Jack Black and Michael Cera are Neanderthal numbskulls in this week's FOXLight DVD Release roundup. As hunter-gatherers, the unlikely duo are primitive as can be in the evolutionary send-up Year One. Joining on their epic journey is House's Olivia Wilde, David Cross and Hank Azaria. Eddie Murphy continues his dalliance with family fare as a businessman whose flagging career causes a life re-evaluation in Imagine That. Murphy then finds solace and salvation in his daughter's imaginary world. Look for a reunion with Beverly Hills Cop co-star Ronny Cox.
Nia Vardalos goes back to Greece as a tour guide who finds love with a scruffy Alexis Georgoulis in My Life In Ruins. Richard Dreyfuss co-stars as a tourist who shows her the Greek-God light.
