This Week in Netflix: Volume 31

Now that Everybody Loves Raymond is no longer available on Netflix — Thanks, Obama —  I've needed to branch out a little and find other things for Grandma to watch when I need her to settle down. I haven't come up with a good half-hour comedy replacement, but we did get through some wacky comedies that held her attention.

Grandma was fascinated by the dog -- she couldn't stop telling me how ugly it was -- and chortled with glee at the slapsticky shenanigans. I'd never seen it before, but it was filled with familiar faces and I found it cute despite being fairly predictable.

I actually saw this 1999 remake  in the theater with a date. This is another one with a lot of physical humor, which is right up her alley. I'm not sure if I've ever seen the original.

I saw this in the theater with my mom and sister. It held up pretty well -- the special effects aren't overly cheesy and the jokes are still funny. Also, it has near-peak Chase and Aykroyd.

Another remake -- I might want to see the original, just for comparison. This one has a baby Ryan Reynolds in it, though, and it's hard to beat that.
