Movie suggestions please?

I'm looking for some movies to watch with my mother. I'm 31, she's in her 60's.

Please suggest movies that are somewhat new to DVD as I'm adding them to my Netflix queue.

We both like thrillers, comedies, dramas. No love stories or anything with a lot of sex. No horror.. thrillers are good, like murder mysteries... but not gory horror.
