March DVD Releases Have Something for Everyone
Comedy, drama and action light up the small screen on Tuesday.
March comes in with 13 new DVD releases this Tuesday and if you like comedy, drama or action, this week’s choices are for you.
Leading off the comedy releases is the Adam Sandler comedy “Jack and Jill.” In the movie, Sandler, accompanied by a star-studded cast including Al Pacino, Katie Holmes and Dana Carvey, takes on a dual role, playing both a brother and his sister.
If your comedy is more slapstick, Larry the Cable Guy’s latest film, “Tooth Fairy 2” might be more to your liking. In this DVD, Larry makes the mistake of telling area schoolchildren the tooth fairy is make-believe. But fans on in for the last laugh as Larry spouts wings and is sentenced to collect lost teeth to make up for his mistake.
