title: Zoolander (Special Collector's Edition) function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Christine Taylor, Milla Jovovich release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Most movies made from TV comedy sketches turn out to be mildly amusing at best and painful at worst. Somehow, "Zoolander" escapes this curse with surprising zest. Director/co-scripter/star Ben Stiller has a clear handle on the material, an ear for the absurd and an unexpected sweetness that make his film a lot of fun.

title: Haiku Tunnel function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Josh Kornbluth, Warren Keith, Helen Shumaker, Amy Resnick, Brian Thorstenson, June Lomena, Sarah Overman, Joe Bellan, Harry Shearer release year: 2001 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea Co-directed by brothers Josh and Jacob Kornbluth, "Haiku Tunnel" chronicles Josh Kornbluth's journey from footloose and fancy free temp to "perm" secretary for a high-powered San Francisco tax lawyer. With constant voiceovers and frequent cuts to Kornbluth himself with anecdotes and flashbacks, the audience follows the saga of Josh as he attempts to get 17 very important letters mailed with the aide of his fellow S&M secretaries. Hilarity ensues, at least for anyone in the audience who has ever worked as a temporary executive assistant.

title: Drawing Flies function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Ventura Distribution & View Askew Productions MPAA rating: R starring: Jason Lee, Martin Brooks, Jason Mewes, Carmen Lee, Renée Humphrey, Scott Mosier, Joey Lauren Adams, Ethan Suplee, Kevin Smith release year: 1996 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: one Star reviewed by: Tara O'Shea Donner and his friends are twenty-something slackers living off welfare checks in Vancouver in the 1990s when the government gravy train is abruptly cut off. Facing the unappealing prospect of telling their landlord that not only are they still short $200 from last month's rent, but this month's rent ain't gonna happen, Donner convinces his buds to hike to his uncle's cabin in the B.C. wilderness.

title: Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Dimension Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Ben Affleck, Eliza Dushku, Shannon Elizabeth, Will Ferrell, Ali Larter, Jason Lee, Jason Mewes, Chris Rock, Kevin Smith release year: 2001 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Five stars reviewed by: Mel Odom "Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back" proves Kevin Smith has got his finger on the pulse of his audience. Although his humor is crude and often offensive in this movie, as in other movies, Smith plays to his audience, inundating them with the things they took their seats in the theater to see. At the same time, Smith takes shots at people, corporations and entities that think too highly of themselves. He also ladles in a healthy serving of social commentary along the way, which is not entirely the plan but does come through in the writing.

title: Ghostbusters function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Columbia Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson, William Atherton release year: 1984 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Ghostbusters was a colossal hit when it was first released in 1984; it was fresh, inventive fun, the first big special-effects comedy, and it had been promoted brilliantly. Almost everyone loved it, and many went back to see it again and again (always necessary to ensure major hit status). It's not surprising that Columbia Home Video has produced this all-stops-out, balls-to-the-wall DVD as part of their intermittent "collector's series."
