Bitch Slap: This off-the-beaten-path film stars America Olivo, Erin Cummings and Lucy Lawless. It's about three tough, beautiful women who set out to the desert with intentions of stealing $200 million from a mob boss. This flick has got to be interesting!
Crazy on the Outside: This wacky movie stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Ray Liotta. It's a comedy about a man who has been in jail for three years and is set free. He comes back home to his family and tries to turn over a new leaf by attempting to rehash an old relationship and get his fathers business up and running.

New on DVD
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs: I can't wait to grab this movie off the video store shelf tonight! I'm hoping it will be there. This is a great children's movie that was based on the book with the same title. It is sure to please your kids AND you!
The Final Destination: If you think I'm excited about Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, that's nothing compared to how bad I want to see this flick. This movie is short and I heard that it starts off right away with very little suspense leading to the events but I have to watch it out of sheer curiosity!
Trucker: What? Why haven't I heard of this flick? This independent film tells the story about a woman who is employed as a trucker and takes care of her son while her husband (Benjamin Bratt) is in the hospital.
Fifty Dead Men Walking: This film is based on the novel of the same name that reflects the true story of an undercover agent and how he successfully got into the IRA. This thriller will have you on the edge of your seat while the main character is constantly trying to keep safe as he reports IRA secrets to Intelligence.
