Audio clip:

Tyler Perry hasn’t had a film in the FOXLight DVD release roundup in, oh, like five minutes. So, he rectifies that lapse with Madea’s Big Happy Family, donning the wig and dress once again to rally the family around a member suddenly taken ill.  Loretta Devine, Bow Wow and ‘Old Spice’-man Isaiah Mustafa co-star.

A high school rite of passage gets Disney-fied in Prom, with Aimee Teagarden going for prom perfection, Thomas McDonell standing in her way, and other tales of insecurity and anticipation…albeit, sanitized versions…

A little documentary that’s burning up the Amazon pre-sales chart, Forks Over Knives follows two doctors who discover through research how heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes and other chronic ailments could be prevented, or even reversed, by adopting a whole foods-plant based  diet.
