Sydney White, The Game Plan Hit DVD This Week

What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue. In addition to the titles below, you now have the opportunity to view Jessica Simpson's much maligned Blonde Ambition in the anonymity of your own home. It only goes up from there, so moving on.

The Game Plan
This family-friendly movie stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Joe Kingman, a pro football quarterback who suddenly finds himself caring for a seven-year-old girl played by Madison Pettis. She shows up unexpectedly and informs him that she is his daughter and needs a place to stay while her mom is out of town. The macho quarterback is forced to explore his softer side for the next month as he takes on his new parental responsibilities, like ballet class and homework, while also getting to know his daughter. You can imagine the hilarity that ensues from the tension between leading his team to a championship season and understanding the world of little girls.

Highlights include Kyra Sedgwick as Joe’s workaholic agent and entertaining bonus features that will be especially fun for younger kids and sports fans. Those bonus features include Stuart Scott of ESPN hosting a look at the fictional star quarterback in the film and an ESPN SportsCenter interview with The Rock on how he learned to play a quarterback for the movie. All in all a cute flick for a night in with the family.

Another family-friendly new title, so


Sydney White
A lot of you mentioned that you'd wait to watch this one on DVD, and now, here it is! A twist on the classic fairy tale, Sydney White follows a college freshman (played by the always adorable Amanda Bynes) in her quest to follow in her late mother's footsteps and pledge the Kappa Phi Nu sorority when she arrives at college. More tomboy than natural born sorority girl, Sydney is instantly faced with a serious roadblock to rushing bliss: sorority leader and student council president Rachel (Sara Paxton), who has vowed to make life hell for Sydney. Along the way, Sydney meets Tyler (Mat Long), a frat guy who takes a liking to her and moves in with seven misfit boys in an outcast frat on Greek Row known as the Vortex (get it? those are the dwarfs). This fun, satirical jaunt through college life will satisfy any Amanda Bynes craving you might have this week.

I took my kids to see The Game Plan when it came out. I actually liked it. Cheesy -- yes, but it's a kids movie, plus I love The Rock and he looks dayum fine in this movie.

Ugh. None of those speak to me. And I didn't even know Jessica Simpson did a movie called Blonde Ambition lol. I guess that's a testament to its quality right there.
