CHICAGO – There is such a unique array of DVD titles this week that we couldn’t just let them get buried on our desk like so many minor titles do over the year. At least one of these has to be of interest to you. Maybe even the Dane Cook movie.

All four titles were released on February 28th, 2012

Starring: Trish Stratus

Running Time: 79 minutes

Synopsis:
Wrestling champion and fitness icon Trish Stratus explodes onto the screen in her feature film debut Bounty Hunters. A thrilling and sexy ride through crime-infested streets where everyone has a price. Jules (Stratus) and her team of mercenaries struggle to make ends meet until they find what seems like an easy job: deliver a mob informant to the police and claim a $100,000 reward. But the mob has its own proposition and gives Jules a choice: hand over the captive and walk away with a million dollars or face death at the hands of the underworld’s finest. Now Jules and her group must use every fighting skill they possess in a brutal, all out battle for survival.

Special Features:
o Interview With Trish Stratus
o Epic Fight: Behind The Scenes
o Trailer

“The Catechism Cataclysm”

Starring: Steve Little and Robert Longstreet

Running Time: 81 minutes

Synopsis:
Father Billy (Steve Little, HBO’s Eastbound & Down), an eccentric young priest, is forced to take a sabbatical by his superiors when he is discovered telling inappropriate parables to his flock. Billy tracks down his high-school idol Robbie (Robert Longstreet, Septien, Great World Of Sound), who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip. On the water, the two men reminisce about Billy’s days as the keyboardist in a Christian band and Robbie’s as a guitarist for a metal band. When night approaches, they realize they have lost their way - and that’s when things get weird. Storytelling in all its forms is skewered in 2011’s Sundance favorite The Catechism Cataclysm, a divinely bizarre and funny tale that infuses stories within stories until the lines between the Bible, Mark Twain, and campfire tales are hilariously blurred.

Special Features:
o Commentary With Director Todd Rohal, Steve Little and Robert Longstreet
o Short Film: Sasquatch Birth Journal 2
o Outtakes
o Trailer
o Japanese Trailer

“The Myth of the American Sleepover”

Starring: Clare Sloma, Marlon Morton, Amanda Bauer, and Brett Jacobson

Running Time: 96 minutes

Synopsis:
In the tradition of free-wheeling tributes to adolescence like Dazed & Confused, The Myth Of The American Sleepover follows four young people (a cast of brilliant young newcomers in their feature film debuts) on the last night of summer - their final night of freedom before the new school year starts. The teenagers cross paths as they explore the suburban wonderland they inhabit in search of love and adventure - chasing first kisses, elusive crushes, popularity and parties - and discover the quiet moments that will resonate as the best of their youth. Writer/director David Robert Mitchell crafts a tender coming-of-age drama that’s at times both heartwarming and truthful.

Special Features:
o Theatrical Trailer

    CHICAGO - Look past the cheesy carbs and b-boy poses, this shiny mo-cap reboot of cartoon juggernaut “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” offers slick entertainment that makes for a welcome surprise for middle school fare. Proving that executive producer Michael Bay has both grown up but it still frightfully in tune with what jazzes teens, this surprise box office hit is indeed a nice slice of a blockbuster spectacle, whether or not a viewer cares about the turtles or not.
