<em>I Love You, Man; The Class; Icons of Screwball Comedy: Vols. 1 &amp; 2</em>

I Love You, Man(Paramount, $29.99)Starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, this film about the importance of male bonding “has its heart in the right place,” said The Seattle Times. Writer-director John Hamburg incorporated the usual juvenile gags into a pseudo-romantic comedy, minus the typical “Mars vs. Venus conflict.”

The Class(Sony, $28.96)This adaptation of François Bégaudeau’s novel, about a teacher in inner-city Paris, is a “vibrant example of humanist cinema,”­ said the Los Angeles Times. The film explores the classroom as a “microcosm of society in which prevailing tensions and inequalities are crystallized.”

Icons of Screwball Comedy: Vols. 1 & 2(Sony, $49.92)The eight films in this collection may not be “classics,” but are still “breezy, boozy fun,” said Entertainment Weekly. Starring Irene Dunne, Fred MacMurray, and others, lesser-known titles such as Theodora Goes Wild will bust your gut with their “clinking highballs and dizzy misunderstandings.”
