  • Four Lions [Blu-ray] [2010] Four Lions | Blu Ray | (30/08/2010) from £8.59  |  Saving you £14.40 (62.60%)  |  RRP £22.99

    Chris Morris' Four Lions is a funny thrilling comedy that illuminates modern jihadism through the prism of farce. It understands jihadists as human beings. And it understands human beings as innately ridiculous. What This Is Spinal Tap did for heavy metal and Dr Strangelove the Cold War Four Lions does for the modern face of terrorism. In a British city four men have a secret plan. Omar (Riz Ahmed) is disillusioned about the treatment of muslims around the world and is determined to become a soldier. This is the most exciting idea Waj (Kayvan Novak) has ever heard. Better still it's a no brainer because Omar does his thinking for him. Opposed to Omar and everyone else on earth is the white islamic convert Barry (Nigel Lindsay). He'd realize he joined the cell to channel his nihilism - If he had half the self knowledge of a duck. Faisal (Adeel Akhtar) is the odd man out. He can make a bomb - but he can't blow himself up just now coz his sick dad has started eating newspaper. Instead he's training crows to fly bombs through windows. This is what Omar has to deal with. They must strike a decisive blow on their own turf but can any of them strike a match without punching himself in the face?

  • Jimmy Carr In Concert Jimmy Carr In Concert | DVD | (03/11/2008) from £2.85  |  Saving you £14.35 (71.80%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Britain's foremost multi award winning joke technician Jimmy Carr returns with his fourth live stand up DVD Jimmy Carr In Concert. No one writes sharper jokes and no one delivers them better than Jimmy. He commands his audience with twisted little aphorisms the sort of thing you might find in a fortune cookie baked by Satan with no-one escaping his biting wit and take no prisoners approach to subject matter. The release also includes a stack of exclusive DVD extras including a specially commissioned 36 minute cartoon - a montage of Jimmy Carr's most brutal audience putdowns - brought to life by a variety of animators. Here we get to see Jimmy as a life sized puppet a line drawn cartoon and moulded out of clay as he battles and belittles audience members who have dared to heckle! Recorded live at London's Bloomsbury Theatre Jimmy walks a fine line with truly outrageous gags that would be thoroughly offensive if not so expertly delivered with an ironic glint in his eye. As Jimmy explains: This DVD is exactly the same as last year's except every single word. It's rude crude and offensive but those aren't the only reasons you'll enjoy it.

  • Withnail And I [1986] Withnail And I | DVD | (19/02/2007) from £2.17  |  Saving you £3.82 (63.80%)  |  RRP £5.99

  • Tropic Thunder [Blu-ray] [2008] Tropic Thunder | Blu Ray | (26/01/2009) from £4.99  |  Saving you £22.00 (81.50%)  |  RRP £26.99

    It's not really a knock to say that nothing in Tropic Thunder is funnier than its first five minutes, so sly that--especially for people watching in theaters--you don't realise right away they are the opening minutes of the movie. This outrageous comedy begins with a series of fake previews, each introducing one of the main characters in the film-proper (not that there's anything proper about this film) and each bearing the familiar logo of a different motion picture studio: Universal, DreamWorks SKG, et al. Such playing fast and loose with corporate talismans verges on sacrilege, but it's an index of how much le tout Tinseltown endorses the movie as a demented valentine to itself. The premise is that the cast of a would-be "Son of Rambo" movie shooting in some Southeast Asian jungle get into a real shooting war with drug-smuggling montagnards. Don't ask--though the movie does have an answer--why such highly paid, usually ultra-pampered personnel as superhero Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller), Mozart of fart comedy Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), hip-hop artist Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson), and five-time Oscar-winner Kirk Lazarus from Aus-try-leeah (Robert Downey Jr.) should be running through the jungle unattended and very vulnerable. It matters only that the real-life cast has a high time kidding their own profession and flexing their comedic muscles. Bonus points go to Stiller for co-writing the script (with Justin Theroux) and directing, and to Downey, brilliant as a white actor surgically turned black actor for his role and utterly committed to staying in character no matter what ("I don't drop character till I done the DVD commentary"). Be warned: The movie, too, is committed--to being an equal-opportunity offender. Its political incorrectness extends not only to Lazarus's black-like-me posturing but also Speedman's recent, Sean Penn–style Oscar bid playing a cognitively challenged farmboy--or, in Lazarus's deathless phrase, "going the full retard." Others in the cast include Steve Coogan as a director out of his depth, Nick Nolte as the Viet-vet novelist whose book inspired the film-within-the-film, Matthew McConaughey as Speedman's sun-blissed agent back home, and Tom Cruise--bald, fat-suited, and profane--as an epically repulsive studio head. Two hours running time is a mite excessive, but otherwise, what's not to like? --Richard T. Jameson

  • The Boat That Rocked [Blu-ray] [2009] The Boat That Rocked | Blu Ray | (07/09/2009) from £5.05  |  Saving you £19.94 (79.80%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Richard Curtis (Love Actually) delves into the world of 60's pirate radio in this coming-of-age comedy. Amidst a cast of crazies played by the likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy disillusioned teen Carl is about to experience the rebellious spirit of rock 'n' roll Radio Rock-style! On air. Off shore. Out of control. Written and directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually) The Boat That Rocked is an ensemble comedy set in the Britain of the '60s about a band of DJs playing the music that defined a generation standing up to a government that incomprehensibly prefers jazz.

However Quentin is the boss of Radio Rock a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea populated by an eclectic crew of rock 'n' roll DJs. They are led by The Count (Oscar Award-winning Philip Seymour Hoffman Capote) - big brash American god of the airwaves and totally in love with the music. He's faithfully backed up by his co-broadcasters Dave (Nick Frost Hot Fuzz) - ironic intelligent and cruelly funny; Simon (Chris O'Dowd TV's The IT Crowd) - super-nice and searching for true love; Midnight Mark (Tom Wisdom) - enigmatic handsome and man of few words; Wee Small Hours Bob - the late night DJ whose hobbies are folk music and drugs; Thick Kevin (Tom Brooke) - possessor of the smallest intelligence known to mankind; On-The-Hour John (Will Adamsdale) - the newsreader; and Angus 'The Nut' Nutsford (Rhys Darby of TV's The Flight Of The Conchords) - possibly the most annoying man in Britain. Life on the North Sea is eventful. Simon finds the woman of his dreams and is married on the boat... only to be left by his bride the next day. Gavin (Rhys Ifans Notting Hill) returns from his drug tour of America to his rightful position as the greatest DJ in Britain clashing with The Count. Meanwhile Carl discovers the opposite sex and who his real father is whilst government minister Dormandy (Kenneth Branagh Wallander) is out for the blood of these rebellious lawbreakers. What results is a literal storm on the high seas. With Radio Rock in peril it's devoted fans rally together and stage an epic Dunkirk-style hundred boat rescue to save their DJ heroes. Some things may come to an end but rock 'n' roll never dies.

  • Forgetting Sarah Marshall [2008] Forgetting Sarah Marshall | DVD | (15/09/2008) from £2.99  |  Saving you £7.00 (70.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

  • Then She Found Me [2008] Then She Found Me | DVD | (23/02/2009) from £6.23  |  Saving you £9.76 (61.00%)  |  RRP £15.99

  • The Life Aquatic The Life Aquatic | DVD | (04/07/2005) from £1.91  |  Saving you £16.75 (72.90%)  |  RRP £22.99

    In The Life Aquatic, director Wes Anderson takes his familiar stable of actors on a field trip to a fantasy aquarium, complete with stop-motion, candy-striped crabs and rainbow seahorses. And though Anderson does expand his horizons in terms of retro-special effects and a whimsical use of color, fans will otherwise find themselves in well-charted waters. As The Life Aquatic opens, Zissou (Bill Murray), a self-involved, Jacques Cousteau-like filmmaker, has just released a documentary depicting the death of his best friend Esteban, who was eaten by some sort of sea creature--possibly a jaguar shark. Zissou’s troubles also include his waning popularity with the public, and a nemesis (Jeff Goldblum) who hogs up all the grant money. Hope arrives in the form of Ned Plimpton (Owen Wilson), an amiable Kentuckian who may be Zissou’s son. Despite his lack of enthusiasm for fatherhood, Zissou welcomes Ned--and Ned in turn saves Zissou’s new documentary (in which he seeks revenge on the jaguar shark) in more ways than one. One of Wes Anderson’s greatest achievements as a director to date has been launching the autumnal melancholy phase of Bill Murray’s career, starting with Rushmore in 1998, and Murray delivers a similarly comedic yet low-key performance here. Unfortunately, Zissou is one of the few characters in this ensemble to achieve multi-dimensionality. Even co-star Wilson doesn’t get to develop Ned much beyond Noble Southerner, and he ends up seeming more like a prop for illustrating Zissou’s emotional development rather than his own man. The Life Aquatic probably won’t be remembered as a great film, but it is still one that no Anderson (or Murray) fan can afford to miss.--Leah Weathersby, Amazon.com

  • Kick-Ass [DVD] [2010] Kick-Ass | DVD | (06/09/2010) from £2.49  |  Saving you £17.50 (87.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The cinematic equivalent of a half case of Red Bull chased with donuts, Kick-Ass is a giddy, violent experience--and not your average superhero movie. Based on the comic book by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., it offers a set of heroes who are decidedly without superpowers: Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) decides he'll be just like a comic-book character, and puts on a ridiculous green suit to fight crime as the mysterious Kick-Ass. Luckily, somebody else had the same idea and comes along to rescue the incompetent crusader: Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and his daughter Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz), who also happen to be running around town wearing masks and vanquishing evil. And here we have the movie's masterstroke: Hit Girl, a pint-sized preteen who slaughters bad guys and swears like a sailor on leave (and was the focus of a measure of controversy when the movie was released). The main target of our heroes is a gangster (Mark Strong, Sherlock Holmes), whose neglected son (Christopher Mintz-Plasse, McLovin from Superbad) figures he might just pull on a costume himself and become? Red Mist! (One of the many funny things about Kick-Ass is that the superhero names are hopelessly lame.) Director Matthew Vaughn is operating at the same glib level as his Layer Cake, with cutesy song cues galore and a freewheeling appetite for cartoon violence. This means the movie's high wears off quickly, but it does get high--a crazy, hilarious kick. All that, plus Nicolas Cage executes a deadly Adam West imitation when he pulls on his cape and cowl. That's entertainment. --Robert Horton

  • This Is Spinal Tap [1984] This Is Spinal Tap | DVD | (16/10/2000) from £5.99  |  Saving you £10.96 (54.80%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The comedic genius of This Is Spinal Tap is confirmed by the fact that a majority of studio executives were utterly clueless about its brilliance. As a first-time director and cowriter, Rob Reiner must have felt simultaneously frustrated and elated, knowing that the obtuseness of movie executives was a clue to his debut project's potential greatness. Now, of course, the clarity of hindsight and the rarity of superior satire have turned This Is Spinal Tap into one of the funniest documentary spoofs of all time. Reiner and the members of "Tap" (Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Harry Shearer) couldn't have picked a better target for their satire, because heavy metal music in the early 1980s was already a borderline case of self-parody. From the bizarre, premature deaths of the band's drummers to the backstage squabbles over sexist cover art and meddling groupies, this movie scores about a hundred comedic bull's-eyes for lampooning every possible aspect of rock pomposity in the age of Kiss. It's a virtual bible of rock & roll irreverence, so accurate in its observations that it's become a tour-bus classic for real bands around the world. On the one-to-ten scale of satirical inspiration, This Is Spinal Tap is like the modified amplifiers that Christopher Guest so hilariously demonstrates: this one goes to 11. --Jeff Shannon

  • Dogma [1999] Dogma | DVD | (17/03/2008) from £3.99  |  Saving you £12.00 (75.00%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Searching for a way back from everlasting exile renegade fallen angels Loki (Matt Damon) and Bartleby (Ben Affleck) attempt to turn the entire cosmological system on its head - unless an unlikely horde of mass can stop them. Bethany (Linda Fiorentino) the heroine of 'Dogma' is a woman convinced her prayers have not been answered when out of nowhere a heralding angel appears in her bedroom and declares her the potential saviour of humanity. Setting off on an extraordinary journey Bethany meets a host of heavenly and hellish characters including the celestial messenger Metatron (Alan Rickman) an apostle with a 2 000 year old grudge (Chris Rock) hot-headed demon Azrael (Jason Lee) and heavenly muse Serendipity (Salma Hayek).

  • Mickey Blue Eyes [1999] Mickey Blue Eyes | DVD | (19/06/2000) from £3.99  |  Saving you £5.50 (39.30%)  |  RRP £13.99

    Mickey Blue Eyes was crafted as a vehicle for the stammering British charm of Hugh Grant (star of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Nine Months), so whether or not you like the movie will depend heavily on your affection for Grant. He plays an art auctioneer who falls in love with schoolteacher Jeanne Tripplehorn (Basic Instinct, Very Bad Things), who just happens to be the daughter of mobster James Caan (The Godfather, Misery). To protect Grant, Tripplehorn tries to fend off his proposal of marriage, but some miscommunications lead to Grant being embraced by the "family." After the mob decides to launder money through Grant's auction house, an accidental killing results in Grant pretending to be Mickey Blue Eyes out of Kansas City (the sight and sound of Grant trying to say "fuggedaboudit" was undoubtedly what sold the movie in the first place). The plot isn't as well executed as it could be but the leads are all well cast and there are some excellent supporting performances, particularly Burt Young (Rocky) as a myopic mob boss and Scott Thompson (from the comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall) as a sprightly FBI agent. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com --This text refers to the VHS edition of this video

  • Anger Management [2003] Anger Management | DVD | (17/11/2003) from £2.29  |  Saving you £17.70 (88.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The irresistible pairing of Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler is the best reason to see Anger Management, a comedy that might have been subtitled "The Funny and the Furious". Nicholson and especially Sandler have screen personas that partially rely on pent-up anxieties, so there's definite potential in teaming them as a mild-mannered designer of pet clothing for chubby cats (Sandler) who's been ordered to undergo anger management therapy with a zany counsellor (Nicholson) prone to occasional tantrums and devious manipulation. Surely this meandering comedy looked better on the page; director Peter Segal scores a few lucky scenes (particularly Sandler's encounter with a Buddhist monk, played by John C Reilly), but a flood of cameos (Heather Graham, Woody Harrelson, Rudolph Giuliani, and others) can't match the number of laughs that fall flat. As Sandler's understanding girlfriend, Marisa Tomei plays a pivotal role in a happy ending that leaves everyone smiling, with the possible exception of the audience. --Jeff Shannon

  • Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story [2004] Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story | DVD | (31/01/2005) from £2.99  |  Saving you £16.10 (80.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    How's this for impressive trivia: Dodgeball faced off against The Terminal in opening-weekend competition, and 29-year-old writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber aced Steven Spielberg by a score of $30 to $18.7 in US box-office millions. That's no mean feat for a newcomer, but Thurber's lowbrow script and rapid-fire direction--along with a sublime cast of screen comedians--proved to be just what moviegoers were ravenous for: a consistently hilarious, patently formulaic romp in which the underdog owner of Average Joe's Gym (Vince Vaughan) faces foreclosure unless he can raise $50,000 in 30 days. The solution: A dodgeball tournament offering $50K to the winners, in which Vaughan and his nerdy clientele team up against the preening, abhorrently narcissistic owner (Ben Stiller) of Globo Gym, who's threatening a buy-out. That's it for story; any 5-year-old could follow it with brainpower to spare. But Thurber, Vaughan, Stiller, and their well-cast costars (including Stiller's off-screen wife, Christine Taylor) keep the big laughs coming for 96 nonsensical minutes. With spot-on cameos by champion bicyclist Lance Armstrong, David Hasselhoff, Hank Azaria, Chuck Norris, and William Shatner, and a crudely amusing coda for those who watch past the credits, Dodgeball is no masterpiece, but you can bet Spielberg was unexpectedly humbled by its popular appeal. --Jeff Shannon

    Beneath Bruce Garrett's (Nick Frost) shabby overweight exterior the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant. Only one woman his smart funny and gorgeous new boss Julia (Rashida Jones) can reignite his Latin fire. But she's way out of his league and with expert lothario and alpha-male office nemesis Drew (Chris O'Dowd) in rampant pursuit can Bruce's loyal sister (Olivia Colman) childhood dance mentor (Ian McShane) and crazy new amateur salsa pal (Kayvan Novak) help him unshackle his dancing beast regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life?

  • East Is East [1999] East Is East | DVD | (10/09/2001) from £3.30  |  Saving you £5.32 (53.30%)  |  RRP £9.99

    A surprise hit internationally, Damien O'Donnell's feature debut is a warm, richly funny portrait of the cultural and emotional collisions of a multiracial family in 1971 Salford, where curry meets fish-and-chips and the threat of a spacehopper lurks around every corner. Adapted by Ayub Khan-Din from his own stage play, the film centres on Pakistani immigrant George Khan (huge Bollywood star Om Puri) still deeply attached to the moral and political mores of his homeland, but married to Englishwoman Ella (Linda Bassett). Despite her protestations, Khan is adamant their six sons and daughter, raised to respect traditional Muslim values, must enter into arranged marriages. Meanwhile, the children are more intent on pursuing the secret pleasures of interracial dating, bacon sandwiches and midnight forays to the nearest club.O'Donnell's direction fully exploits the often bawdy humour in the family's everyday struggles, while bringing an unexpected emotional punch to the scenes of violent confrontation which erupt as Khan becomes ever more dictatorial. The film also maintains comic momentum and dramatic intensity throughout thanks to excellent performances by Puri, Bassett and the remaining cast, including soap stars Chris Bisson (Coronation Street) and Jimi Mistry (EastEnders). Against a backdrop of 1970s pop culture, the many highlights include an oversexed dog and a giant sculpted pudenda.
