You know how you’ll hear something like “Two and a Half Men is the number one comedy on television!”, and you just stand there confused, because you literally don’t know a single person who has gotten through five minutes of that show? Yeah, this is like that. According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Last Song is the top-selling home video in the country.
“The Last Song” debuted at No. 1 on both the Nielsen VideoScan DVD sales chart and the research house’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ending August 22.
The Season 4 set of “Dexter” bowed at No. 2 on both sales charts. “Date Night,” which debuted at No. 1 on both sales charts the previous week, slipped to No. 3 on the DVD tally, and to No. 5 on the Blu-ray Disc chart, behind “Clash of the Titans” at No. 3 and “Kick-Ass” at No. 4.
Remember The Last Song? It’s that Nicholas Sparks movie where Miley Cyrus turns her back on a piano scholarship to Juilliard, but finds love when the local volleyball hunk helps her protect a nest of sea turtle eggs from a mischievous raccoon. I am not making this up.
“Furry Vengeance,” a family comedy that earned $17.6 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 4 on both the DVD sales and rental charts.
That’s the one where Brendan Fraser screams “MILEY CYRUS!” at a boulder. …And his nemesis is a raccoon. Whoa. Is that meta? Does America just love Miley Cyrus and hate raccoons? Forget it, I’m going back to bed.
