As the video box proclaims, “The Gang’s All Here” — and then some. In Lethal Weapon 4, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover reprise their roles as Riggs and Murtaugh — L.A.P.D.’s version of Abbott and Costello — as does Joe Pesci as their good-intentioned but aggravating sidekick and Rene Russo as Riggs’ better-half, Lorna. The “Lethal” family gets even larger in this sequel with the addition of Chris Rock as Murtaugh’s snarky son-in-law, not to mention babies from Murtaugh’s daughter and Lorna. How soon til we see Alfred the butler and Alice the housekeeper? (EW Grade: C) Other videos available this week:
