Not a particularly great week for DVD or Blu-ray releases. The biggest movie to hit the home market is Couples Retreat, but it was a terrible movie and should be avoided at all costs. The best film coming out this week is A Serious Man and while the DVD is worth picking up, the Blu-ray is the better deal. However, the Pick of the Week goes to The Guild: Season Three, which is one of the funniest things on the Web.

Cheryl Hines makes her directorial debut with Serious Moonlight. Based on a script by the late Adrienne Shelly, it stars Meg Ryan, Timothy Hutton, Kristen Bell, and Justin Long. That's a lot of talent on both sides of the camera; however, the movie earned weak reviews and quickly disappeared at the box office. Was this an unfair result, or an inevitable one?

Fewer films reached the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart this weekend than last weekend.
The Princess and the Frog, saw its per theater average drop a minuscule 5% to $373,855, which likely represents nearly universal sellouts throughout the weekend in both theaters.
Second place went to Up in the Air with an average of $78,763 in 15 theaters.
That is an impressive start and with the film already proving itself to be an Awards Season player, its future is indeed bright.
Broken Embraces continues to perform in limited release and earned an average of $44,285 in two theaters, but it better expand fast before momentum is lost.
Mystery Team was a surprise entry in the $10,000 club earning a reported $11,259 in one theater.

Just the two limited releases on this week's list, but one of them, Up in the Air, could be a major player during this year's Awards Season. It has already picked up a prestigious award this week.
