Crazy on the Outside Blu-Ray / DVD Combo-Pack Review

Crazy on the Outside Blu-Ray / DVD Combo-Pack Review



Synopsis: Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Ray Liotta and Kelsey Grammer lead an all-star cast in this outrageously funny comedy! When Tommy (Tim Allen) gets released from the big house, he discovers life on the outside is even crazier than it was behind bars. Tommy's eccentric sister won't get off his back, his sexy ex-girlfriend won't leave him alone, and his former partner in crime won't take no for an answer. Through it all, Tommy just might find the girl of his dreams and get convicted of love in the first degree.

Special features:
- Inside Crazy on the Outside
- Gag reel
- Digital Copy for portable media players

Review: I haven't seen anything with Tim Allen since Home Improvement went off the air.  I've enjoyed his dirty comedy specials in the past, and this looked like a slightly darker angle than he had as Tim the Toolman Taylor, so I was hopeful that we'd get an interesting movie.  I had a bit of a mixed reaction to the film, but overall it was a winner.

We sat down to watch this one and right off the bat its ackward and unconventional.  I mean that in the best of ways.  It starts out kind of strange and visual driven to eventually give way to a large amount of dialogue.  The premise is cute and in the end a little cliche.  The idea that his parole officer would fall in love with him is a bit of a stretch, but this was a cute romantic film with enough indie cred to make it interesting and worth the watch.

The blu-ray high-definition picture looks great on this film.  Its honestly something that aging actors have to dislike, because it really doesn't allow them to hide a thing.  This one can be found exclusively at Target and Super Target stores nationwide, so get out there to pick one up.  Its a fun film.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
