"Actor: Christina Ricci"

  • The Addams Family [DVD] [1991]The Addams Family | DVD | (07/10/2013) from £4.99   |  Saving you £5.00 (100.20%)   |  RRP £9.99

    Director Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) brings his distinctly cartoonish sensibility to this feature film version of the old Charles Addams comic strip. Anjelica Huston was born to play Morticia Addams, matriarch of the ghoulish Addams clan, while the late Raul Julia is a very agreeable, lusty Gomez. But it's Christina Ricci who arguably steals the show as their stone-faced daughter, Wednesday. As is often the problem with adaptations of comics or television shows, somehow an original story has to be implemented that doesn't clutter things up. But clutter is an issue here as the script gets tangled on a lame plot concerning efforts to steal the Addams' house and fortune. Still, it's fun to see an ideal cast reanimate an old favourite. --Tom Keogh

  • Addams Family Values [1993]Addams Family Values | DVD | (17/04/2019) from £4.99   |  Saving you £8.00 (160.32%)   |  RRP £12.99

    This slightly more cohesive follow-up to The Addams Family has the same director, Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black), but a better story line. Joan Cusack plays a busty gold digger who ingratiates herself into the Addams home and convinces Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) that she wants to marry him. Besides Lloyd, the cast includes Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia, ideal as those Brontëan lovers, Morticia and Gomez. But Christina Ricci again walks away with the best moments as the chilly Wednesday Addams, making life miserable for two camp counsellors (Peter MacNicol and Christine Baranski) who want her to fit in with other kids. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

  • Casper [1995]Casper | DVD | (01/09/2008) from £5.81   |  Saving you £5.44 (119.56%)   |  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

  • Mermaids [DVD]Mermaids | DVD | (13/01/2014) from £6.19   |  Saving you £3.80 (61.39%)   |  RRP £9.99

    Richard Benjamin's off-beat 1990 comedy Mermaids found Cher at the peak of her big-screen form. She plays Mrs Flax to the manner born. The eccentric mother feeds her two daughters on hors d'oeuvres and sticks a pin in the map to decide the family's next destination when her love affairs have run their course. When they reach New England, however, events--and an unlikely but amiable suitor (Bob Hoskins)--interrupt her self-centred progress and bring the facts of life home to roost with a vengeance. It's a well-made comedy with good performances from Cher and Hoskins, although neither of them is particularly stretched. There is also enough tension in the relationship between Mrs Flax and her eldest child to make it poignant as well as funny. As the Flax daughters, Winona Ryder (neurotic, unworldly Charlotte) and Christina Ricci (swimming-mad "fishhead") show plenty of the promise which has since made them two of America's most appealing film actresses. Stuffed with authentic 1960s detail, Mermaids is actually a modern "woman's picture" which affirms the often precarious bonds of family relationships. On the DVD: Presented in widescreen format, optimised for high-resolution television sets, Mermaids is a vibrant visual treat for anybody with an affection for 1960s kitsch and fashion. The picture quality is superb and the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack sharp; some cracking dialogue has to share the sound waves with thumping hits of the day and, over the final credits, Cher's global smash hit rendering of "It's in His Kiss". But apart from a multilingual choice of soundtracks and subtitles and the original theatrical trailer, there are no extras. --Piers Ford

  • Moby - Play [2001]Moby - Play | DVD | (13/05/2002) from £16.18   |  Saving you £-3.19 (N/A%)   |  RRP £12.99

    Producing a DVD for Play, could be seen as a shameless attempt to resurrect an album which has reached saturation point as far as sales go or British tolerance will allow after the relentless use of tracks from it in films, adverts, TV shows, trailers and even football coverage. Thankfully, Moby's quality control means he refuses to rip off his fans, so the material gathered within this disk is surprisingly good. First up there's all the music videos from Play, which range from the sublime (Jonas Akerland's treatment of "Porcelain") via the cartoon ("Natural Blues" and "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad" by Susi Wilkinson, Hotessa, Laurence & Filipe Alcada, complete with cute little animated Mobys) to the ridiculous (Fredrik Bond's inspired vision for "Body Rock"). Even funnier are the outtakes for "Body Rock", which show footage of all the dancers who didn't make the grade in stupidity stakes. Along with this is an hour's worth of Moby remixes all segued together, with trippy electronic visuals for the late-night crowd. Even in the middle of the afternoon you can't fail to stare in slack-jawed wonder as a stunning remix of "Porcelain" kicks in, accompanied by smooth flowing images of urban streets. To stop you from drifting off altogether there are some more up-tempo sections to the mix, including a euphoric reworking of "Natural Blues" and a 1970's disco funk version of "Body Rock" to get your toes tapping. For those of you who thought that Moby--the born again Christian, vegan, anti-smoking, animal rights activist--took himself too serious for his own good, go straight to the Tour Videos section of the DVD: filmed all over the world, it provides a platform for Moby to be himself and he turns out to be hilariously funny as he takes you on a backstage tour of Homelands complete with crazy Scottish accent, then pops up in both Germany and France, proving himself a master of their inflexions too. Added to all these features are tracks culled from the "Later with Moby" BBC special and a separate mix CD of some of Moby's finest moments. All in all a great supplement to a modern day classic. --Helen Marquis
