Top DVD releases: The Five-Year Engagement takes the cake

This week’s top five DVD releases include the romantic comedy we’ve been waiting for… or rather, the wedding we’ve been waiting for. What happens when a couple is engaged for five years — will they hear the wedding bells?

The Five-Year Engagement

No. 1 — The Five-Year Engagement

This adorable romantic comedy staring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt is about a couple who wants to tie the knot but can’t seem to figure out exactly when to do it. After putting off the wedding one too many times, they are forced to face the inevitable question… Do they want to get married at all?

Rotten Tomatoes: 63% fresh

Movie review: The Five-Year Engagement is a long road to a happy ending >>

No. 2 — Safe

We heart tough guys! Jason Statham and Catherine Chan star in this action flick about the protection of a 12-year-old girl in the New York City underworld. The film is directed by Boaz Yakin of Remember the Titans and Uptown Girls fame. Action, martial arts and adrenaline make for a wild ride.

Rotten Tomatoes: 57% splat

No. 3 — Piranha 3DD

You know you’re dying to see what could possibly happen in a third Piranha movie, no matter how cheesy it might be. The killer fish is back — this time with a vengeance for spring breakers. Arrggg!

Rotten Tomatoes: 14% splat

No. 4 — High School

What if the first time you inhale is the first time anyone ever asks if you’ve inhaled? The new kid tries drugs for the first time and now has to hatch a plan to foil the school drug test, or he won’t get a scholarship to MIT. Wackiness ensues!

No. 5 — My Sucky Teen Romance

This quirky indie comedy about two people who meet at a space convention was a recent selection at the SXSW Film Festival. When two people fall in love and one of them turns out to be a vampire, things get weird for a shy girl who just wants to find the right guy.
