New on DVD & Blu-ray: Bobcat Goldthwait, 'The Vow', more
amNewYork celebrates 'Police Academy'
Eagle-eyed readers might notice that we're having a bit of a "Police Academy" week here at amNewYork. Just Monday, we previewed Steve Guttenberg's book signing at Barnes & Noble Upper West Side Wednesday, and Tuesday I'm reviewing Bobcat Goldthwait's new stand-up DVD, "You Don't Look The Same Either." Novelty aside, the sometime-odd-voiced comic (it's a gag used in a limited amount here) delivers a seriously funny, honest and a bit raunchy set that'll keep you giggling and guffawing. And he references "Police Academy" a lot. Let's see if we can sneak vocal sound-effect master Michael Winslow in the paper Tuesday. (DVD, $14.98)
