This might be the right week to grab a new DVD.

With The Love Guru and Get Smart rolling out this week, it might be the best weekend for an outdoor activity that we could ever hope for.
For cinephiles everywhere, it's time to catch up on what's been out for a while that you forgot to see or didn't have time because you've seen Iron Man too many times. Okay, maybe that's just me.

Besides good casting, the Get Smart remake looks like a terrible idea with a big budget managed to get good actors. This one is directed by the guy who made the only bad Naked Gun installment, the three weakest Adam Sandler comedies and a bunch of collaborations with Tom Arnold. Written by the guys who wrote Failure To Launch. How could this go right?

Mike Myers is trying too hard. That might sum up The Love Guru completely. A tinge of racism and a lot of stupid puns cushioned by some of the lamer jokes from the Austin Powers movies. That is about what I'm expecting after seeing the glut of previews and commercials that have been overloading the TV and previews at the theaters.

You'll have to wait for Tuesday, so it won't help for this weekend, but In Bruges comes out on DVD next week. That is the most entertaining bet in the near future.
