    Review: 'Our Idiot Brother' A Breezy, But Uneven Attempt To Replicate The Judd Apatow Touch

    Judd Apatow's smash hits of "The 40 Year Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up" (not to mention the countless other successful comedies stamped with his producer tag) have spawned a good handful of imitators but few ever get the formula right.

    New On DVD-- "Blitz"; Rising Star Zawe Ashton Shares Screen With Heavyweights Statham, Considine

I saw the trailer for Blitz last spring, and I was sure that it would be another in his long line of profitable "shoot-em-ups". Ba...
