DVD Tuesday: It's Date Night!

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Date Night wasn't a hilarious movie by any stretch (both The Office and 30 Rock are funnier), but it's the sort of mainstream comedy that the whole family can watch. While it was groundbreaking in the 80s, Max Headroom definitely shows some seams on the edges. Still, it's worth a look for curiosity's sake alone. There was no reason to re-make Death at a Funeral, and it rightly failed. Let's not bail out the producers and buy or rent the DVD of this needless film. Once upon a time the National Lampoon brand was worth something. Vacation hearkens back to a more prosperous and funnier time. Shame that it's gone. Who exactly is buying Graphic Sexual Horror and are tabs being kept on them?
