RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: American Reunion and Being Flynn
For the second week in a row, our choices on home video are drastically limited. Only one major wide release hits shelves (the latest installment of the American Pie franchise), and it's accompanied by three much smaller films: a Chinese drama with Christian Bale, a memoir-based indie featuring a strong Robert De Niro performance, and Paul Weitz's latest, which finally hit theaters after an original release date of 2007 was delayed by various complications.

Critics Consensus: American Reunion Is A Decent Get-Together
This weekend, the dream of the 1990s is alive at the multiplex: the lusty teenagers of "American Pie" are all grown up in "American Reunion," and "Titanic," the decade's biggest commercial success, gets a deluxe 3D rerelease. Who would have thought we'd see the "American Pie" kids grow and mature? Critics say that in "American Reunion," our old friends are still good company, but they're certainly not as shocking as they used to be. "Titanic" was pretty much unsinkable upon its release in 1997. This period blockbuster solidified James Cameron's status as one of Hollywood's master technicians, made superstars of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, and collected a boatload of Oscars.
