“This Is Patrick Swayze” spotlights some of the late actor’s most celebrated films, including “Ghost” and “Dirty Dancing.” But the documentary is just as interested in proving Swayze was even more macho in real life than he was on the screen, taking blows to the ribs during “Road House” fight scenes and jumping out of planes for “Point Break.” Demi Moore and Minnesotan Kelly Lynch are among those still in awe.

Aisling Bea is the writer and star of “This Way Up,” a brilliant new comedy about an English teacher who leans on sarcasm while recovering from a nervous breakdown.

Whether they’re bickering about boyfriends or butchering the Cranberries’ “Zombie,” their love for each other shines through. So do the laughs.
