‘Wedding Crashers’ (Blu-ray)
This champagne edition of the bubbly comedy starring Owen Wilson and Vince
Vaughn as prowling bachelors contains both the theatrical and uncorked versions. The
uncorked presentation includes a longer performance in hi-def and both offer star and
director commentaries, a music video, a making-of element and theatrical trailers.
(New Line/Warner Bros)
‘The Pistol’ Special Edition
Here is an engaging picture about the true story of “Pistol” Pete Maravich, one of
the legendary college basketball players of all-time. In a picture about following one’s
dreams, with the strong support of his parents, a skinny, undersized kid hones some
incredible playmaking skills that both astounds and infuriates some of his high school
teammates and coach. Creating a brand of “showtime” that was way ahead of his time,
young Pistol epitomizes what parental encouragement, dedication, and belief can do in
shaping a young person. Trivia, bloopers, commentary, and a making-of video are
included. (Well Go USA)
‘George Carlin: It’s Bad For Ya’

■ Fine Points of the Law: (1) By a
2-1 vote, a Florida appeals court
ruled in December that Andrew
Craissati could stop paying alimo-
ny to his ex-wife. The couple's
agreement called for alimony only
until she remarried or was quot;cohab-

Strange Brew By John Deering least three months, and Craissati
pointed out that his ex-wife,
recently convicted of a serious DUI
offense, is now quot;cohabitingquot; with
a cellmate in prison. (2) In
November, a judge at Killorglin
District Court in Kerry, Ireland,
dismissed two DUI cases because
the blood-alcohol readings were
not administered properly. The
suspects should have been isolat-
ed for 20 minutes before the test
but had been permitted to use uri-

THE ROLF method of Structural Inte-
gration, or quot;Rolfingquot;, is a hands-on
therapy for the restoration of the con-
nective tissue system, or fascial net-
work and to create more organization
in posture. This webbing of tissue
covers the entire body, and when in-
jured or compressed from postural
weaknesses, can distort into quot;holding
patternsquot; and lead to inefficient
movement and pain. Through ten ses-
sions of specific deep tissue manipu-
lation, breath and movement, the
body is brought into a more balanced
and flexible state. Call today for more
