In this reteaming of "Juno" talents, director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody, Charlize Theron is front and center as a newly divorced novelist back on the prowl in her hometown.
However, it's comedian and former "King of Queens" co-star Patton Oswalt who steals the show as her smitten confidant, who very willingly lets her lean on him as she schemes to win back her now-married ex-beau (Patrick Wilson, "A Gifted Man"). Elizabeth Reaser ("Twilight") also stars. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Reitman, cinematographer Eric Steelberg and first assistant director and associate producer Jason A. Blumenfeld; deleted scenes. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
