Meet the Fockers ($29.98)
Movie: [STARS 2.5]
Extras: [STARS 3]

While no comic masterpiece, this broad sequel to 2000's Meet the Parents gets a major lift from the first-time onscreen pairing of Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand as the overly demonstrative parents of Greg Focker (Ben Stiller).
Extras: Generous helpings of amusing deleted scenes and bloopers. (PG-13)

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events ($19.95)
Movie: [STARS 3]
Extras: [STARS 3.5]

Three orphans try to evade their evil guardian (Jim Carrey) in a solid film adaptation of the macabre kids' book series.
Extras: Fully loaded, with nifty behind-the-scenes looks (including Carrey's costume tests) and outtakes. (PG)
