2."Crazy, Stupid, Love."
Another romantic comedy about how a man can loose and then get back his wife. “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”, directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, it a witty story about straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell), who is living the dream-good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his "perfect" life quickly unravels. Worse, in today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome, thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). (Rotten Tomatoes)

3."The Devil's Double"
Based on a gripping, unbelievable true story of money, power and opulent decadence, Lionsgate’s "THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE" takes a white-knuckle ride deep into the lawless playground of excess and violence known as Bagdad, 1987. Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein's palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper) is thrust into the highest echelons of the "royal family" when he’s ordered to become the ‘fiday’ – or body double – to Saddam's son, the notorious "Black Prince" Uday Hussein (also Dominic Cooper), a reckless, sadistic party-boy with a rabid hunger for sex and brutality.
