The story of a balloon boy, with a much more heartwarming ending, leads this week's pack of DVD releases in the FOXLight. Ed Asner is the voice of a curmudgeonly former balloon salesman who decides to fly his entire house to South America in the latest Disney/Pixar hit, Up. He soon discovers an 8 year old stowaway, and you can guess he's none too pleased. At first.
Katherine Heigl is an unlucky in love TV Morning Show producer who gets teamed up with uber-male Gerard Butler in The Ugly Truth. Butler gets ratings, and helps Heigl, by telling "the ugly truth" about what makes men and women tick.
Ashton Kutcher is a man who uses his wares to live the high life in L.A. in Spread. Anne Heche is his sugar mama, until he meets Margarita Leveiva, the female version of himself.
