The Casserole Club (Breaking Glass Pictures) — Available on DVD.

Wild Card of the Week

God Bless America (Magnolia) — As a huge fan of Bobcat Goldthwait’s recent work—i.e., World’s Greatest Dad and Sleeping Dogs Lie—I confess to being totally spun by this one. It’s a case where I think I’m just reading it wrong? In theory, I appreciate the concept of writing a movie in which the more liberal-minded heroes go on a killing rampage to slaughter our nation’s most obnoxious souls, but when it’s gradually revealed that our ‘heroes’ are in fact ten times more obnoxious than anyone else, the hopelessness in that message is hard for me to swallow. That said, I am still anxious to see what Goldthwait comes up with next! Available on DVD and Blu-ray.

    About freakin’ time you gave props to “Six Pack.” About freakin’ time. Now, get to work on a thousand words about “Scavenger Hunt.”
