New on DVD – Vacation, Inside Out and more

Vacation DVD coverIt’s a good time for DVD releases this week, with Hollywood comedies such as Vacation and She’s Funny That Way available starting today, as well as the small budget comedy/horror The Final Girls.

If you’re looking to entertain the kids, the animated hit feature Inside Out from Disney Pixar and the animated short film Toy Story That Time Forgot – featuring all your favorite characters from the big screen Toy Story movies – are now available on DVD. Also for the younger set, the live action adventure The Young and Prodigious T.V. Spivet is being released.

If you prefer thrillers, check out Dark Places, starring Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Chloë Grace Moretz.

Vacation is a sequel to the original National Lampoon’s Vacation, but this time it’s Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) who’s taking his family on an outing. All grown-up with a wife (Christina Applegate) and two sons, Rusty surprises them with a cross-country trip to Walley World, just like his dad (Chevy Chase) did years earlier. Unfortunately, Stone Crandall (Chris Hemsworth), Rusty’s ridiculously handsome but irritating brother-in-law, is along for the ride.
