<em>Whatever Works; Monty Python: Almost the Truth; On the Road With Charles Kuralt: Set 1</em>

Whatever Works(Sony, $27.96)Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Larry David ­essentially plays Woody Allen in the director’s most recent film—a “match made in misanthrope heaven,” said The Philadelphia Inquirer. In this “most satisfying” comedy, David’s caustic New Yorker falls for a “baton-twirling runaway” from the South (Evan Rachel Wood).

Monty Python: Almost the Truth(Vivendi, $39.99)“Get the comfy chair” out for this six-hour documentary tracing the history of the British comedy troupe, said The Washington Post. Reunited a quarter-century after their last film, the surviving high priests of absurdity recount their experiences with “tenderness and loyalty,” as well as good-natured bickering.

On the Road With Charles Kuralt: Set 1(Acorn Media, $39.99)It’s easy to see why CBS reporter Charles Kuralt was sometimes called “the common man’s poet,” said the Chicago Daily Herald. Here, 76 of the beloved journalist’s Sunday-morning On the Road segments are collected, including “wonderful stories” about Maine shipbuilders, hippie bikers, and Louisiana barflies.
