Comcast On Demand today is premiering a big batch of entertaining new movies for you to dial up, kick back and check out. There’s the hit Tina Fey/Steve Carell comedy Date Night, as well as Chris Rock’s ensemble yukfest Death at a Funeral and the coming-of-age story Diary of a Wimpy Kid. There’s also a very interesting indie movie starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny called The Joneses that you should see. Take a closer look at all of these films below.


Date Night
Tina Fey and Steve Carell are a married couple rundown by their routine and their children. Their attempt to have a speical date night in the city goes crazy when they impulsively decide to swipe someone else’s unclaimed reservations at a fancy restaurant. That turns into a case of drastically mistaken identity and lands the unsuspecting couple right in the middle of a dispute between dirty cops and drug dealers.


Death at a Funeral
Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Danny Glover, Loretta Devine, James Marsden, Luke Wilson, Keith David, Peter Dinklage, Columbus Short and Regina Hall star in this comedy remake about a family whose patriarch has died with a completely unexpected secret life which threatens to be revealed at the wake, resulting in a mad scramble to cover it all up.


The Joneses
Demi Moore and David Duchovny are Kate and Steve Jones, the heads of an attractive new family that’s just moved into an affluent suburb and drawn the eye of their neighbors. Behind their lovely front door, however, is a sales team designed to do just that – be attractive and affluent in order to sell their lifestyle and the products that go with it. Despite their amazingly cynical job descriptions, this fake family can’t suppress their desires for something real, and that’s when things start to go awry.


Diary of a Wimpy Kid
A middle-school student launches a bunch of ‘get-cool-quick’ schemes in an effort to survive the humiliations of junior high, but they all wind up in disaster as he and his friends get picked on by jerks.
