Our Picks For This Week's Must-Rent

This week’s top five Redbox/DVD/Blu-ray picks include a romantic comedy with lots of sexy action, an emotional tale of one woman’s struggle to be a success in a man’s word and some super fine acting by Liam Neeson. Grab your honey and stay in for the night!

One for the Money

No. 1 -- One for the Money

Katherine Heigl love-hates Jason O’Mara in this sexy rom-com about a New Jersey gal who decides that becoming a bounty hunter is the best way to get her life in order. Too bad her first assignment is to hunt down her ex-lover. You do the math.

Rotten Tomatoes: 2% splat

No. 2 -- The Grey

Liam Neeson never disappoints -- especially not in this frozen drama about a man fighting his way to civilization after a plane crash leaves him stranded with a handful of co-workers. Dermot Mulroney co-stars.

Rotten Tomatoes: 79% fresh

No. 3 -- Albert Nobbs

Glenn Close first performed Albert Nobbs on stage years ago and then spent some of her own money to finance the film about a woman living as a man in order to be a success in 19th century Ireland.

Rotten Tomatoes: 55% splat

No. 4 -- Chronicle

What happens when every teenager’s fantasy of having super powers comes true? A whole mess of responsibility and terrible outcomes. This is much worse than getting your driver’s license and not knowing how to parallel park. These three teens fight to keep ahead of their apparently deadly powers.

Rotten Tomatoes: 85% fresh

No. 5 -- Rampart

The cop becomes the suspect in this action thriller starring Woody Harrelson, Robin Wright and Sigourney Weaver. Can the police officer with a troubled past and a taste for vigilante justice come out with a clean slate? Ice Cube and Ned Beatty stir it up.

Rotten Tomatoes: 76% fresh

None of these movies grabbed my attention! I was hoping to see something on this list and feel the urge to run to Red Box tonight, but that is not the case! One for the Money sounds predictable. And I have heard that The Grey was slow. Next please...
