Raised by loving adoptive parents, San Francisco private investigator Wyatt Hunt never had an interest in finding his birth family — until he gets a chilling text message from an unknown number: "How did ur mother die?"

Breakdown by Sara Paretsky
When the teenage daughters of some of Chicago's most influential families discover the body of a ritually-murdered victim, investigator Warshawski explores theories that the killing is linked to a hostile media campaign against a senatorial candidate or a wealthy patriarch's childhood in Nazi-occupied Lithuania.
The Hangover Part II (DVD)
Two years after the bachelor party in Las Vegas, Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu's wedding. Stu's plan for a subdued pre-wedding brunch, however, goes seriously awry.
A comedy centered on the life of Kate Reddy, a finance executive who is the breadwinner for her husband and two kids. When Kate gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, Richard also wins the new job he's been hoping for and both will be spreading themselves even thinner. Complicating matters is Kate's charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer, who begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation.
