Brian Regan - The Epitome of Hyperbole I first heard Brian Regan do some stand up comedy back in 1998 at "Comedy Day 98" in San Francisco Golden Gate Park.  While it was only a brief segment, Regan left me with a splitting side ache from laughing so hard.  Everything in his comedy bit was common day occurrence, and yet he put a new spin on them unlike any other comedian. Regan comes to DVD in "The Epitome of Hyperbole" in which he analyzes numerous topics, covering: reading, movies and parties, art and language, law, TV, space and marriage.  No stone is left unturned. Brian has a sense of humor that sometimes doesn't agree with the typical audience.  Some comedy bits sound like a rambling tangent, which results in a punch line that is lost in translation.  Meanwhile, other times he nails the bit.  Regan is a comedian that ...

Novak. DVD release date: August 7, 2007 It's Christmas Eve and a huge blizzard has just shut down the airport, threatening to ruin holiday plans for all stranded travelers. Snowed in en route to their father's house, two "Unaccompanied Minors"--dubbed UMs--Spencer (Dyllan Christopher) and his little sister, Katherine (Dominique Saldana), are ushered to the airport's Unaccompanied Minors Room, a holding cell for dozens of stranded, parent-free kids from all over the country. Caught in the crossfire of projectile cupcakes and juice boxes and desperate to escape, Spencer makes a run for freedom along with four other UMs, who couldn't be more different if they tried: spoiled rich girl Grace (Gina Mantegna), trailer-park tomboy Donna (Quinn Shephard), academic overachiever Charlie (Tyler James Williams) and comic-book ...

It is like the analogy of making lemonade out of lemons, and similar to houses built out of pop bottles or Howard Finster’s folk art—one man’s garbage is another man’s art supplies. B-movie directors may have daydreamed about winning regal golden statuettes named Oscar, but these four MST-d films are closer to another altogether different Oscar. They are, whether ...

Many of Hiaasen’s adult books have environmental themes, or characters deeply tied to the environment or issues surrounding land development and the protection of endangered species, so it’s no surprise that he chose to hit those hot buttons again in the book, “Hoot.” This movie shows he found kindred spirits in Wil Shriner and Jimmy Buffett, the latter a native Floridian and songwriter. Hiaasen has recently published another young adult novel, this one also focusing on the evils of big corporations and the plight of the beleaguered environment, called “Flush.”

This ninth volume of the TV program is a four-DVD set, which includes a quartet of films that are so stupid they’re entertaining.
