The Skinny
($24.99 DVD, Breaking Glass Pictures)

In this new release from Patrik-Ian Polk (Noah’s Arc, Punks), a clique of queer, black college pals reunite in New York for a Pride weekend filled with  bad-news boyfriends, STD scares and worse. It’s familiar territory for the writer-director, but cameos by Polk regulars Seth Gilliam, Darryl Stephens and Wilson Cruz make it feel more like a family reunion than a rerun. (The soundtrack, which features original songs by the multi-talented Polk, is also a blessing.) The director’s cut DVD includes deleted scenes, commentary by Polk and more.

NEXT: Do you remember the remake of Total Recall?
