Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

About as hilarious as you’d expect a life on the game to actually be.


It might be a bit too old and creaky to consider leaving the ground in nowadays, but there are still plenty of belly-laughs to be had in this early one from the ‘Naked Gun’ blokes.


Lipstick lesbianism and awful acting are the order of the day in this semi-enjoyable spy caper.


If the Academy ever see this one, they’ll be campaigning for Jamie Foxx to hand his Oscar back at the earliest possible opportunity. ‘Stealth’ is awful.

Herbie: Fully Loaded

A needless addition to a franchise that should have stayed right where it was: the scrap yard.

Fever Pitch

An entertaining rom-com about a relationship in need of a sporting chance.

The Island

It’s loud, proud, and moves at a hundred miles an hour – and it’s also the most mindlessly enjoyable flick of 2005. Check your brain cells at the theatre door and enjoy a trip to ‘The Island’.

The Skeleton Key

Don’t bother opening the cinema door to this pile of hoodoo hokum.

Das Wunder von Bern

It’s nice, but less than miraculous. Here’s hoping the 2006 World Cup is a bit more exciting than this!

Mayor of the Sunset Strip

This attempted look inside the life of the music industry’s number 1 name-dropper fails to gaze deeply enough.
