Home Video Releases for December 16

Stores may be full of Christmas shoppers looking for the perfect gift. But unfortunately video shelves are a little sparse this week when it comes to new releases.

Tina Fey and Jason Bateman star in the R-rated movie This Is Where I Leave You—a story about a dysfunctional family that gathers for their father’s funeral. To honor his last request, they have to spend a week together under the same roof.

The 1982 comedy Tootsie releases in a Blu-ray Special Edition today. Dustin Hoffman plays an out of work actor who decides to dress as a woman in order to get a part on a popular soap opera. Unfortunately he finds himself dealing with sexism and a chauvinistic boss in the workplace. The movie was originally rated R but has since been re-rated PG.
