NEW YORK – "Starsky and Hutch," "The Big Bounce" and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" are new on DVD in today's Foxlight.
Some people think Ben Stiller is still-born career-wise -- they say he always plays the same guy. New on DVD this week, the same guy he's playing this time is '70s fluff fare star David Starsky, in the big-screen misfire "Starsky and Hutch." (search) With Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Snoop Dogg on board, this one should have been a lot funnier.
But is it as bad as the other Owen Wilson film new on DVD this week? "The Big Bounce" (search) was a big dud at theaters. Even with the usually bulletproof Morgan Freeman co-starring. An Atlanta paper gives it a D-plus and says it's definitely not worth going to a theater to see. How about your living room? It's a caper film that can't figure itself out.
Finally, "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" (search) leaves me with a confession. Didn't see it. But Lindsay Lohan had to make something before "Mean Girls." Big music budget doesn't help. Sorry Lindsay. Like everything else bad that happens to you, blame your dad.
