Moviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" What's It About? A stuffy fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is sent on the bizarre mission to bring the sport of fly-fishing to Yemen, all paid for by a sheik. See It Because: This is about as far from your typical rom-com as you can get. A pleasant surprise from beginning to end, the movie is funny, charming and not derivative at all. We also reveled in the comedic performances of Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas. (Also Available on Redbox | Amazon Instant Video)

"Casa De Mi Padre" What's It About? It might not be as funny as it could be, but this dead-on parody of Spanish soap operas -- starring Will Ferrell and performed in Spanish -- is a great comedic experiment, that was worth attempting. See It or Skip It: See it. (Also Available on Redbox | Amazon Instant Video)

"Friends With Kids" What's It About?

"Get the Gringo" What's It About?

See It or Skip It: See it, if you can still watch a Mel Gibson movie objectively; otherwise don't bother.

"Lockout" What's It About? Guy Pearce stars in an "Escape from L.A." rip-off. Seriously, just replace "Los Angeles" with "outer space prison" and you get the same plot; it's ridiculous but whatever. See It or Skip It: Are you really waiting for a critic's opinion on this? (Also Available on Redbox DVD & Blu-ray | Amazon Instant Video)

"The Three Stooges" What's It About? The Farrelly Brothers bring the Stooges to modern times with faithfully-recreated slapstick; it plays strictly for the littlest audience members. See It or Skip It: See it, if your age is still in the single digits.
