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.

Herbie: Fully Loaded

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


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.

Fever Pitch

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

The Skeleton Key

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

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’.

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.


Dreamworks’ quest to find a non-‘Shrek’ vehicle capable of matching Pixar continues – but ‘Madagascar’ makes for a nice distraction in the meantime.
