New on DVD & Blu-ray: 'Safety Not Guaranteed,' more
'Safety Not Guaranteed'
Based on a real classified ad about going back in time, this indie comedy follows a Seattle reporter (Jake Johnson of TV's "New Girl") and a pair of interns (Aubrey Plaza of "Parks and Recreation" and newcomer Karan Soni), as they head off to investigate the legitimacy of the advertisement. They find out it was placed by Kenneth (Mark Duplass of "Your Sister's Sister"), who firmly believes that he has gone back in time before and that he'll do so again. Plaza's character goes undercover to investigate Kenneth and finds out there's a lot more to his story. I'm not going to spoil anything here, but I will say this: There is a real ending to this film, not a cheap cop out - and it's definitely a talker. (DVD, $30.99; Blu-ray, $35.99)
'That's My Boy'
Adam Sandler keeps churning out movies, many of them awful ("Jack and Jill," "Just Go With It"). His latest, "That's My Boy," isn't the worst, though it is pretty disgusting. Sandler stars as Donny, who, as a kid, slept with his hot teacher and got her pregnant. Two things happened: He became a minor celebrity, and raised his son alone while, still being a youngster himself. Jump to the present, where his son (Andy Samberg) is successful and wants nothing to do with Donny. But Sandler's loudmouth, in need of some fast cash, crashes his offspring's wedding weekend. You'll laugh, but you might also turn it off. (DVD, $30.99; Blu-ray, $35.99)
Director Wes Anderson returns to do what he does best: Creating odd, quirky characters and putting them in funny, often charming situations. If that's your thing, then you'll heart this film (starring Ed Norton, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray). (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $34.98)
'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted'
What will these kooky zoo creatures do next? They're off to Europe! (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $39.99; Blu-ray 3-D/Blu-ray/DVD combo, $54.99)
As far as horror films go, this flick about tourists taking an "extreme tour" of Chernobyl - from "Paranormal Activity" creator Oren Peli - is a somewhat effective chiller, if you can get past the bland, generic characters. I'll say this: Chernobyl is an awesome location for a horror film, but honestly, I think I'd rather watch a documentary about this abandoned land. (DVD, $28.98; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $35.99)
'2016 Obama's America'
I'm not interested in a political debate, so I'll just say that this is available. (DVD, $19.98)
The film that everyone saw in 3-D in theaters finally gets a 3-D Blu-ray edition so you can enjoy the giant blue alien adventure at home. (Blu-ray 3-D/Blu-ray/DVD combo, $39.99)
