This week in new streaming video, we’ve got a Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy, an imaginative short story adaptation by Ben Stiller, one of Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed films from last year, and a bunch of new additions to Netflix. Read on for the full list:

Ride Along

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Ben Stiller stars as a reverie-prone Life magazine photo editor with problems at work: he’s derided by his boss, he’s got an unrequited crush on a co-worker (Kristen Wiig), and he can’t find an image that’s set to run in the next issue. He escapes into a globe-spanning fantasyland of his own creation — which might be just the thing that snaps him out of his rut.
