The shockingly successful romantic comedy What Happens in Vegas, starring Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz, leads off this week's DVD Tuesday. Also debuting: Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden?, Morgan Spurlock's chronicle of his fruitless search for the world's most infamous fugitive terrorist; Postal, the latest critic-pleaser from German director Uwe Boll; and Josh Hartnett's indie drama August.

Our DVD pick for the week is Redbelt, David Mamet's gritty exploration of the world of mixed martial arts fighting. But don't just take our word for it; Redbelt's also received the endorsement of ReelzChannel's esteemed Leonard Maltin, who'll be featuring it as one of his selections on this week's episode of Secret's Out.
Getting tired of the choices lately at the movie theater? We are too. This period between the end of the year Oscar fare and the start of summer is always a bit slow, but early 2008 has felt particularly lacking. Last weekend offered a bit of fresh air, but this weekend's offerings are looking pretty stale once again.
But never fear... Next weekend the onslaught begins and our Fan*Tastic Summer Movie Guide takes you through all the biggest releases of summer 2008. If you've been living in a cave, you might not have heard about a little superhero movie called Iron Man. It's out next week and we will have a review to let you know the scoop early next week. For the ladies, hearthrob Patrick Dempsey stars in Made of Honor, which also releases alongside Iron Man on May 2.
And after that? Well, May alone should offer at least a few intriguing titles for just about any movie fan. There's the wild action of the Wachowski's Speed Racer, the battle of the sexes What Happens in Vegas, Prince Caspian, Sex and the City and, of course, we can't forget the return of Indiana Jones!
We'll have tons of great coverage to lead you through the summer movie season including our Fan*Tastic Summer Movie Guide, exclusive material, early reviews and clips from the movies. But trust us, don't distress, because moviegoing is about to get fun again! Posted 04.24.08 by reelz
Leads Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher have their best friends in place for What Happens in Vegas... The romantic comedy about two strangers who wake up after a drunken evening Vegas to discover they are married and have won a huge jackpot--and subsequently try to find out how they can avoid sharing the winnings with each other--has now added The Daily Show alum Rob Corddry and Boston Legal's Lake Bell to the cast.
And Saturday Night Live alums Chris Parnell and Rachel Dratch have joined the cast of Harold, the comedy about a prematurely balding high school student (Spencer Breslin). Parnell will play the gym coach who torments Harold, and Dratch the teacher who forces him to take off his hat--thus alerting the world to his condition.
Finally, Third Rock From the Sun's Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed on to play the lead in The Frog King, a romantic comedy about a young, underpaid New York publishing assistant who loses his girlfriend and tries to win her back. It will be directed by Sex and The City's Darren Star.
The Frog King was adapted from Adam Davies' 2002 chick-lit-ish novel of the same name (we LOVED it) by Bret Easton Ellis--the man who wrote American Psycho and Less Than Zero. Sounds like a quite odd pairing, but we are going to hope for the best.
Gordon-Levitt is currently cast in Uncertainty, an indie from David Siegel and Scott McGehee (Bee Season, The Deep End).
