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.

Knocked Up
If you somehow missed one of this year's best comedies, now's your chance to laugh and cringe your way through Knocked Up, Judd Apatow's summer success. I absolutely loved this movie all about two unlikely lovers who suddenly find themselves pregnant after a one night stand. There's plenty of raunchy humor and disgusting/hilarious sight gags, but also a lot of warmth and heart.

And there are plenty of extra features, confirming my theory that the more popular the movie, the more extras on the DVD. Some of these include deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, "Line-O-Rama" (lots of alternate takes) and audio commentary with Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen and Bill Hader, among others. Or, if you're the kind of Knocked Up fan who wants more, there's a 2-disc unrated "collector's edition" which boasts a variety of salacious goodies, like "Judd Apatow's Video Diaries," the raunchier deleted and extended scenes and a featurette of Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen wandering through Las Vegas titled "Stripper Confidential."

Two more new releases if you

This horror/thriller from Exorcist director William Friedkin finds Ashley Judd playing Agnes, a lonely woman whose new man (Michael Shannon) becomes convinced that the government has injected live bugs into his blood. The play on which the movie is based is terrifying, so I can only imagine what Friedkin did with the film version.

"My Name Is Earl" — Season Two
For all you "Earl" fans, here's another 4-disc DVD set for your collection. The discs include all the episodes from Season Two and a handful of extras, like a blooper reel, deleted scenes and audio commentary from various actors including Jason Lee, Giovanni Ribisi, Jaime Pressly and Amy Sedaris. According to TV Squad, who reviewed the DVD set, the commentaries provide little tidbits like "Paul the sleepwalking guy is played by an assistant director," and "Beau Bridges was bitten by a gerbil on the set." In addition, there is apparently a mock trailer for a telenovela version of the show called "Las Passiones De Catalina."

i don't get the hype with knocked up. i just didn't think it was that funny. it was funny and entertaining enough, and i loved seeing katherine heigl, but it isn't worth getting the dvd to see it again, at least not for me.
