Movie Mom

On DVD This Week

posted by Nell Minow

DVD pick of the week: The Adjustment Bureau is thought-provoking, exciting, and swooningly romantic. Writer/director George Nolfi takes on the biggest questions of all — faith and doubt, fate and free will, God, love, the meaning of existence — with an absorbing story about who we are and why we do what we do.  I have a copy to give away, so send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Adjustment Bureau” in the subject line, and don’t forget your address.

Also out this week:

Cedar Rapids “Hangover’s” Ed Helms stars as a small town insurance guy who goes to the title “big city” for an industry convention and suffers some hilarious misadventures in this very adult comedy.

“Happythankyoumoreplease” is a smart and endearing indie from writer/director Josh Radnor of television’s “How I Met Your Mother.”

    Thank you for recommending Happythankyoumoreplease — smart and endearing it was — my husband and I enjoyed it very much. Other readers might want to know that it’s R rated – so a high school and up movie. But sweet and optimistic, with a great soundtrack.

      I’m so glad you watched it, Pam! I enjoyed it so much and really love recommending movies on DVD that people may have missed in the theaters. And yes, it is definitely R rated.
