atlanta-based Rainforest Films. So, those who will be present for the festival will get first looks at both films, and will then be able to report back to the rest of us.

And thanks to their tweets, I’m aware of several Nyu film school grad students whose short
