Savages, The Watch

New DVDs Tuesday, Nov. 13


  • Universal
  • Savages

Three friends (Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and Blake Lively) grow and sell the best weed in SoCal and everything’s cool—but then the Mexican cartel (run by Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro) moves in and demands to partner up. Not cool. (Universal)

The Watch
Four buds (Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayaode) form a neighborhood-watch team in dull suburbia just in time for a hostile alien invasion; wacky action, 1,200 dick jokes and (best of all) a blowed-up Costco ensue. (Fox)

2 Days in New York
Talk-radio journalist Mingus (Chris Rock) and his photographer girlfriend Marion (Julie Delpy) are the most annoying clichés in New York City—until her obnoxious family drops in unannounced from France. Hasn’t NYC suffered enough? (Magnolia)

A Beer Tale
When two brothers inherit the family brewery, they set out to formulate the ultimate ale—until one of ’em decides to go after a girl, instead. You know it’s a comedy because they’re the Frankenstein brothers, and no one chooses love over beer. (MTI)

Two fabulous vampire BFFs (Krysten Ritter and Alicia Silverstone) are suddenly faced with the choice between eternal clubbing and partying or, blech, love. What the hell is going on this week? Oh: It’s an Amy Heckerling joint. (Anchor Bay)
