MGM Contemporary Comedies in February

MGM Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of four contemporary comedies making their Region 1 DVD debut on 12th February 2008. Old college friends get together and share laughter, tears, nostalgia and make new discoveries, all the while making absolute fools of themselves in the British comedy Peter’s Friends, directed by Kenneth Branagh, written by comedian Rita Rudner and starring an ensemble cast including Branagh, Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie among others.

The funny, touching and irreverent romantic comedy Some Girls follows Patrick Dempsey as Michael, who travels to Canada to visit his girlfriend Gabriella, played by Jennifer Connelly, only to discover some unexpected and bizarre twists about her family that force him into an exploration of love and relationships.

Writer-director Paul Shrader brings Elmore Leonard’s satiric novel to the screen with Touch, a comic lampoon on the American evangelism industry featuring Skeet Ulrich, Bridget Fonda, Christopher Walken and Tom Arnold. A teenage science nerd gains telekinetic powers in the screwball comedy Zapped! starring Scott Baio and Willie Aames.
