New Release: Flipped DVD and Blu-ray

Flipped movie sceneComing-of-age drama comedy Flipped, about two eighth graders who develop feelings for each other despite being total opposites, became available on DVD and Blu-ray/DVD combo on Nov. 23, 2010, from Warner Home Video.

Directed by Rob Reiner, Flipped stars Madeline Carroll (The Spy Next Door) as a girl who loves trees and keeps a flock of chickens in her backyard. She has had a crush on newcomer Callan McAuliffe since second grade, but he has always thought she was weird. That is until eighth grade, when he starts to think she’s cool, but she suspects he must be a jerk, because he doesn’t care about things like chickens and trees.

Rebecca De Mornay (Backdraft) and Anthony Edwards (TV’s ER) star as Callan’s parents, with Penelope Ann Miller (TV’s Men of a Certain Age) and Aidan Quinn (Jonah Hex) in Madeline’s family.

The 90-minute, PG-rated movie, which is based on the novel by author Wendelin Van Draanen, had a limited release in theaters, so for most people, the DVD and Blu-ray release was their first chance to see it.

Special features on the Blu-ray/DVD combo are four featurettes:

  • Flipped: Anatomy of a Near Kiss”
  • “The Differences Between a Boy and a Girl”
  • “Embarrassing Egg-cuses”
  • and “How to Make the Best Volcano.”

The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack also includes a downloadable digital copy and is priced at $35.99.

The DVD contains only the “Flipped: Anatomy of a Near Kiss” featurette and is priced at $27.95.
