Picks and Pans Review: New on DVD

UPDATED 07/03/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/03/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT

Failure to Launch ($29.99)
Sarah Jessica Parker is hired to woo Matthew McConaughey away from living at home (when Mom and Dad are as vivacious as Kathy Bates and Terry Bradshaw, who'd want to leave?) but (oops!) falls for him along the way. Sweet at times, but mostly contrived. Extras: Above average, with looks at real-life arrested developers and a lively chat between McConaughey and Bradshaw. Movie: [STARS 2.5] Extras: [STARS 3]

Caché ($26.96)
Is it live or is it Memorex? You never know for sure in this gripping French film about a splintering couple who receive an increasingly unnerving series of surveillance videotapes of themselves. Extras: Insightful making-of footage and an interview with director Michael Haneke (subtitled, like the film), who gleefully refuses to clear up Caché's fascinating ambiguities. (R) Movie: [STARS 3.5] Extras: [STARS 2.5]
