  • Meet the Fockers [2004] Meet the Fockers | DVD | (02/07/2006) from £2.89  |  Saving you £17.10 (85.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Meet the Parents found such tremendous success in the chemistry produced by the contrasting personalities of stars Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller that the film's creators went for broke with the same formula again in Meet the Fockers. This time around, Jack and Dina Byrnes (De Niro and Blythe Danner) climb into Jack's new kevlar-lined RV with daughter Pam (Teri Polo), soon-to-be son-in-law Gaylord (Stiller), and Jack's infant grandson from his other daughter for the trip to Florida to meet Gaylord's parents, Bernie and Roz Focker (Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand in a casting coup). The potential in-laws are, of course, the opposite of Jack, a pair of randy, touchy-feely fun-lovers. The rest of the movie is pretty much a sitcom: put Bernie and Roz together with Jack, and watch the in-laws clash as Gaylord squirms. As with the original, there is a sense of joy in watching these actors take on their roles with obvious relish, and the Hoffman-Streisand-Stiller triumvirate is likeable enough to draw you in. But the formula doesn't work as well in Fockers mostly because much of the humor is based on two obvious gimmicks: Gaylord Focker's name, and the fact that Streisand's character is a sex therapist. As a result, the movie itself is more contrived and predictable, and a lot less fun than the original. The casting is grand, but one wishes more thought was put into the script.--Dan Vancini, Amazon.com

  • Turner And Hooch [1990] Turner And Hooch | DVD | (12/02/2001) from £4.29  |  Saving you £10.70 (71.40%)  |  RRP £14.99

    Much better than your average cop-and-dog movie (such as K-9), Turner and Hooch is really a love story about a control freak (Tom Hanks) who gradually resigns to the messy chaos of a sweet hulk of a pooch named Hooch. The excuse for this relationship is that the dog can identify a murderer and Hanks needs him, but the film is really about such hilarious moments as Hanks bathing Hooch with a long brush, and a wild chase through the streets when the sharp-eyed mutt spots his suspect. Layered over this is a healthy love story between Hanks and animal vet Mare Winningham, who share a terribly sexy scene together--while fully clothed--doing no more than making breakfast. (Hanks directed this scene, though Roger Spottiswoode directed the rest of the movie.) --Tom Keogh

  • Kevin Bridges Live: A Whole Different Story [DVD] [2015] Kevin Bridges Live: A Whole Different Story | DVD | (23/11/2015) from £3.02  |  Saving you £16.97 (84.90%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Scotland’s biggest export, Kevin Bridges, dubbed as “brilliant” by one of his comedy idols, Billy Connolly has had an astonishing rise to success. His 2012 tour smashed box office records selling a staggering 45,000 tickets on the first day. The last 12 months have been incredibly busy for Kevin with him hosting three shows for BBC1 including a referendum special of his critically acclaimed documentaries Kevin Bridges – What’s The Story and stand up shows on the Commonwealth Games and the Scottish Referendum. October marks a momentous chapter in Kevin’s career with his hotly anticipated autobiography We Need To Talk About… being released through Penguin Books followed by a book-signing tour of the UK. To finish an incredible year off Kevin will be performing his first solo show in Dubai this December.

  • Casper [1995] Casper | DVD | (01/09/2008) from £4.57  |  Saving you £5.42 (54.30%)  |  RRP £9.99

    The 1995 family film Casper tries to put a fun spin on the story of a paranormalist and widower (Bill Pullman) who moves into a new house with his daughter (Christina Ricci) and meets up with the ghost of a dead little boy. Based on the comic book about Casper the friendly ghost, the film is a dreary series of awkward interactions between live actors and computer effects, and you can almost see Pullman and Ricci reconsidering the project while on camera. A few cameo appearances from uncredited stars help things a bit. But there's no way, based on this film, that one could have guessed that its director, Brad Silberling, would go on to make the exceptional drama City of Angels. This special edition DVD release includes a director's commentary and exhaustive 47-minute behind-the-scenes documentary, plus games and DVD-ROM content for the kids. --Tom Keogh

  • Napoleon Dynamite [2004] Napoleon Dynamite | DVD | (25/04/2005) from £4.49  |  Saving you £11.50 (71.90%)  |  RRP £15.99

    He's out to prove he's got nothing to prove. From Preston Idaho comes Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) a new kind of hero complete with a tight red 'fro some sweet moon boots and skills that can't be topped. Napoleon lives with his Grandma (Sandy Martin) and his 30 year old unemployed brother Kip (Aaron Russell) who spends his days looking for love in internet chat rooms. When Grandma hits the road on her quad runner Napoleon and Kip's meddling Uncle Rico (Jon Gries) comes to town to stay with them and run their lives. Napoleon is left to his own devices to impress the chicks at school and help his new best friend (Efren Ramirez) win the election for Student Body President against the stuck up Summer (Haylie Duff); all the while making sure to feed Grandma's pet Llama Tina and avoiding association with Uncle Rico and the herbal breast enhancers he sells door to door. Napoleon and Pedro put their skills and knowledge of pirates cows and drawing to good use but it is a surprise talent that leads to the pair's triumph in the end...

  • The Love Punch [DVD] The Love Punch | DVD | (18/08/2014) from £3.95  |  Saving you £16.04 (80.20%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Reuniting with director Joel Hopkins for the first time since 2008's Last Chance Harvey Academy Award-winner Emma Thompson plays Kate whose biting banter with ex-husband Richard (Pierce Brosnan) suggests that the embers of their former ardour haven't been fully extinguished. When an unscrupulous French financier steals their nest egg to buy a $10 million diamond for his bride-to-be the divorced duo grudgingly agree to hatch a plot to nab the rock.

  • See No Evil, Hear No Evil [1989] See No Evil, Hear No Evil | DVD | (11/09/2000) from £3.73  |  Saving you £8.30 (63.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    See No Evil, Hear No Evil is a comedy thriller about disability that teeters perpetually on the brink of execrable taste, but more often ends up being bland. Brash blind Wally (Richard Pryor) and mild-mannered, cute deaf Dave (Gene Wilder) form a working partnership based partly on mutual regard and partly on desperation. A man is killed at the counter of their cigar store and neither of them can quite account for their actions or identify the killer, Eve (Joan Severance). They find themselves arrested and subsequently on the run. Eve and her henchman--a surprisingly sinister Kevin Spacey--pursue them remorselessly, searching for a gold coin that is more and less than it appears. Mild sexual chemistry between Wilder and the villainess is perhaps one of the few elements here not entirely watered down from late-period Hitchcock. Playing disability for slapstick is perhaps not the most enlightened way to increase sympathy for the disabled: this is a crass film whose good intentions are more than usually fragile. On the DVD: the disc includes a rather smug featurette and filmographies of the two stars. --Roz Kaveney

  • American Pie 7: Book Of Love [DVD] American Pie 7: Book Of Love | DVD | (07/12/2009) from £4.19  |  Saving you £8.80 (67.70%)  |  RRP £12.99

  • Romy And Michele's High School Reunion [1997] Romy And Michele's High School Reunion | DVD | (05/02/2001) from £4.29  |  Saving you £10.70 (71.40%)  |  RRP £14.99

    Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino play ditzy best friends who decide to attend their 10-year high school reunion, but they completely make over their styles and identities first in order to impress the people who tormented them. The two stars keep Romy and Michele's High School Reunion going despite various lapses and potholes in David Mirkin's direction and despite a sneaking sense that the idea can't sustain the length of an entire feature. A midsection dream sequence underscores the latter problem through blatant padding, but Sorvino and Kudrow--both of whom became established stars playing airheads on other projects--are worth the weaknesses. --Tom Keogh

  • Bridget Jones 2: The Edge of Reason [2004] Bridget Jones 2: The Edge of Reason | DVD | (25/02/2005) from £3.16  |  Saving you £21.83 (87.40%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Although it's been three years since we last saw Bridget (Renée Zellweger), only a few weeks have passed in her world. She is, as you'll remember, no longer a "singleton," having snagged stuffy but gallant Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) at the end of the 2001 film. Now she's fallen deeply in love and out of her neurotic mind with paranoia: Is Mark cheating on her with that slim, bright young thing from the law office? Will the reappearance of dashing cad Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) further spell the end of her self-confidence when they're shoved off to Thailand together for a TV travel story? If such questions also seem pressing to you, this sequel will be fairly painless, but you shouldn't expect anything fresh. Director Beeban Kidron and her screenwriters--all four of them!--are content to sink matters into slapstick, with chunky Zellweger (who's unflatteringly photographed) the literal butt of all jokes. Though the star still has her charms, and some of Bridget's social gaffes are amusing, the film is mired in low comedy--a sequence in a Thai women's prison is more offensive than outrageous--with only Grant's rakish mischief to pull it out of the swamp. --Steve Wiecking

  • Shaun Of The Dead [2004] Shaun Of The Dead | DVD | (06/09/2004) from £3.05  |  Saving you £16.40 (82.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    It's no disparagement to describe Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s zombie-rom-com Shaun of the Dead as playing like an extended episode of Spaced. Not only does the movie have the rather modest scope of a TV production, it also boasts the snappy editing, smart camera moves, and deliciously post-modern dialogue familiar from the sitcom, as well as using many of the same cast: Pegg’s Shaun and Nick Frost’s Ed are doppelgangers of their Spaced characters, while Jessica Stevenson and Peter Serafinowicz appear in smaller roles. Unlike the TV series, it’s less important for the audience to be in on the movie in-jokes, though it won’t hurt if you know George Romero’s famous Dawn of the Dead trilogy, which is liberally plundered for zombie behaviour and mythology. Shaun is a loser, stuck in a dead-end job and held back by his slacker pal Ed. Girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) is exasperated by his lack of ambition and unceremoniously dumps him. As a result, Shaun misses out on what is apparently the end of the world. In a series of beautifully choreographed and edited scenes, including hilarious tracking shots to and from the local shop, he spectacularly fails to notice the death toll and subsequent zombie plague. Only when one appears in their back garden do Shaun and Ed take notice, hurling sundry kitchen appliances at the undead before breaking out the cricket bat. The catastrophe proves to be the catalyst for Shaun to take charge of his life, sort out his relations with his dotty mum (Penelope Wilton) and distant stepdad (Bill Nighy), and fight to win back his ex-girlfriend. Lucy Davis from The Office and Dylan Moran of Black Books fame head the excellent supporting cast. --Mark Walker

  • Baby's Day Out [1994] Baby's Day Out | DVD | (18/10/2004) from £3.99  |  Saving you £9.00 (69.30%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Baby Bink is out on the town for the day visiting wonderous places and seeing fantastic sights. The only problem is he is travelling alone. Frantically hunted by his mother and turned into a celebrity by the media Baby Bink is cool calm collected and totally unaware of the havoc he wreaks this daytrip is a hilarious mix of comedy and groundbreaking special effects.

  • Dumb And Dumber [DVD] [1994] Dumb And Dumber | DVD | (21/06/2010) from £4.19  |  Saving you £-0.20 (-5.00%)  |  RRP £3.99

    Delivering exactly what its title promises, this celebration of stupidity was Jim Carrey's 1994 follow-up to Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Mask. The film pairs the rubber-faced wacky man with Jeff Daniels as the not-so-dynamic duo of Lloyd and Harry, dunderheads who come into the possession of a briefcase containing ransom money that is intended for Mob-connected kidnappers. Lauren Holly co-stars as the woman who lost the briefcase, and with whom Carrey falls in love (both in real life and as his moronic on-screen character). As Lloyd and Harry make a mad dash to return the briefcase (never aware of its contents), the bumbling buddies attract Mobsters, cops, and trouble galore. This lowbrow laugh-a-thon scores some solid hits for hilarity, but with gags involving ill-fated parakeets, buxom bimbos, and an overdose of laxatives, be prepared to put your brain--and good taste--on hold.--Jeff Shannon

  • John Bishop Supersonic Live at the Royal Albert Hall [DVD] [2015] John Bishop Supersonic Live at the Royal Albert Hall | DVD | (16/11/2015) from £2.79  |  Saving you £17.20 (86.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    John Bishop's back! After taking time out to write his autobiography, John limbered up again for his third sell-out national Arena tour, ending with a special one-off show at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall. This latest comedy caper by the immensely talented John Bishop was described as the funniest two hours you'll have anywhere, anytime soon by The Daily Mirror. So grab your copy, sit back and prepare for maximum comedy! Extras: A JOKE TOO FAR OUTTAKES FAN TWITTER Q & A

  • Lost In Translation [2004] Lost In Translation | DVD | (28/06/2004) from £2.75  |  Saving you £16.00 (80.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Like a good dream, Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation envelopes you with an aura of fantastic light, moody sound, head-turning love, and a feeling of déjà vu, even though you've probably never been to this neon-fused version of Tokyo. Certainly Bob Harris has not. The 50-ish actor has signed-on for big money shooting whiskey ads instead of doing something good for his career or his long-distance family. Jetlagged, helplessly lost with his Japanese-speaking director and out of sync with the metropolis, Harris (Bill Murray, never better) befriends the married but lovelorn 25-year-old Charlotte (played with heaps of poise by 18-year-old Scarlett Johansson). Even before her photographer husband all but abandons her, she is adrift like Harris but in a total entrapment of youth. How Charlotte and Bill discover their soul mates will be cherished for years to come. Written and directed by Coppola (The Virgin Suicides), the film is far more atmospheric than plot-driven: we whiz through Tokyo parties, karaoke bars and odd nightlife, always ending up in the impossibly posh hotel where the two are staying. The wisps of bittersweet loneliness of Bill and Charlotte are handled smartly and romantically, but unlike modern studio films, this isn't a May to December fling film. Surely and steadily, the film ends on a much-talked-about grace note, which may burn some, yet awards film lovers who "always had Paris" with another cinematic destination of the heart. --Doug Thomas

  • Happy Gilmore [1996] Happy Gilmore | DVD | (20/09/1999) from £2.73  |  Saving you £5.80 (58.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Adam Sandler fans are sure to enjoy this no-brainer comedy, but everyone else is strongly advised to proceed with caution. Before scoring a more enjoyable hit with his 1998 comedy The Wedding Singer, the former Saturday Night Live goofball played Happy Gilmore, a hot-tempered guy whose dreams of hockey stardom elude him. But when he discovers his gift for driving golf balls hundreds of yards, he joins a pro tour to win the prize money needed to rescue his beloved grandma's home from repossession. The trouble is, Happy's not so happy. He's got a temper that frequently flares on the golf course (he even dukes it out with celebrity golfer Bob Barker), but a retired golf pro (Carl Weathers) and a compassionate publicist (Julie Bowen) help him to perfect his putting game and adjust his confrontational attitude. How much you enjoy this lunacy depends on your tolerance for Sandler's loudmouthed schtick and a shocking number of blatant product-placement endorsements, but if you're looking for broad comedy you've come to the right tee-off spot. --Jeff Shannon

  • The League Of Gentlemen - Series 3 (2002) The League Of Gentlemen - Series 3 (2002) | DVD | (10/11/2003) from £4.95  |  Saving you £15.00 (75.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The third series of The League of Gentlemen takes the portmanteau horror approach of their Christmas Special and extends it daringly across the entire six episodes. Here, each half-hour instalment is a self-contained story featuring various familiar and less well-known inhabitants of Britain's most accursed town, Royston Vasey. But each individual tale leads--horribly, inevitably--towards a single shocking event, the full circumstances of which are only realised in a final, macabre twist. It's all far too bleak to be called comedy, just too damn funny to be anything else. This is a team who have always defined their own rules, nowhere more boldly than here. Opening with a funky new theme tune, the six episodes feature--among others--ex-con Pauline and Mickey in a touching tale of transvestisism; Lance the one-armed comedy shop owner yearning for a new limb; foul-tempered Geoff Tipps trying to make it as a stand-up comic in "Lundun"; some eye-popping fetishist behaviour at the local B&B; seedy goings-on in the massage parlour; and, most horrendously of all, the dreaded return of Papa Lazarou. It all proved too much for some viewers--too grotesque, too offbeat, too surreal. Packed with knowing references to obscure movies and filled with the most unpleasant characters ever to grace a "sitcom", this is certainly an uncompromising series, and one that invites fascinated speculation on what dark delights await in their upcoming movie. On the DVD: The League of Gentlemen, Series 3 two-disc set maintains the high standard of extra features established by the previous series. Here there's more raucous "Local Gossip" with the four gents on the first disc, plus a second disc of insightful background material including: a 30-minute making of documentary by Adam Buxton (of Adam and Joe); a candid video diary from Steve Pemberton; a truly dire magic tutorial from Dean Tavalouris (Reece Shearsmith); Joby Talbot's music score; an interview with costume designer Yves Barre; outtakes and deleted scenes; plus a Mike King Enterprises editing suite, enabling you to muck about with the ending sequence and ruin it completely. --Mark Walker
