Carnage: Affluent New York parents (Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, Kate Winslet) confer after a brutal playground confrontation, and their meeting turns into a drunken screaming match. Roman Polanski doesn't quite hit his satirical mark, but this is an entertaining, darkly witty comedy of manners.

The Muppets: The Muppets reunite for a benefit show to save their old theater. Thanks to star and co-writer Jason Segel's abiding affection for these characters, nearly every last bit of this endlessly entertaining musical works.
