'Nobel Son'


A man's (Alan Rickman) receipt of the Nobel Prize makes his aimless son (Bryan Greenberg, "October Road") a kidnapping target, since the money that goes with the award is quite appealing to the abductors, in this darkly humorous film.

Only problem? Dad won't pay up, so matters become a lot more complicated for all involved. Also in the cast are Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse"), Shawn Hatosy, Danny DeVito, Bill Pullman, and spouses Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.

DVD extras: audio commentary by cast and crew members; deleted scenes; alternate ending. ** (R: AS, P, GV)
