The Gourmet Guess, what’s new on DVD and how young is too young for “beauty enhancements”?
Your Gourmet Guess clue for today: This was discovered by accident when the inventor was trying to create an antiulcer drug. He licked his finger to turn a page and discovered its sweetness. (Scroll down for the correct answer.)
New on DVD today:
The Roommate (PG-13) with Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly. Leighton plays a deranged college freshman obsessed with her roommate. Our Movie Maven Ileana says skip this one.
The Rite (PG-13) with Sir Anthony Hopkins and Colin O’Donoghue. Hopkins trains a seminary student (O’Donoghue) in exorcism until Hopkins finds out he himself is posessed. Ileana calls this one a rent.
The Mechanic (R) with Jason Statham as an assassin looking for revenge after his mentor played by Donald Sutherland is murdered. Ileana enthusiastically calls this one a buy.
Ileana’s C.L.I.P. of the Week is The Other Woman (R) with Natalie Portman and Lisa Kudrow. Natalie plays a step mother trying to connect with her step son after losing her own child. Kudrow is the boy’s mom still who is still stewing about her husband’s affair and is jealous of Natalie for stealing her family. Ileana says this one is a buy.
Last week, Good Morning America followed a story of a woman who injected her eight year old with botox. She even recorded a video demonstrating how she administers the injections. The woman lied to ABC about her name and where she lives, but officials said they knew her true identity and removed the girl from the home. So, we want to know how young is too young for “beauty enhancements”?
