It's Samantha Baker's sweet sixteen birthday and no one in her family remembers the occasion. She's a typical teen -- enduring creepy freshman, spoiled siblings, confused parents and the "Big Blonde" on campus who stands between her and the boy of her dreams.

Dowd, whose constant companion is Harvey, a six-foot tall rabbit that only he can see. When Elwood's sister Veta Louise reluctantly decides to have him committed to a mental hospital, a wondrously funny turn of events occurs.

4.) Scarface (1983) | Blu-ray Release Date: August 28th, 2012

In the spring of 1980, the port at Mariel Harbor was opened, and thousands set sail for the United States. They came in search of the "American Dream." One of them found it on the sun-washed avenues of Miami... wealth, power and passion beyond his wildest dreams. He was Tony Montana. The world will remember him by another name... Scarface.
