  • Nurse Betty [2000] Nurse Betty | DVD | (03/09/2001) from £2.65  |  Saving you £7.40 (57.00%)  |  RRP £12.99

    A frenzied, screwball comedy with a lighter-than-light touch, Nurse Betty is a radical departure for director Neil LaBute, who helmed the vitriolic In the Company of Men and Your Friends and Neighbours. Betty (Renée Zellweger) is a perky Kansas waitress whose sole happiness comes from her obsession with the television soap A Reason to Love, starring dreamboat doctor David Ravell (Greg Kinnear). When her slimy car-dealer husband (Aaron Eckhart) enters into a drug transaction that goes horribly awry, Betty inadvertently witnesses the carnage and, in shock, becomes Nurse Betty, determined to reunite with her long-lost love, Dr Ravell. Tailed by two hit men (Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock), Betty heads to LA a determined woman, unaware she has their huge drug stash in tow. Though it takes a good half-hour to get going, once LaBute and the film hit top speed, it's a surreal, often brilliant ride, as Betty's fantasy and reality collide, with unexpected (really unexpected) developments. The screenplay (by John C Richards and James Flamberg) is wickedly inventive and like his previous films, LaBute has assembled a peerless cast. Zellweger is charming and daffy in her best performance since Jerry Maguire and Freeman is by turns menacing and touchingly romantic in his obsession with Betty. Kinnear is the epitome of self-serving shallowness (and makes us love him all the more for it) and Rock finally shakes his stand-up persona and emerges as a great comic actor. Look also for a scene-stealing Allison Janney as the producer of Kinnear's soap. Most films rarely get such talent operating at full capacity and Nurse Betty soars because of it. --Mark Englehart, Amazon.com

  • Cecil B Demented [2000] Cecil B Demented | DVD | (10/09/2001) from £6.71  |  Saving you £12.00 (60.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    They say that the best comedy always has a point to make. John Waters' Cecil B Demented is certainly no exception. Using the director's unique brand of melodramatic kitsch comedy the film offers an exposé of popular Hollywood cinema. The Sprocket Holes are a gang of underground cinema anarchists with a life or death goal to destroy Hollywood--"Power to the people who punish bad cinema" cries their leader and director Cecil B Demented (superbly played by Stephen Dorff who appears to have been taking lessons at the Gary Oldman school of acting). After kidnapping Honey Whitlock (Melanie Griffith) to appear in their underground guerrilla film they return to their hideout--an old movie theatre--to begin the dramatic make-over of Honey from Hollywood prima donna to underground cinema queen. Exposing the realms of media manipulation--it's amazing what a little anarchy can do to help your cause--the Sprocket Holes gain notoriety and a fan base from their violent actions. Although Waters seems ill at ease with choreographing violence, the farcical nature of these aggressive scenes adds another level of humour to his exploration of the divide between mainstream and underground cinema. The director could have done more to explore the fickle nature of the movie starlet, however, and the opening scenes with Honey Whitlock as a superficial two-faced star are bland: Griffith is perhaps not made for the part of a Hollywood bitch. Easier to stomach than Pink Flamingos, like Serial Mom before it Cecil B Demented will appeal to a wider audience, who perhaps will come away believing that Forrest Gump is not a cinematic masterpiece after all. On the DVD: The menu is probably the most notable feature of the disc, with a nodding-dog Cecil B Demented and a crazy rodent popping up everywhere it fits perfectly with the Waters style of humour. The special features simply consist of a bland trailer and some mundane interviews with the main cast and crew, which offer little towards appreciating the humour of the movie. With a 5.1 Dolby digital audio track and widescreen ratio the disc at least offers a high standard of viewing pleasure, no budget spared. --Nikki Disney

  • Beautiful Creatures [2001] Beautiful Creatures | DVD | (10/04/2003) from £2.95  |  Saving you £12.00 (75.00%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Firmly in the spirit of the late 90s wave of British crime films, Beautiful Creatures stars Rachel Weisz and Susan Lynch as two young Glasgow women united against their brutally abusive boyfriends. With a corpse in the bathroom, a golf bag with a secret and seedy detective on their trail Dorothy (Lynch) and Petula (Weisz) hatch an ill-conceived fake kidnapping as their passport from an impossible situation. The film is an entertaining 84 minutes, but though there are several suspense scenes and some queasily amusing black comedy the TV style direction and generic plot fail to deliver any originality. First time feature director Bill Eagles concentrates on winning strong performances from an excellent cast and referencing The Wizard of Oz (1939) (Dorothy has a dog called Pluto, rather than Toto), Wild at Heart (2000) (watch Pluto and those fingers). Added to these are references to Thelma and Louise (1991), Shallow Grave (1994), Butterfly Kiss (1995), Bound (1996), and the film its title echoes, Heavenly Creatures (1994). Considering the graphic violence against women this would have been a stronger, more honest film had it taken itself seriously. As it is, the fashionable yet often inappropriate humour prevents Beautiful Creatures making any serious point about women's reaction to male violence, the finale degenerating into routine feel-good exploitation. On the DVD: This is a bare-bones release with brief on-screen production notes, cast and crew credits, a page about Universal's DVD email newsletter and a static menu. The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound locks most of the audio to the centre speaker, though there's plenty of dog-barking all around the room. The anamorphically enhanced 1.77-1 transfer clearly cuts off part of the original image at both sides of the screen and is often, especially in the many night scenes, far grainier than one would expect from a feature film released in the year 2000. --Gary S Dalkin

  • Red Mist [DVD] [2008] Red Mist | DVD | (13/07/2009) from £3.37  |  Saving you £9.70 (64.70%)  |  RRP £14.99

    The medical students at Forthaven General Hospital study hard and party harder until a cruel prank accidentally puts the facility's creepy janitor into a deep coma.

  • The Rules of Attraction [2003] The Rules of Attraction | DVD | (29/09/2003) from £2.78  |  Saving you £8.60 (61.50%)  |  RRP £13.99

    Based on Bret Easton Ellis's often-overlooked second novel, The Rules of Attraction works better as a film than the disastrous Less Than Zero, though not as well as the canny American Psycho. Writer-director Roger Avary--who lets slip a nasty Quentin Tarantino reference that feels like sour grapes--can't quite decide whether to ditch the novel's extremely 1980s cultural references and make a contemporary-set picture or to evoke the period in which the book was written. Set on a small New England campus, the film offers a love triangle between "emotional vampire" Sean Bateman (James Van Der Beek), skateboarding "innocent" Lauren Hynde (Shannon Sossamyn) and gay libertine Paul Denton (Ian Somerhalder) that gets complicated by passing characters. While not as hung up on time as Memento or Irreversible, the film does play its tricks, opening at an "end of the world party" to show its three leads at simultaneous low points, reversing to take stabs at each of them, then hopping back and forth in time as different narrators take over, with time-outs for a fast-forward tour of Europe by a minor character and a drug-dealing subplot to keep Avary's crime credentials in order. All in all it's a satirical piece that is removed from reality, always striking, sometimes funny or horrifying, but ultimately hard to connect with. --Kim Newman

  • Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back [DVD] [2001] Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back | DVD | (01/02/2010) from £N/A  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £17.99

    With sidesplitting dialogue and rampant profanity, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back reunites Kevin Smith's dynamic duo in supreme lowbrow style. It's the fifth comedy in Smith's celebrated New Jersey "trilogy". Here Quick-Stop potheads Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) wreak vengeance on Hollywood, where Miramax is making a "Bluntman & Chronic" feature inspired by J and SB, but without their permission. En route from Jersey to La La Land, Jay and his "hetero lifemate" encounter sexy jewel thieves (including the delightful Shannon Elizabeth), a precocious orang-utan, a dimwit wildlife marshal (Will Ferrell), and a non-stop parade of in-jokes, harmless (yet controversial) gay jokes, and splendid celebrity cameos. While gently biting the Miramax hand that feeds him, and paying affectionate homage to the Star Wars saga, Smith sheds all inhibitions to give Jay and Silent Bob a stellar send off that's nasty, sassy and undeniably hilarious. --Jeff Shannon

  • Brothers [2000] Brothers | DVD | (12/04/2005) from £N/A  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £5.99

    Brothers, the debut feature of Martin Dunkerton, is a ramshackle lads abroad film that proves that--while Britain’s youth seem to be forever enamoured with the myth of Ibiza (endless beaches, drinking, guaranteed sex and Par-tay!)--you clearly have to be there. Following the Greek-bound, “larging it” adventures of a group of blokes, there’s no shortage of gratuitous nudity, drunken dancing and awkward sexual fumblings, all colliding clumsily with Dunkerton’s attempts at turning the boys’ holiday into some sort of spiritual odyssey, and hampered by a poor script. Both Ibiza lovers and the undemanding will probably love it, but for everyone else, it’s cast-iron proof of how embarrassing ghastly Brit geezers can be abroad-- obviously not what was intended.On the DVD: While the Greek locales look stunning, the effect is considerably diminished by a poor DVD transfer, where glistening seas become a pixellated mess. Director Martin Dunkerton offers up a tepid commentary, afflicted with dreaded “describe-what’s-on-screen” rambling rather than any candid insight, while a 30-minute documentary boasting unseen footage is actually a series of TV coverage clips spliced with back-slapping interviews. The package is rounded off with the video for Angelic’s Ibiza anthem “It’s My Turn” and a trailer. --Danny Graydon
