DVD or Blu-ray? Redbox or Netflix? Streaming? Whatever your poison, we've got the highlights and lowlights on the week's new releases. Moviefone's Pick of the Week "The Interrupters" What's It About? "Hoop Dreams" director Steve James tackles the crisis of inner-city violence and the people who are trying restore peace and unity; following the CeaseFire activist organization for over a year as they try to quash Chicago's outbreak of gang-related crimes, "Interrupters" documents several cases of possible redemption -- with various results. See It Because: Steve James films some incredibly real moments of hope and despair, and while the film feels epic in scope, it hits hardest when you realize that these events are just another day for everyone involved. Also New on DVD & Blu-ray "The Rum Diary" Johnny Depp adapts another Hunter S. Thompson novel, but without any of the flair of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." See »

Jerry Lewis types one out in Who's Minding the Store?
The colorful and cluttered 1963 comedy film Who’s Minding the Store? marks the seventh of eight collaborations between star Jerry Lewis (Boeing Boeing) and director Frank Tashlin, including The Geisha Boy and Cinderfella.
Lewis plays Norman Phiffier, a professional dog walker who’s in love with the beautiful Barbara Tuttle (Jill St. John, Diamonds are Forever), an elevator operator in her parents’ Macys-like department store, Tuttles.
Disapproving of the couple and determined to break them up, Barbara’s conniving mother Phoebe (Agnes Moorehead, Citizen Kane) hires Norman to work in the store, where he is given a series of seemingly impossible jobs. But even as he takes on the difficulties of the sports department, ladies shoes section and shipping floor, Norman gets the jobs done — with slapstick to spare! »
