This month’s newbies run the gamut, from a Jake Gyllenhaal-led remake of the cult Patrick Swayze action flick Road House to a new faith-based family drama series starring angel-touched legend Roma Downey. In between, there’s fresh stand-up, crime thrillers and a once-in-a-lifetime dinner party with celebrity chef and humanitarian José Andrés.

Ricky Stanicky, R

It’s always fun to see scheming guys get their comeuppance – and that’s the central thrust of a raunchy new comedy about three now-grown childhood buds (Zac Efron, Andrew Santino and Jermaine Fowler) who hire a washed-up actor (John Cena) to play the imaginary pal they’ve used for decades as an alibi for their secret boys-weekend getaways and bad behavior. But they’re not prepared for the mayhem created by the suddenly real Ricky Stanicky – or how easily Cena seems to meddle into their personal and professional lives.

Coming March 12

Boat Story

Fans of quirky British thrillers should dock with this six-part series about two cash-strapped strangers (Daisy Haggard and Paterson Joseph, 59) who stumble on a shipwrecked boat full of cocaine, then decide to sell it themselves and split the proceeds. But can they outmaneuver the cops, masked gunmen and a well-dressed mobster dubbed the Tailor? (The show streams on Amazon’s free ad-supported Freevee service.)

Frida, R

Dinner Party Diaries With José Andrés

Spanish-born chef José Andrés, 54, has won acclaim for his cooking, popularizing the idea of small-plate dining to American diners, but also for his humanitarian work helping to feed people impacted by natural disasters and war. Now he’s hosting a special where he enters the kitchen with stars like Jamie Lee Curtis, 65, Bryan Cranston, 67, and O’Shea Jackson Jr. for a tasty blend of food and conversation.

Coming March 21

Road House, 

The 1989 Patrick Swayze action film gets a 21st-century update, with Jake Gyllenhaal playing a world-weary former UFC fighter who takes a job as a bouncer at a Florida Keys dive bar that seems to attract a very aggro clientele. Brace yourself for bare-knuckles brawling.
