So You Think You Can Dance winner Benji Schwimmer joins the cast of this family comedy set in the world of ballroom dancing.

1991: The Year Punk Broke
(Geffen, $19.98)

Twenty years ago, Sonic Youth took filmmaker Dave Markey (Desperate Teenage Lovedolls) on tour with opening acts Nirvana, Babes in Toyland and Dinosaur Jr in tow. The result is an incredible document of what happened when “Smells Like Teen Spirit” changed the dominant ideas about what songs were right for radio. And because it took two decades for Broke to be released on DVD, you get more than an hour of extra concert footage as a reward.
