"The Promotion," a comedy starring Seann William Scott, left, and John C. Reilly, has a few chuckles but isn't as sharply honed as it probably should be.
The following DVDs will be released Tuesday:

"How to Rob a Bank" (Genius, $19.95) — Nick Stahl and Erika Christensen star in this comic caper thriller about slackers who try to pull off a complicated heist. — Not rated, probable R (violence, profanity)

"Lagerfeld Confidential" (Koch, $29.98) — Rodolphe Marconi's 2007 documentary profiles fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld and includes cameos by Nicole Kidman and others. — Not rated, probable PG (adult themes)

"Married Life" (Sony, $28.96) — ***Despite some sexual material, this darkly comic dramatic thriller is smart, old-fashioned entertainment. Pierce Brosnan stars. — PG-13 (vulgarity, brief sex, drugs, mild profanity) —Jeff Vice, Deseret News

"The Promotion" (Genius/Weinstein, $19.98) — ** 1/2While it has a few chuckles, this workplace rivalry comedy starring Seann William Scott and John C. Reilly isn't as sharply honed as it probably should be. — R (profanity, vulgarity, brief drugs, violence, slurs, brief sex) —Jeff Vice, Deseret News

"Reprise" (Disney/Miramax, $29.99)— ***This literate Norwegian import is a bit sullen, which means it will be an acquired taste for some audiences. Norwegian with subtitles. — R (profanity, sex, brief nudity, drugs, brief gore, violence, vulgarity, slurs) —Jeff Vice, Deseret News
