Audio clip:

Moe, Larry and Curly return to lead this week’s DVD releases in the FOXLight, with the Farrelly Brothers-directed reboot of The Three Stooges, which went through many iterations before finally landing on the winning trio of Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes and Will Sasso, plus a little sinister Jane Lynch and Larry David thrown in for good measure…

Guy Pearce is a wrongly convicted ex-government agent whose only chance of redemption is rescuing the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from prison in Lockout

Jennifer Westfeldt and Adam Scott are the last two single and kid-free in a group of friends including Maya Rudolph, Jon Hamm, Chris O’Dowd and Kristen Wiig, and they decide to grudgingly join the crowd in Friends With Kids

A rare Will Ferrell failure, he decided to go for a Mexican western parody, filmed entirely in Spanish with English subtitles, as a rancher set to save the failing family ranch from falling into the hands of Mexican drug lord Gael Garcia Bernal in Casa de mi Padre.  No wonder he took to the Conan O’Brien show the very next week to announce there will be an Anchorman 2

And a visionary shiek seeks to bring salmon fishing to the desert, getting Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor to make it happen no matter what the cost, in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, from the makers of Chocolat and Slumdog Millionaire.
