POP-U-Larity
($24.95 DVD, Ariztical)

Billing itself as American Idol meets Best in Show, this mockumentary follows contestants in the fictitious Penskeegee POP-U-Larity singing contest. Among those competing for $1,000 (and a year’s supply of fried chicken) is four-time champion Katrina Whitman (aided by her loyal gay assistant, Sebastian), cowboy Charlene Hornsby, and housewife Marcia Anderson (singing with her performance-artist son, Darque). Extras include outtakes, behind-the-scenes featurettes and deleted scenes.
