This week sees the DVD and Blu-ray release of "Bachelorette" starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson. This raunchy, unflinching, darkly comic indie was written and directed by Leslye Headland ("Terriers") and follows three best friends (Caplan, Fisher, Dunst) who are invited to act as bridesmaids at the wedding of a girl (Wilson) they called “Pigface” in high school.

Maybe we should watch Adult Swim more often instead of going to bed early, but thankfully we live in the wonderful world of YouTube. Late last Thursday night, the network aired "The Greatest Even In Television History" and featuring a gallery of our favorite people, and while it's a pretty awesome concept, it's even better because it lives up to the promise.

There's a fine line between delicacy and fragility, between a gentle unfolding and a stubbornly slow series of revelations. That line is what keeps Nate Meyer's "See Girl Run," a midlife romantic drama, from succeeding as well as the great cinematography and talented cast would have you hope. Robin Tunney's marriage is foundering in familiarity in New York; Adam Scott's relationship and life are stalled and stuck in the town she left behind, even as he draws elegant and joyous frogs and caricatures. So she comes home, to see her parents and her brother, and he sees her. And remembers how much he used to love her. And she remembers, too. But love is not memory, and love is not hope.

'Party Down' & 'Parks & Recreation' Star Adam Scott Joins 'The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty'

Adam Scott's career thus far pretty much defines the phrase "paying your dues." He's been working steadily pretty much since the start of his career logging time on both television and the big screen, but the last few years have finally seen his star deservedly rise. Of course, there was his stint on the criminally shortlived "Party Down" (which now is headed toward a feature film), apperances in Judd Apatow joints like "Knocked Up" and more notably "Step Brothers" and showing his range in everything from "Piranha 3D" to the indie "The Vicioius Kind." But 2012 seems to be the start of the next step in Scott's career. He's now fully fledged regular on "Parks & Recreation" (where he's tearing it a new one, see below) and has "Friends With Kids" arriving in the spring with Sundance hit "Bachlorette" arriving later in the year, and he's booked a big studio movie that will keep him busy during his hiatus from running Leslie Knope's political campaign.

There might have been better-crafted, more nuanced comedies in the last few years than Adam McKay's "Step Brothers," but we're not sure there's one we've rewatched more. Second only to the director's "Anchorman" for sheer density of laughs, it's become a frequent inhabitant of our DVD player, if only for a few scenes at a time. Rumors of a sequel continue to circulate, but in the meantime, it looks as if the film might have found a spiritual successor, with two of the film's MVPs reuniting for a similarly-themed comedy.

Watch: Attention J.J. Abrams, Adam Scott From 'Parks & Recreation' Has Some Advice For 'Star Trek 2'

If you saw J.J. Abrams' franchise reboot "Star Trek" and thought, "Nyota Uhura and Spock? Really?" you're not alone. On this week's episode of "Parks and Recreation," Adam Scott's perfectly nerdy and awkward character Ben Wyatt went on a mini-rant about the budding romance and warns Abrams about the Internet fallout that will happen if he follows through with it in "Star Trek 2." It's amazing. And Adam Scott knows what he's talking about. In case you forgot, he earned his Trekker cred as Defiant Helm Crewman in "Star Trek: First Contact." Watch below (the bit starts at 13:50).

Exclusive: Many a prematurely-canceled TV show lives on in hope of resurrection on the big-screen. This is partly due to the success of "Star Trek," originally a low-rated three-season TV show that became Paramount's biggest franchise after the success of "Star Wars". Very occasionally, it happens; Joss Whedon's cult sci-fi TV show "Firefly," became the Universal movie "Serenity," although the film didn't catch on with many beyond fans. But more often, there's a lot of talk, but very little action -- even Annyong's agent has given up hope of an "Arrested Development" movie ever happening.

We've made no secret of our love for Adam Scott in these parts, but he's somehow not quite become the massive star it feels like he's been destined to be for a while. The actor popped up as a vaguely familiar face in serious dramas like "The Aviator," "High Crimes" and, um, "Torque" (maybe not so much with the serious and the drama) in the first half of the last decade, but he then took a major about turn into comedy, stealing the show in "Step Brothers," leading ace sitcom "Party Down" and recently joining the cast of the amazing "Parks & Recreation." But at the same time, he's given some scorching dramatic performances in little-seen indies like "The Vicious Kind" and "Passenger Side," and even did the action movie thing in "Piranha 3D," leading to the impression that maybe Hollywood just doesn't quite know what to make of him.

Plus Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig & Adam Scott In 'Friends With Kids'Lots of Toronto first looks coming down the wire today, so we'll keep it brief, but two of the more anticipated comedies that'll bow at the festival just had their first official stills released. First up is "Jeff Who Lives At Home," the second mainstream picture from The Duplass Brothers, who became indie favorites with films like "The Puffy Chair" and "Baghead," proving to be standouts of the so-called 'mumblecore' scene, before getting to work with bigger names and budgets on last year's excellent "Cyrus."
