Country Strong, The Paranoids, Rachel Zoe Project, Sockville, Whitney Cummings

New DVD releases Tuesday, March 12


Country Strong
A has-been country singer (never-been singer Gwyneth Paltrow) goes on a post-rehab comeback tour with an up-and-coming skank (up-and-coming skank Leighton Meester). Both the tour and this movie seem ill-advised. (Screen Gems)

The Paranoids
A broke, mentally ill screenwriter discovers that his successful childhood pal has created an exploitative TV series, called The Paranoids, based on him. Then he’s left alone with his pal’s beautiful girlfriend. Again, ill-advised. (Oscilloscope)

The Rachel Zoe Project: Seasons 1 & 2
Bravo’s hit (?) reality series about the misadventures of celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and her “project”: A deadly space laser with which she’ll rule the world! Actually, she just yells at her assistant a lot. (Millennium)

Sockville: Dusty Bunny Corral
In the gritty tradition of True Grit and 3:10 to Yuma, Sockville: Dusty Bunny Corral is a gun-slinging, blood-spattered Western that teaches children ages 1-4 the true dangers of revenge and lint traps. (Cinema Epoch)

Whitney Cummings: Money Shot
Comic Whitney Cummings rips on relationships, men, women, porn and more—and, naturally, strippers. “You want me to be emotionally unavailable? And take your money? I’ve been doing that since we met.” (Image)
