DVD Previews: Comedy Rules The Week
From high-school party film Project X, to fish-out-of-water romp Wanderlust, and the sweetly sincere Jeff, Who Lives at Home, This week’s DVD/Blu-ray releases are all about the comedy. No matter what your comedic sensibilities are, you’ll find a great film to bring home this week.
Project X: This crazy comedy, shot in a found-footage style, follows a group of friends whose plans to throw an epic party get way out of hand. The film is produced by The Hangover director Todd Phillips (check out some Hangover quotes here), and stars Thomas Mann and Oliver Cooper.
Wanderlust: Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston escape their crazy New York City lives and head to a free-love hippie commune. David Wain directed and co-wrote the film, which co-stars Justin Theroux, Malin Akerman, and Ken Marino.
Jeff, Who Lives at Home: The lives of two brothers get hopelessly entangled via a series of happenstantial events in this comedy starring Jason Segel and Ed Helms. Brotherly “mumblecore” team Jay and Mark Duplass wrote and directed the comedy. Check out our Jeff, Who Lives at Home DVD giveaway for a chance to win a Basement Viewing prize pack!
