Sherwood Forest's most famous resident has gotten a variety of screen treatments, but Russell Crowe and his frequent director Ridley Scott take a decidedly glum and joyless approach to the saga with this 2010 iteration. Robin arrives in Nottingham and falls for Marion (Cate Blanchett), widowed by the death of his former commander, King Richard. The audience, along with Robin's men, doesn't have a lot to be merry about this time around.

Deliver Us From Eva
The funniest thing about this 2003 comedy is its punny title, which has us wondering which came first, the title or the character. As romantic comedies go, file it under "Pretty Woman" Did It Better: Dudes hire a professional escort for their meddling sister-in-law to keep her out of their wives' hair, and he ends up having some very unprofessional feelings for her. Gabrielle Union and LL Cool J star.
Bet on Your Baby
In this new episode, parents try to predict how many presents a pair of twins can unwrap in one minute, how many spins a little guy can make in 30 seconds and where a youngster's ball will land when hit from a tee. Winning wagers earn money for the children's college funds. Melissa Peterman hosts.
Parolee Cameron Poe's (Nicolas Cage) trip home on a prison transport plane is interrupted by fellow passengers bent on going free without benefit of parole. As authorities on the ground debate blowing up the hijacked plane, Poe is up there trying to protect a female guard from the resident serial rapist and watching out for a fellow parolee who's in need of insulin. John Malkovich, Rachel Ticotin and Ving Rhames also star in this wild 1997 thriller
It could be deemed the gender flip side of "Showgirls," but director Steven Soderbergh's effective 2012 drama about male strippers has more going for it -- particularly its basis in the actual experiences of star Channing Tatum. Here, he plays mentor to someone just entering the trade (Alex Pettyfer), and there's plentiful bumping and grinding. And less-than-plentiful clothing. Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer ("White Collar") and Joe Manganiello also star.
Austin City Limits
The British alternative rock band Radiohead takes the stage, performing songs from its 2011 album "The King of Limbs." The set list includes "Bloom," "Daily Mail," "Myxomatosis," "Magpie," "Paranoid Android" and more.

Often seen in action-driven fare ("Star Trek," "Unstoppable"), Chris Pine does a nice job in this much more personal 2012 comedy-drama about a salesman who gets lots of surprises when his father dies. Not the least of them is the sister (Elizabeth Banks) he never knew he had. Pine and Banks offer fine, deeply emotion-based teamwork -- a "must" for this story -- in a cast that also includes Michelle Pfeiffer and Olivia Wilde.
A high-school reunion has five old friends taking stock of their lives in this 2011 comedy, which steers clear of the cliches common to such a plotline. Channing Tatum stars as the former golden boy who still wants closure with the girl who got away (Rosario Dawson) -- and the feeling is mutual. Chris Pratt portrays a former bully who wants to make amends to his victims ... whether they like it or not. Max Minghella and Justin Long also star.
Body of Proof
Tim DeKay ("White Collar") guest stars in this episode as the father of a girl whose death Megan and Tommy (Dana Delany, Mark Valley) are investigating. It looks like an extreme case of child abuse, but he and his wife (Margaret Easley) claim their daughter was possessed, and the devil killed her. The mother begs Megan to keep her surviving child from suffering the same fate in "Lost Souls."
