LEMONY SNICKET'S - A SERIES - OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS : Dear Viewer If you enjoy movies filled with singing rabbits, exploding spaceships, or cheerleaders, you are holding the wrong DVD entirely. This movie is extremely alarming, an expression which here means "a thrilling misadventure involving three ingenious orphans and a villainous actor named Count Olaf (Currey) who wants their enormous fortune." It includes a suspicious fire, delicious pasta, Jim Garrey, poorly behaved leeches, on incredibly deadly viper, Meryl Streep, and the voice of an imposter named Jude Law. The only things that could make such a spectacle more upsetting are special features, such as commentary by me or outtakes involving nervous laughter. I am bound to continue my research into the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, but you are free to seek lighter fare, like bleu cheese fondue. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket.
HOTEL FOR DOGS : Comedy is unleashed in this box office hit that "will have you begging for more." When Andi (Emma Roberts) and Bruce (Jake T. Austin) need somewhere to hide their dog, Friday, they transform an abandoned hotel into a place where no stray gets turned away. Loaded with adorable dogs, a team of clever kids and ingenious gadgets, this heartwarming adventure will leave you wondering - who let the dogs in?
ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES : It's love at first fright when Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) welcome a new addition to the Addams household - Pubert, their soft, cuddly, moustached baby boy. As Fester (Christopher Lloyd) falls hard for voluptuous nanny Debbie Jilinsky (Joan Cusack), Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) discover she's a black-widow murderess who plans to add Fester to her collection of dead husbands. The family's future grows even bleaker when the no-good nanny marries Fester and has the kids shipped off to summer camp. But Wednesday still has a Thing or two up her sleeve...
IMAGINE THAT : What if your daughter's imagination was the secret to your success? When a highly competitive money mogul (Eddie Murphy) finds his financial kingdom slipping, he turns to his 7-year-old daughter (Yarn Shahidi) and her fantasy world of imaginary princesses for help. Embarking on a whirlwind journey of comic proportions, father and daughter are about to discover that sometimes all you need is a little imagination - and a lot of love.
MOUSEHUNT : You'll delight in this hit comedy that critics call "a roaring good time for kids and adults." Down-on-their luck brothers Lars and Ernie Smuntz (Nathan Lane and Lee Evans) don't think much of the crumbling old mansion they inherit... until they discover that their dilapidated estate is actually worth millions. But before they can cash in, they've got to rid the house of its single, stubborn occupant: a tiny and tenacious mouse. What might seem like child's play becomes an epic battle of hysterical proportions.
