Movie parodies and the Wayans Family go together like dumb and dumber in this week's FOXLight DVD Release roundup.
Once the bread and butter of the Zuckers, who brought you the Airplane! and Naked Gun movies, now it's the Wayans who follow up the Scary Movie franchise with Dance Flick, taking on genre touchstones Step Up, You Got Served, and even Flashdance. Only this time, the laughs are supposed to be intentional. Non-Wayans' cast members include Amy Sedaris, Chris Elliott and Shoshanna Bush.
Jason Statham returns as Chev Chelios, hitman extraordinaire who brings literal meaning to the term "heart-stopping", in Crank 2: High Voltage. This time out Statham chases a Chinese mobster all over L.A. in pursuit of his fake, plastic heart. Also starring Dwight Yoakam, Amy Smart and Bai Ling.
Also out this week... Cuba Gooding, Jr. is Ben Carson who, growing up in a single-family home overcomes really bad eyesight and a really, really bad temper to become one of the leading neurosurgeons in the world, in Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. Joining Gooding in the made-for-cable-TV feel-gooder is Kimberly Elise and Aunjanue Ellis.
And TV shows premiering on DVD this week include:
Comedy siblings The Office: Season 5 and Parks and Recreation: Season 1
Comedy classic, at least when I was growing up, Mr. Belvedere: Season 3
Crime thriller Criminal Minds: Season 4
Sci-Fi smash Fringe: Season 1
Reality hit Dog The Bounty Hunter: Best of Season 5
And complete series sets, featuring every single episode, of the recently cancelled Worst Week and Harper's Island
