  • Calendar Girls [2003] Calendar Girls | DVD | (09/02/2004) from £2.26  |  Saving you £13.70 (76.20%)  |  RRP £17.99

    In the sensible yet elegant hands of actresses Helen Mirren and Julie Walters, Calendar Girls walks a fine line between sappiness and snickering and ends up both wonderfully funny and gently touching. When her best friend Annie (Walters) loses her husband, Chris (Mirren) cooks up a scheme to commemorate him: they and their friends--all fiftysomething women--will make a nude calendar to raise money for the hospital where he died. The calendar becomes hugely popular, but the success may drive a wedge between the two women's friendship. Based on a true story, Calendar Girls carefully balances the stories of several women as it follows the calendar's media explosion, becoming a surprisingly moving fable of loss, determination and the perils of fame. And let's face it--Helen Mirren is one of the wittiest and sexiest women alive, clothes on or not. --Bret Fetzer

  • Shallow Hal [2002] Shallow Hal | DVD | (18/11/2002) from £2.90  |  Saving you £14.98 (83.30%)  |  RRP £17.99

    After a succession of hugely successfully movies of a lower brow nature, Shallow Hal finds the Farrelly Brothers attempting a slightly more thoughtful film, albeit still tied up in their trademark toilet humour. It's an approach that is not unproblematic but not unsuccessful either, resulting in a film that engages the emotions in a manner that the likes of Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin and There's Something About Mary never suggested possible. Jack Black is the Hal of the title, a man whose less than commendable attitude to women is suddenly altered by the rather credibility-stretching plot device of a chance meeting with a hypnotist. Henceforth Hal is only capable of seeing the beauty within, a development that allows for much humour at the expense of the less fortunate in the name of some sort of social comment. From it all, however, emerges a quite touching love story with Paltrow's character Rosemary and proof that the Farrellys do have something of a sensitive side--no matter how deep it may be buried. The ending may be woefully predictable, but such is the deftness of touch with which the story is told, that it is still the one we are all rooting for. This is a sickly sweet film in the truest terms. On the DVD: Shallow Hal comes with a plethora of extras on disc, including a series of mini-documentaries and TV specials, all of which plug the film but offer very little insight. That does come, however, from the handily subtitled directors' commentary, which demonstrates clearly the clash of cultures occurring in the movie. As well as commenting on the physical appearance of every female cast member who passes before the camera, the brothers also pay touching tribute to a colleague who passed away during the shoot and seem to know the name of every single extra and crew member who worked on the project, surely a rarity in these days of big budgets and faceless studios. There is also a large selection of deleted scenes, also with added commentary, a perfunctory music video from Shelby Lynne and a documentary on some of the technical aspects of the film. --Phil Udell

  • The Holiday [Blu-ray] The Holiday | Blu Ray | (25/10/2010) from £6.39  |  Saving you £11.60 (64.50%)  |  RRP £17.99

    As a pleasant dose of holiday cheer, The Holiday is a lovable love story with all the Christmas trimmings. In the capable hands of writer-director Nancy Meyers (making her first romantic comedy since Something's Gotta Give), it all begins when two successful yet unhappy women connect through a home-swapping website, and decide to trade houses for the Christmas holiday in a mutual effort to forget their man troubles. Iris (Kate Winslet) is a London-based journalist who lives in a picture-postcard cottage in Surrey, and Amanda (Cameron Diaz) owns a movie-trailer production company (leading her to cutely imagine most of her life as a "coming attraction") and lives in a posh mansion in Beverly Hills. Iris is heartbroken from unrequited love with a cad of a colleague (Rufus Sewell), and Amanda has just broken up with her cheating boyfriend (Edward Burns), so their home-swapping offers mutual downtime to reassess their love lives. This being a Nancy Meyers movie (where everything is fabulously decorated and romantic wish-fulfillment is virtually guaranteed), Amanda hooks up with Iris's charming brother Graham (Jude Law), and Iris is unexpectedly smitten with Miles (Jack Black), a super-nice film composer on the downside of a failing relationship. --Jeff Shannon

  • Get Over It [2001] Get Over It | DVD | (01/04/2002) from £3.99  |  Saving you £16.00 (80.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Get Over It has one of the most inventive title sequences for years: glum Berke (Ben Foster), dumped by his girlfriend, walks down the street oblivious to the singers, brass band and cheerleaders who are performing the title song behind him. Unfortunately the rest of the film does not live up to it's opening promise, but along the way writer R Lee Fleming Jr and director Tommy O'Haver create a pleasant enough adolescent, romantic comedy with some fine gags. An accident-prone date's demolition of a sushi restaurant is a splendidly engineered piece of slapstick and Berke's permissive parents (Swoozy Kurz and Ed Begley Jr), who work as sex education experts, offer scene-stealing performances. Berke's pursuit of "his" Alison leads him into the school play--a musical version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Kirsten Dunst plays the sweet-natured girl waiting for him to see sense, and manages to makes something charming out of a rather dull part. Martin Short overdoes things as the show's writer/director.On the DVD: Get Over It is presented on disc in widescreen 2.35:1 and with Dolby Digital 5.0 sound, which does full justice to the musical numbers at the film's climax. It comes with an extended outtakes sequence--including many different versions of Martin Short's scenes, some deleted scenes and alternate takes and cast bios. --Roz Kaveney

  • Along Came Polly [2004] Along Came Polly | DVD | (05/07/2004) from £2.35  |  Saving you £15.64 (86.90%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Opposites are forced to attract in Along Came Polly. Ben Stiller is a newlywed insurance risk-assessment analyst whose wife (Debra Messing, in a throwaway role) betrays him on their honeymoon. His uptight, play-it-safe lifestyle (which includes acute aversion to germs and irritable bowel syndrome) makes him seemingly incompatible with the spontaneous, free-spirited Polly (Jennifer Aniston), but writer-director John Hamburg (whose writing credits include the previous Stiller hits Meet the Parents and Zoolander) is determined to give them at least the appearance of romantic potential. No such luck. You will, however, get a few laughs from supporting players Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bryan Brown, and Alec Baldwin. The film is a dose of featherweight fluff that could've been better and could've been worse--surely no pairing of Stiller and Aniston can be a complete waste of time, right? Faint praise, perhaps, but fans of these mainstream funny-folk will enjoy this movie as a lazy weekend distraction. --Jeff Shannon
