"Just Married" -- For Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy, it's the honeymoon from hell. For the rest of us, it's the honeymoon movie from hell. This lame mismatched-newlyweds comedy casts Kutcher as an earthy sportscaster and Murphy as a well-to-do art history major whose courtship, wedding and subsequent honeymoon in Europe are rife with slapstick and sexual hijinks.
"Deliver Us From Eva" -- Lame romantic comedy week continues with the release of this stilted bit of artifice about a hip seducer (LL Cool J) enlisted by three buddies to declaw their spouses' and girlfriends' venomous sister (Gabrielle Union), who's making the men's lives miserable.
"Narc" -- A suspended undercover narcotics detective (Jason Patric) is recruited to investigate the slaying of another cop and paired with the victim's overzealous partner (Ray Liotta). The dark thriller is highlighted by terrific performances from the two leads. Writer-director Joe Carnahan and his editor provide commentary. DVD, $29.99. (Paramount)
