Rude Awakening
  • Rude Awakening

Rude Awakening: Season 1
The hilarious ’90s Showtime comedy about a recovering alcoholic soap star (Sherilyn Fenn) and her less-than-supportive family and friends, finally on DVD! Yes, Showtime made original series before Dexter, just with bigger hair. (Sony)

Dark Skies
When a suburban mom (Keri Russell) suspects that spacemen are coming for her annoying family, an alien expert (J.K. Simmons) and suspiciously Paranormal Activity-looking footage kinda confirm it. So … good riddance? (The Weinstein Co.)

Generation Um …
A New York City escort driver (Keanu Reeves) parties with wasted ’hos half his age (Adelaide Clemens, Bojana Novakovic) and films their rambling, naked confessionals. And squirrels. Didn’t Keanu used to be a Movie Star? (Phase 4)

A nightclub owner (Tray Chaney, The Wire) uses his girlfriend (Tila Tequila!) as bait in a scheme to rob a drug kingpin, only to have everything go more wrong than an actor from The Wire having to work with a former MySpace skank. (Green Apple)

Silver Case
A Hollywood producer (Eric Roberts) sets out to take down his archrival by sending him a mysterious silver case; Pulp Fiction-wannabe antics ensue when said case ends up with thugs. Didn’t Roberts used to be a Movie Star? (Breaking Glass)
