Dig The DVDs: Superbad, The O.C., The Wire

Superbad – Extended Cut
With Superbad, Seth Rogen came into his own to claim the crown as this year’s comedy kingpin. He and frequent partner Evan Goldberg wrote the script in hopes of capturing the quintessential high school movie, in which three loser teens try to score alcohol to impress some girls at a party. Of course, things go south quickly. One of their clique, Fogell, whose fake ID claims Hawaiian heritage and the single-name moniker “McLovin’,” is accosted in a stick-up at the local store. The responding cops (Rogen and Saturday Night Live‘s Bill Hader) take him under their drunk-driving-wing, while the others are forced to steal beer from the violent host of another party. All ends in disaster for the boys, but not for the audiences, who are treated to verbal pyrotechnics worthy of Richard Pryor. Michael Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Rogen and Hader share an easy camaraderie, and have unparalleled ad-libbing skills. A literate and incredibly funny, if also X-rated, display.

The O.C. – The Complete Series Collection
Chrismukkuh is here, so it’s a good time for people of all faiths to absorb the antics that impressed the TV nation back when Josh Schwartz‘s SoCal soap made its initial dent. Every generation needs its Dallas (seen Dirty, Sexy, Money?), and the gorgeous young people of Newport Beach wove in and out of each others lives (and beds) on a regular basis. The 92 episodes on these 28 discs contain all the haughtiness, conniving, and angst that an uppercrust bedroom community can muster. But there was always something mildly romantic about the turns taken by Seth Cohen and his pals. The polar opposite of Judd Apatow’s Freaks & Geeks crowd, they wrung their very privileged hands over innumerable decisions (stay or go, stay or go?), flaunted their LaCoste sophistication, and reflected all the teenage worries that their viewers though t they too, were experiencing themselves. Why do you think all that hyper poignant pop music made it to the soundtrack each week? Long live melodrama. Long live Marissa.

This mega box is the bomb, an O.C. universe loaded with outtakes, bloopers, widescreen shows, beach couture featurettes, and star commentary. Some zealots find an embarrassment of riches the only option. California here we come!

Britney Needs Booty, Drunk Dials K-Fed

by

britneyspears1204.jpgFinally – proof that Britney Spears is a HUMAN! The always-wasted singer apparently wanted a little Federlove for her birthday (what, $30,000 in furs wasn’t enough?) and made a call to her ex asking him to join her in celebrating her b-day. She wanted some ex sex! A source revealed that Brit had to use pal Paris’ phone because she couldn’t find her own (too many mojitos, maybe?). A source revealed that, “She begged him to come out with her, [but] Kevin reminded her that one of them needed to be a parent and take care of the boys. Then she hung up on him. Kevin said she was drinking.”

Is the Fed-love really that good? It’s too bad Kevin wasn’t at Brit’s recent video shoot, because maybe that would have motivated her to go. Britney almost bailed on the shoot, and only went – 12 hours late – when she learned that her label was going to give it to another singer on the label. Not wanting to be outdone by eager up and comer, Samantha Jade, Brit got off her ass and schlepped to the vid. Who knew they could repurpose shoots like that? Sounds like Jive isn’t willing to let Britney waste their money anymore. [NYP. Getty]

Hottie of the Week: Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey
Photo_20x9_1 All Mariah Carey Pics

The world would be a poorer place without Mariah Carey. The R&B princess works tirelessly for our collective amusement (today, for instance, sees the release of The Adventures of Mimi, the starlet’s concert DVD that features a performance from 2006). In 2005, she released The Emancipation of Mimi, the best-selling record of the year, and was named the sixth richest woman in entertainment, according to Forbes magazine, as of last January. The lady’s worth around $225 million, which, unless you’re Bill Gates and/or the Federal Reserve, is nothing to sneeze at. She’s currently at work on her next studio album, due out in the spring. But that’s not why we’ve included her here, today. No, the reason why she’s made our Hottie of the Week list is because she’s totally delectable. And that episode of Cribs, when she was on the StairMaster in lingerie? That’s been burned into our brains. Permanently.
