This Week In Home Entertainment: The Guilt Trip, The Notebook And Silver Linings Playbook
This week’s big release, hands down, is Silver Linings Playbook. Full of A-list actors, and lauded by critics and awards committees alike (with some disagreement, as well as some overlap), David O. Russell’s film about two dysfunctional individuals developing an intricate friendship under odd circumstances wowed at the box office, pulling in $232 million worldwide. Starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence and featuring a supporting cast offering the likes of Robert DeNiro, Chris Tucker, Jacki Weaver, and John Ortiz, the film was eventually nominated for eight Academy Awards, winning one.
The Starz and Anchor Bay release is available on DVD and on Blu-ray in a 2-disc combo pack that comes with plenty of bonus features. Some are basic, including the deleted scenes and a featurette on the movie. However, some are a little quirkier, like the movie itself, including a “Dance Rehearsal” and a segment that teaches fans to dance like Pat & Tiffany.
While Silver Linings Playbook may be the bright spot in this week’s releases, there are plenty of other releases, from comedies to TV seasons, that may pique your interest. Read on to learn about some of April 30th's best releases, and maybe even a few that may have slipped under your radar.
