DVD/Blu-ray: Curb Your Enthusiasm: Series 1-8 (18)

Larry David never really topped his first two Curb series, where his mystified mischief maker was at his most excruciating – the "beloved aunt" episode being a standout.

DVD: Tower Heist (12)

This uneven crime caper is full of plot-holes and clichés, but it's redeemed by a perky script, Alan Alda's convincingly shady banker Arthur Shaw, and a lovely performance from Matthew Broderick as a disgraced financier.

Olivia Buxton: People said he looked like Ben Stiller in Dodgeball

Before Movember my husband, Nick, never had facial hair – he only ever had a few days' shadow. We had our doubts that he'd be able to pull it off. He couldn't grow it that much – for a long time it didn't look like he had one. It was only in the last few days that it started looking like a moustache. But when it was done I thought it was quite becoming, though I'm not really a fan of facial hair.

Tim & Eric: Awesome Show, Great Job!, Leicester Square Theatre, London

A prominent British sketch performer once told me that "Americans can't do sketch comedy." Meanwhile, the British character comic Kevin Eldon once said: "If I see comedy which I consider, in my very judgmental little head, to be lazy or weak it actually offends me." It's these quotes that spring to mind when faced with the lack of charm and quality in this American duo's live show.

DVD: Meet the Parents: Little Fockers, For retail and rental (Paramount)

The third episode in the Meet the Parents franchise is funnier and less outlandish than the previous one (no battle-bus, no truth serum, not much Dustin and Barbra), but it lacks the universal premise that benefited the first two films.

Greta Gerwig: The queen of low-budget cinema is breaking into the mainstream with her role in Arthur

The first sign that Greta Gerwig may not be your average movie star comes as I'm striding into the lobby of the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills, 45 minutes before our scheduled rendezvous. My mobile telephone rings. Would I mind coming straight up to Greta's suite? She is running rather early, would hate to intrude on more of my Friday afternoon than absolutely necessary, and so wonders if we can crack on. Yes, you heard that right: a Hollywood actress is managing to be vaguely considerate towards another human being AND to not be late.

DVD: Meet The Parents: Little Fockers (12)

Meet the Parents had zip and some decent visual gags; Meet the Fockers wasn't as funny, but always watchable; this third slice of in-law bickering is obnoxiously dull.

Please put the camera away, darling...

When couples collaborate on screen the results are usually disastrous, says Ben Walsh. So why do they keep on doing it?

A fresh pass from the Farrelly brothers

The kingpins of dirty comedy's comeback film aims at a mature audience, but they haven't given up on gross-out gags. Gill Pringle hears how the toilet humour titans keep the laughs coming

Meet The Parents: Little Fockers (12A)

Starring: Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman

Last Night's TV: Beeny's Restoration Nightmare/Channel 4<br />Meet the Parents/E4<br />The Beauty of Diagrams/BBC4

Gawd! What a disaster. Time of economic crisis, etc etc and poor old Sarah Beeny is having problems with her stately home. How. Do. Some. People. Cope. Honestly: there's 97 rooms and everything. It's just too tough. OK, OK, enough with the jibes. Let's be serious. This is a woman in suffering – albeit in a peculiarly privileged, property-and-a-half-owning kind of way. "This is costing a fortune," Beeny pleaded. "It could easily take us down." And so, the plan: to renovate the Hall – bought seven years ago but not, apparently, all that lived in – and rent it out to weddings and parties. Just like Property Ladder, except with higher ceilings (not to say stakes.)
