"What Happens In Vegas"

Cameron Diaz is a jilted Wall Streeter, Ashton Kutcher's an out-of-work carpenter. The two get hitched on a drunken whim in Las Vegas then go to extremes to scheme each other out of the $3 million jackpot they won. The movie comes in a single-disc DVD with the theatrical version or a two-disc DVD and Blu-ray high-definition sets with an extended cut.

"The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning"

One of Disney's biggest animated hits gets a straight-to-DVD prequel that floats an adventure in the early days of the underwater heroine. Jodi Benson reprises her big-screen role as the voice of mermaid Ariel and Samuel E. Wright returns as mouthpiece for her best buddy, Sebastian the crab. The new flick casts them into an adventure to restore song and dance to her sea kingdom, where music has been banned.

"Heroes: Season 2"

The series about ordinary mortals who suddenly gain superpowers continues with a four-disc set packing all 11 episodes from the second year.
