“Casa de mi Padre”: A goofball Spanish-language parody of the cheesily over-dramatic telenovela form, with Will Ferrell as the dimwitted son of a Mexican rancher, caught up in romance, sibling rivalry, drug-dealing and mystical communion with a talking white mountain lion. (1:24, R for bloody violence, language, and some sexual content and drug use) • • •

“Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”: British rom-com, heavy on the whimsy, about a fisheries department bureaucrat (Ewan McGregor) and a sparky London marketing whiz (Emily Blunt) thrown together to work on the cockamamie concept of stocking a Yemeni waterway with upstream-swimming fishies from the U.K. (1:52, PG-13 for some violence and sexual content, and brief language) • • •

“The Three Stooges”: Mo, Larry and Curly stumble into a murder plot while trying to save their childhood orphanage. (1:32, PG for slapstick action violence, some rude and suggestive humor including language) • • • 1/2
