This Week's New Movies: "21 Jump Street," "Casa de mi Padre," "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" & More

"21 Jump Street," "Casa de mi Padre," and "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" lead this week's new films.

21 Jump Street
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star in this clever, funny and touching (no, really!) big-screen adaptation of the TV show that made Johnny Depp famous, about a team of youthful looking undercover cops sent to a high school to bust a drug ring. In theaters everywhere, read our review and watch the trailer

Casa de mi Padre
Will Ferrell stars in this Spanish-language goof on the telenovelas, about a once proud Mexican family that's caught in the crossfire of a drug war. In limited release, read our review and watch the trailer

Detachment
Adrien Brody stars in writer-director this film from Tony Kaye ("American History X") that's little more than an angry polemic about the state of education in America. Brody is brilliant, and we agree with Kaye's general thesis. In limited release, read our review and watch the trailer

Jeff, Who Lives at Home
Jason Segel is the titular layabout whose mother (Susan Sarandon) begs him to the hardware store. On his way there he encounters his estranged brother, who suspects his wife is cheating on him, so they spend the day watching her. From wirter-directors Mark and Jay Duplass ("Cyrus"). In limited release, watch the trailer

Gerhard Richter Painting
A documentary about the artistic process of one of the greatest living painters. In limited release, watch the trailer

Kid With a Bike
From the Dardenne brothers comes this coming-of-age tale of a young boy who is abandoned by his father and lands in the care of a hairdresser. In French with English subtitles. In limited release, watch the trailer

Natural Selection
Rachel Harris stars as a barren housewife who learns that her dying husband has an illegitimate son, and hits the road to bring him home to say goodbye to his father. In limited release, watch the trailer

Seeking Justice
Nic Cage stars as a husband whose wife is the victim of a brutal attack. When a mysterious stranger, played by Guy Pearce, offers to exact revenge, Cage suddenly finds himself indebted to very dangerous men. In limited release, watch the trailer
