Sometimes you have to watch what your lady likes, and that’s why they invented romantic comedies. Couples Retreat is like a romantic comedy times four, which should get you off the hook for a nice long while. It helps that Vince Vaughn and Jason Bateman star, so this movie can actually be a win-win for everyone. The special features include an alternate ending, deleted scenes, extended scenes, a gag reel, featurettes and more.

A Serious Man has become a seriously big deal now that it’s got an Oscar nod. Will it win? No, of course not, but that doesn’t make it any less of an addition to your Coen brothers movie collection. It comes with a few extra features, too, including a featurette called Becoming Serious, a featurette called Creating 1967, and Hebrew and Yiddish for Goys. Good stuff, people. Avatar’s got nuthin’ on this.
