After Last Season

The Art of Being Straight
Twenty-three-year-old John has just moved to L.A. from New York, ostensibly "taking a break" from his longtime girlfriend. He moves in with college bro Andy, whose pals incessantly do that kind of "That is so gay" banter that's essentially harmless -- unless you're the only gay guy in the room.

John is hardly comfortable discussing his shifting Kinsey scale placement with them, and his new job as bottom-rung gofer at a major ad agency is fraught with sexual tension as a studly boss barrages him with thinly veiled come-ons.

Starring Jesse Rosen, Rachel Castillo, Jesse Janzen, Tyler Jenich, Alan LaPolice

Away We Go
An expectant couple travels the U.S. in search of the perfect place to put down roots and raise their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.

Starring John Krasinski, Allison Janney, Jeff Daniels, Melanie Lynskey, Toni Collette, Catherine O'Hara

Downloading Nancy
When Albert Stockwell comes home from work one day, he finds a note from his wife of 15 years, Nancy, saying she has gone to see friends. After waiting several days, Albert realizes that his wife is missing.

Nancy has met her salvation on the Internet in the form of Louis Farley. Nancy and Louis, both wounded souls, take comfort in one another through e-mail, pictures and promises of perverse sexual encounters. Nancy has finally found the one and only thing that can liberate her from the pain in her life.

While she pursues the freedom that she feels will only come with ultimate liberation, Albert is left to put the pieces together and try to salvage what is left.

Starring Maria Bello, Jason Patric, Rufus Sewell, Amy Brenneman, David Brown

The Hangover
Two days before his wedding, Doug and his three friends drive to Las Vegas for a blow-out bachelor party they'll never forget. But, in fact, when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning, they can't remember a thing. For some reason, they find a tiger in the bathroom and a six-month-old baby in the closet of their suite at Caesars Palace. The one thing they can't find is Doug.

With no clue as to what transpired and little time to spare, the trio must retrace their hazy steps and all their bad decisions in order to figure out where things went wrong and hopefully get Doug back to L.A. in time to walk down the aisle.

Starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Heather Graham, Justin Bartha

Land of the Lost
Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall, sucked into one and spat back through time. Way back.

Now, Marshall has no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world -- a place of spectacular sights and super-scaled comedy.

Sucked alongside him for the adventure are crack-smart research assistant Holly (Anna Friel) and a redneck survivalist (Danny McBride) named Will.

Chased by T. rex and stalked by painfully slow reptiles known as Sleestaks, Marshall, Will and Holly must rely on their only ally -- a primate called Chaka (Jorma Taccone) to navigate out of the hybrid dimension.

Escape from this routine expedition gone awry and they're heroes. Get stuck, and they'll be permanent refugees in the Land of the Lost.

Starring Will Ferrell, Anna Friel, Danny R. McBride, Jorma Taccone, Raymond Ochoa

While opening their eyes to an exotic foreign land, she too begins to see things in new ways—finding her kefi in the process.

Starring Nia Vardalos, Richard Dreyfuss, Rachel Dratch, María Adánez, Macarena Benites, Sheila Bernette, Heather Blair, María Botto
