  • Norbit [2007] Norbit | DVD | (09/07/2007) from £3.73  |  Saving you £16.26 (81.30%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Eddie Murphy stars and stars in this very broad and raucous comedy that finds the Oscar-nominated Dreamgirls actor revisiting the multiple-character shtick that worked so well for him in Coming to America and The Nutty Professor. The latter's makeup-effects artist, Rick Baker, once again transforms Murphy into a variety of grotesques and caricatures, including the hugely fat, monstrous Rasputia, the Asian Mr. Wong, and the timorous Norbit, a nervous orphan raised by Wong and married to Rasputia. The latter, a member of a construction family with a plan to turn Wong's orphanage into a strip club, is a relentlessly narcissistic shrew who puts the screws on Norbit at every turn, especially when he rediscovers his love for an old friend, Kate (Thandie Newton). Kate's wish to buy and maintain the orphanage herself is secretly compromised by her fiancé (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who is in cahoots with Rasputia's family and using Norbit to further their agenda. Extraordinarily silly, frequently crude and mean-spirited to an extreme, Norbit is far more sour than The Nutty Professor. But there are moments of inspiration, especially a wedding interrupted by wannabe pimps who launch a profane gospel groove, and a dog that talks to Norbit while he is semi-conscious. For the most part, though, Norbit impresses as a technical marvel utilizing careful shot design and skillful editing. Murphy participates in several remarkable, three-character scenes in which he happens to be all three characters, and those moments move so briskly it's easy to forget one is looking at a comic stunt. --Tom Keogh

  • Miss Congeniality 2 - Armed And Fabulous [2005] Miss Congeniality 2 - Armed And Fabulous | DVD | (11/07/2005) from £3.66  |  Saving you £15.33 (80.70%)  |  RRP £18.99

  • Rat Race [2002] Rat Race | DVD | (04/11/2002) from £5.89  |  Saving you £12.10 (67.30%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Rat Race ought to be far less enjoyable than, in the end, it is. Studded with C-list stars, it has a heartless and derivative premise: a group of no-hopers racing across country for a stash of money for the amusement of a casino owner (John Cleese) and a group of high rollers who will bet on anything. Yet their adventures along the way are inventive: for example, lost in the desert Cuba Gooding Jr ends up stealing a coach only to find it full of Lucille Ball impersonators who go "Waaah!" in chorus whenever anything goes wrong. Even the slapstick is inventive: director Jerry Airplane Zucker and writer Andy Breckman do interesting things with hot-air balloons, a narcoleptic Rowan Atkinson, emergency organ transporters and Hitler's Mercedes Benz. All of the characters, from Breckin Meyer's smugly careful lawyer to Seth Green's shabby little con man, discover in the end that they have hearts, that some things are more important than money and that sometimes it is the journey that matters. Of course, these are all colossal sentimental clichés and yet the film has a sweet-natured quality that sells them to us. On the DVD: Rat Race is presented with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and Dolby 5:1 sound that delivers all of the snappy dialogue clearly. It comes with generous extras, including a gag reel, the theatrical trailer, an outtake where Seth Green completely fails to keep a straight face, a good-humoured interview with writer and director, a disappointing making-of documentary and some deleted scenes (with a couple that should not be missed). --Roz Kaveney

  • The Dish [2001] The Dish | DVD | (12/11/2001) from £23.40  |  Saving you £-9.41 (-67.30%)  |  RRP £13.99

    When released in 2000, The Dish achieved the highest opening gross in its native Australia, a testament to the country's pride in its home-grown movies. Concentrating on that legendary day in July 1969 when Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon The Dish looks at the small but crucial role of the Parkes satellite receiver, without which the world would never have seen the historic landing. Sam Neill is the pipe-smoking "Dish Master" Cliff, whose team includes Dish mover "Mitch", distractedly love-struck electronics nerd Glenn and NASA representative Al. The Dish could have played the plot premise as a documentary or with a dramatic edge, but chooses instead to present the story at a leisurely comedic pace which oozes charm. The excited little community offers a snapshot of a fondly remembered past full of the idealism of the 1960s. Populated by warm-hearted souls, it's easy to forgive the town band welcoming a US Ambassador with the "Hawaii 5-0" theme instead of the National Anthem. The Dish may not have the sense of danger of Apollo 13, or the dazzling FX of something like Armageddon, but it does have rounded, enjoyable characterisation and a truthful, warming atmosphere, making it easily one of the most enjoyable films inspired by the "space race". --Paul Tonks

  • Click [Blu-ray] [2006] Click | Blu Ray | (22/04/2007) from £2.99  |  Saving you £17.00 (85.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A workaholic architect who has been overlooking his family in favour of his career comes across a universal remote that allows him to perform TV-like functions on his life such as pausing events or fast-forwarding over them. When the remote begins creating its own memory and choosing what to fast-forward over the man sees how much of his personal life has passed him by and realizes the importance of spending more time with his family.

  • 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

  • The Parole Officer [2001] The Parole Officer | DVD | (18/03/2002) from £2.39  |  Saving you £7.60 (76.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Although there are one or two belly laughs along the way, for the most part The Parole Officer gets by on the pleasantly old-fashioned charm of a latter-day Ealing comedy. And despite a handful of gross-out moments (involving a roller coaster at Blackpool, a severed head and a wasp) most of the humour comes from the interaction of a good ensemble cast. It’s the first big-screen vehicle for Steve Coogan, who plays the titular officer as a watered-down, more likeable version of his most famous creation, Alan Partridge. After being set up by a corrupt detective Coogan’s hapless Simon Garden--in fact always identified as a Probation Officer, so presumably the film’s title is an attempt to attract a transatlantic audience--must recruit a motley gang of his ex-con clients to plan and execute a bank robbery in Manchester. Indeed, one of the film’s principal attractions is its affectionate use of that city centre as a setting instead of the more usual seedy London locations of most British caper-comedies.Coogan’s gang are a familiarly dysfunctional bunch, redeemed by sympathetic performances from, notably, Om Puri as irascible serial bigamist George and the young Emma Williams as serial car thief Kirsty. Not enough effort goes into fleshing out the characters, though, and in particular Lena Headey as Coogan’s policewoman girlfriend is far too thinly sketched to seem convincing. However, much fun is had by all as the team bond, bicker and construct, A Team-style, the tools they need for the big heist. The bank raid itself is the film’s highlight and features a surprising deus ex machina appearance from a very distinguished guest star. If The Parole Officer never stretches to the sublime heights (or psychological depths) of I’m Alan Partridge, it does play out in a brisk 90 minutes like an extended episode of Coogan’s Run; which is to say it’s got plenty of easygoing charm even if it never pushes any boundaries. On the DVD: the handful of extra features include a surprisingly serious commentary from Coogan, cowriter Henry Normal, director John Duigan and producer Duncan Kenworthy. More interesting is the handful of deleted scenes, in which we find that some precious character development was sacrificed in the interests of pace (as well as a couple of perfectly good jokes). There's a 22-minute featurette, which isn't really a "making of" but just a series of interviews with the principal cast, plus the trailer and Atomic Kitten's "Eternal Flame" video. The picture is a good anamorphic (16:9) ratio with Dolby 5.1 sound. --Mark Walker

  • Miss Congeniality [2001] Miss Congeniality | DVD | (12/11/2001) from £3.89  |  Saving you £15.10 (79.50%)  |  RRP £18.99

    It's a good thing Sandra Bullock knows her strengths and weaknesses, because without Bullock as star and producer, Miss Congeniality would be an insufferable mess as opposed to being a mildly enjoyable trifle that is custom-made for Bullock's established screen persona. Here she plays nerdy FBI agent Gracie Hart, who is given the horrific pseudonym Gracie Lou Freebush (one example of the film's juvenile tendencies) when assigned to infiltrate a beauty pageant to investigate threats of a terrorist attack. Transforming Bullock from frumpy to stunning is a piece of cake (although she gives pageant coach Michael Caine a run for his money), so the film's premise is trivial at best. More enjoyable is her character's uncouth disdain for pageant contestants and her mistaken perception that they're all a bunch of bimbos. The film nicely charts Gracie's realisation that her pageant makeover provides a much-needed ego boost. In addition to Caine's effortless scene-stealing, pageant host William Shatner and organiser Candice Bergen are smart choices for comedic support (Shatner is a perfect Bert Parks wannabe), but the film desperately needs a credible foundation for its comedy to really pay off. None of the plotting is as smart as predecessors like Beverly Hills Cop in combining procedure with laughs. That leaves Bullock to carry the burden of a comedy that barely works in her favour. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

  • Just Married [2003] Just Married | DVD | (18/08/2003) from £2.61  |  Saving you £12.00 (75.00%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Pretty Brittany Murphy and prettier Ashton Kutcher make a surprisingly enjoyable comic team in Just Married, a romantic comedy about a horrible honeymoon. After a whirlwind romance, radio traffic announcer Kutcher and rich girl Murphy get married over the objections of her upper-crust family. Their love can overcome snobbery--but as the cuddly pair start to drive each other nuts over mishaps travelling through Europe, it starts to look like their love can't overcome intimacy. Just Married has a sprightly script that keeps one foot on the ground (unlike some recent romantic comedies that seem to have no connection to reality) and one eye on the small ways in which lovers can get on each other's nerves. Kutcher and Murphy have a sweet yet volatile chemistry that keeps the antics lively. --Bret Fetzer

  • Prime [2005] Prime | DVD | (25/09/2006) from £2.42  |  Saving you £15.57 (86.50%)  |  RRP £17.99

Professional help is about to get very personal in this entertaining and irresistibly charming hit.

  • Zoolander [2001] Zoolander | DVD | (07/10/2002) from £1.89  |  Saving you £14.10 (88.20%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Ben Stiller originally created the vacuous male model hero of Zoolander for the VH1 Fashion Awards. In his big-screen appearance, Stiller's Derek Zoolander is New York's top model and proud creator of the tight-lipped "facial expression" Blue Steel. However, competition comes in the shape of equally empty-headed young buck Hansel (Owen Wilson), who wins the coveted male model of the year award, much to Derek's dismay. When Derek's vapid friends are then incinerated in an unfortunate petrol station incident he is left vulnerable and alone, perfect fodder for fashion designer supremo Mugatu (a brilliantly surreal Will Ferrell) to hatch a plot of Manchurian Candidate-sized proportions in which Derek is brainwashed into assassinating the Malaysian Prime minister at a fashion show. Derek enlists the help of investigative journalist (Christine Taylor) and even Hansel himself in an attempt to thwart Mugatu's devious plot. Zoolander works thanks to the central performances. Stiller is endearing in his one-dimensional ineptitude, Wilson is shallow hippie cool personified, and there are some great cameos by the likes of David Duchovny as a Deep Throat-esque informer, Milla Jovovich as the eastern European sadomasochistic henchwoman and Jon Voight as Zoolander's coal mining dad. A constant parade of other celebs pop up throughout playing themselves. Admittedly it's a one-joke film, but there are some classic scenes along the way and at its best Zoolander is an entertaining dig at an industry that takes itself far too seriously. On the DVD: Zoolander comes to DVD in an anamorphic 2.35:1 widescreen presentation that's clear and crisp with strong colours, which perfectly shows off the cartoonish style of the film. The audio is consistently sharp. Extra junkies will find plenty of material: deleted scenes, including an extended "Mine" scene and Winona Ryder trying to pick-up Hansel; amusing outtakes; and a great commentary from Ben Stiller with writers Drake Sather and John Hamburg. Best of all is the original VH1 Fashion Show skits which were the inspiration for the film. --Kristen Bowditch

  • Best In Show [2001] Best In Show | DVD | (10/09/2001) from £4.99  |  Saving you £9.00 (64.30%)  |  RRP £13.99

    No-one can deny that the British love their dogs, but Best in Show proves that the Americans are just as canine crazy. Christopher Guest's (This is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman) latest mockumentary looks at the lives and dodgy doggie loves of the contestants in the USA's most prestigious dog show, The Mayflower. The comedy is observational and mostly improvised, but there are also some genuinely hilarious set pieces and running gags as well as some perfectly timed one-liners, all of which repay repeated viewing. Owners really do become like their dogs as Guest presents a parade of brilliantly observed caricatures, revealing their human weaknesses and quirks and defying you not to find something immensely likeable about each one. Guest slowly introduces us to the principal players in a series of formal interviews and fly-on-the-wall profiles. Meet life partners Scott Donlan and Stefan Vanderhoof with their kimonos and matching Shih Tzus; a trophy wife who shares a love of soup and snow peas with her aged, billionaire husband; the suburban couple, Gerry and Cookie Fleck (brilliantly underplayed by co-writer Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara); incredibly highly strung lawyers the Swans and their dysfunctional Weimaraner; and Guest himself as the drawling Southern fishing shop owner and bloodhound breeder Harlan Pepper. This is Guest at his irreverent best.On the DVD: The pin-sharp widescreen 1.85:1 anamorphic picture means the viewer can really appreciate the film's cinematic nuances, and the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack means that you don't miss any of the dialogue subtleties either. But the principal attractions are the 15 or so deleted scenes and the brilliant audio commentary by Guest and Eugene Levy which adds yet another comedic dimension to this mockumentary. The theatrical trailer is also thrown in for good measure. The only feature missing is the profiles of real dog owners and their canine loves that featured on the Region 1 version. --Kristen Bowditch

  • Morris: A Life With Bells On [DVD] [2009] Morris: A Life With Bells On | DVD | (26/07/2010) from £9.05  |  Saving you £6.94 (43.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

    A film that will have even the most cynical viewer reaching for their white handkerchiefs MORRIS: A LIFE WITH BELLS ON stars Charles Thomas Oldham as Derecq Twist along with Sir Derek Jacobi (The Golden Compass) Naomie Harris (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End) Ian Hart (A Cock and Bull Story) Dominique Pinon (Delicatessen) Sophie Thompson (Eastenders) Harriet Walter (The Young Victoria) Aidan McArdle (The Duchess) and Greg Wise (Sense and Sensibility). Described as This is Spinal Tap meets Calendar Girls the film follows the fortunes of an avant-garde Morris team in their struggle to push the boundaries of the venerable ancient dance. Set around the country pub The Travellers Staff the docu-style comedy proves that Morris is not just an innocent pub pastime involving hanky-waving and bearded men with staffs but also that it has its politics-laden ultra-competitive side too. The Millsham Morris men and their leader Derecq Twist are determined to achieve Morris perfection. But Derecq is also preparing to set the Morris world alight by performing the ultimate dance within the Morris firmament the legendary Threeple Hammer Damson. As if this is not enough he is in addition pioneering an innovative daringly freeform brand of the dance dubbed Extreme Morris drawing the anger of traditionalist elements within the Morris community. When Millsham unveil their creation in competition the Morris Circle - the governing body of Morris in the UK - bans Derecq from future competition. Totally devastated by the decision Derecq embarks on a global odyssey through tragedy and triumph which gravely tests his passion for Morris.
