Blu-ray Review: Strong Actresses Carry First Season of ‘2 Broke Girls’

2 Broke Girls

CHICAGOCBS’s “2 Broke Girls,” which recently had its first season released on Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of Warner Bros., isn’t about to break the mold of TV comedy. There are some sitcoms that try something new and there are others that merely fit a pattern. There’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve had buddy comedies since they started making sitcoms and while “2 Broke Girls” may be little more than a “Laverne & Shirley” update, it is well-done enough to make its familiarity easy to overlook.

TV Review: ‘2 Broke Girls’ Poised to Make a Lot of Money For CBS

CHICAGOCBS’s “2 Broke Girls” doesn’t reinvent the formula but it certainly provides laughs within it.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘American Pie Presents: The Book of Love’ Almost Entirely Free of Laughs

The Book of Love

CHICAGO – We’ve gone from apple pie to PB-and-J. No, I’m not kidding. The opening scene of “American Pie Presents: The Book of Love” features a character turning away from internet porn so he can bang his lunch. When his dog ‘joins in,’ he doesn’t stop him. Laughing yet? If you thought this straight-to-DVD franchise had hit the bottom of the barrel before, it turns out they’ve found another barrel below the false floor and it’s filled to the brim with horrible comedy.
