Mill Creek Entertainment announced it first wave of August releases this past week … all priced attractively for consumers looking for summer viewing enjoyment.
On Aug. 5 look for double-disc DVD collections of the Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser comedy hit series, Mad About You: The Complete First Season and Mad About You: The Complete Second Season.
On the same date everyone’s favorite nanny with an attitude, Fran Drescher, will be available in The Nanny: Season One and The Nanny: Season Two (both are two-disc SKUs).
Also streeting on Aug. 5 is the DVD debut of director Henri Charr’s Dove Approved Bigfoot comedy, The Big Goofy Secret of Hidden Pines.
12 years ago Howard (Kevin Grant Brown) and Jill (Elizabeth Lambert) were out hiking in the woods when they came across a baby Bigfoot and did the only sensible thing … they took it home. They named him Bertie (Sam Rhodes) and basically adopted him as their son to be raised right along side their daughter Ally (Ashley Brinkman).
With the exception of some incredibly large feet (hence the name) and the propensity to grow hair that would make Cousin Itt of the Addams Family envious, Bertie is more or less your normal high school teenager. The deception seems to have paid off … but things are about to change!
When the mayor of Hidden Falls gets wind of an actual Bigfoot living in the area — and the revenue that could be generated — the search is on and it will take some fast thinking by Bertie’s family and friends to keep him from being a tourist attraction!
Lastly Aug. 5 also brings to kidvid collections to the DVD market place. Bo on the Go, Move, Groove & Grow! and Dennis the Menace: Lights! Camera! Menace! are both three-disc collections featuring hours of animated adventure and priced at just $12.98 each.
On Aug. 19 Mill Creek Entertainment will be serving two Blu-ray double features priced at just $14.98 each. S.W.A.T., teaming Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell, is paired with Basic, starring John Travolta and, yes, Samuel L. Jackson!
The other double feature includes director James Mangold’s no-escape horror tale starring John Cusack, Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet, Alfred Molina, Clea DuVall, Rebecca DeMornay and Jake Busey, Identity … which is double-billed with director Nimrod Antal’s backwoods thriller, Vacancy, starring Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale.
