I have plenty of DVD helpings to keep you occupied through the weekend (even beyond!). In addition to these big releases, season three of Gossip Girl and season two of 90210 also hit shelves today, so it's easy to play catch up before Fall TV starts back. Better get started!
The Back-Up Plan
Jennifer Lopez tries to de-glamorize herself as an expectant mom trying to make it work with a new guy (oh, and he's not her sperm donor, a la The Switch). Alex O'Loughlin stars as said dreamboat, but even the attractiveness of the two stars can't give this rom-com any sense of Hollywood escapism. Instead, it harps on the difficulties of pregnancy and relationships (whenever it's not relying on cliched birthing gags). DVD extras include a few deleted scenes.
Lost: The Complete Collection
If you've been feeling Lost withdrawal like I have, the season six DVD and the full six-season collection are both now available so you can pick apart every Easter egg from the very beginning. However, if you don't feel like re-watching the same old stuff, then I have one word for you: extras. The bonus features on the box set include over 30 hours of material (that means the Lost epilogue!), a behind-the-scenes tour of Oahu where the show filmed, a tribute to the past characters who died on the island, and "Lost Slapdowns" featurettes starring celebrity Lost fans like the Muppets. Hooray!
