Check Out 'Inherent Vice' On Digital, DVD, Blu-ray And More April 28

April 25th, 2015 6:09am EDT
Inherent Vice
In "Inherent Vice," it's 1970, and paranoia is running the day when private eye Doc Sportello's (Joaquin Phoenix) ex-old lady suddenly shows up out of nowhere.

She says she's in love with her billionaire, land developer boyfriend, and that his wife and her boyfriend are plotting to kidnap him and throw him in a loony bin.

Doc knows that "love" is another of those overused words of the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," and that it usually leads to trouble, but he still loves her, so when she asks for his help, he takes the case.

Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon.

Music apps Spotify and Pandora maintained their spots in the top five, proving Jay-Z...

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widows
Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner have apologized for some comments they made about fellow star Scarlett Johansson's character Black Widow, because our oversensitive society had to find something wrong with two grown men joking around and obviously not being serious AT ALL during an interview to promote the film.
