  • On a laughter scale, Blake Edwards’s 10, a spicy comedy of manners, morals and mid-life crises, hits the top. It’s a film of many moods, sometimes sexy, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes slapstick – but always on target. That target is 42-year old composer George Webber (Dudley Moore), a man who has everything and who may just chuck it all in an obsessive quest for a beautiful woman (Bo Derek) he glimpses en route to her wedding.

  • High holy days are here again, only a little higher and a lot less holy. After years of drifting apart, Harold and Kumar reunite when a prize Christmas tree accidentally goes up in smoke. 

    Rather than come clean to his crazy in-laws, Harold opts to get dirty as he and Kumar embark on a dope holiday adventure to fi nd the perfect replacement tree. On the way, the two find song, dance and the true spirit of Christmas. And they just might meet a mythical figure back from the dead: the one, the only... Neil Patrick Harris.

  • He’s the best there is. In fact, he’s the only one there is! He’s Ace Ventura Pet Detective. Jim Carey (The Mask, Dumb and Dumber, Liar Liar) is on the case to find the Miami Dolphins’ missing mascot and quarterback Dan Marino. 

    He goes eyeball to eyeball with a man-eating shark, stakes out the Miami Dolphins and woos and wows the ladies. Whether he’s undercover, under fire or underwater, he always gets his man... or beast!

  • I will try to be normal,” 12-year-old Ace Ventura Jr. promises. That’s cool, except what’s normal for him is finding missing mutts, kidnapped kitties or gone gators and creating hilarious chaos every step of the way.

    Like father, like son, it’s in his nature to be a pet defective – detective! And when a zoo’s baby panda is stolen and Ace’s mum is Suspect #1, our young hero sets out to clear the family name. It’s a new generation of family fun and goof-brained comedy panda-monium as Ace Ventura Jr. (Josh Flitter of Nancy Drew and License to Wed) teams with adventurous girl-next-door Laura (Emma Lockhart) and nerdish gizmo-wiz A-Plus (Austin Rogers) to chase down leads and laughs. Ready for fun? Allriiiightythen. Ace – Ace Jr. – is on the case!

  • Africa’s the place and Ace is on the case, setting out to rescue an animal he loathes – a bat! Jim Carrey returns as Ace, the alligator-wrasslin’, elephant-calling monkey-shining, loogie-launching pet detective. If you’re ready to laugh like a pack of hyenas, if you want more fun than an industrial-sized barrel of monkeys, you know what to do. Heed the call.

  • What would you do if that special someone dumped you? After seeing the delightful Addicted to Love, the better question is what wouldn’t you do! Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick take a funny look at love’s obsessive side as Maggie and Sam, teaming for revenge when their exes (Kelly Preston and Tcheky Karyo) team for romance. Sam simply wants his girlfriend back. Maggie wants to get back at her old flame. So all over New York’s SoHo, they unleash their diabolical plot. If successful, the two who spurned them will be hapless, hopeless, loveless. And if Cupid has his way, Maggie and Sam just might go from a jilted Who’s Through to a romantic Who’s Who.

  • From the director of “Shameless” and “Phoenix Nights” (Jonny Campbell) comes the truth behind one of the biggest hoaxes in history.

    In 1995, a mysterious piece of top secret black and white footage, supposedly filmed during the Roswell incident of 1947, was broadcast around the World to an expected TV audience. It showed the autopsy of an Alien life form.

    Two men were responsible for the discovery of the footage, best friends Ray (Declan Donnelly) and Gary (Ant McPartlin). The discovery of the film throws them into the centre of a media frenzy and catapults them into the limelight. However, the two have an even bigger secret and if the truth got out what would happen to them?

    Based on true events, Alien Autopsy is the story of two unlikely lads from London who became icons in UFology.

  • A proud woman in red draws leers and admiration. A bosomy tobacconist sparks the fantasies of adolescent boys. A mentally challenged uncle takes refuge in a tree and announces: “I want a woman!“ They are among moments and events knit by memory… and a legendary filmmaker in peak form.

    Amarcord, which means “I remember,” is Federico Fellini’s lusty, often funny look at growing-up perhaps not unlike his own. The setting is a village in 1930s Italy. Teen hormones are surging. Family, church and friendship are proving grounds of love and loyalty. Fascism’s rise is just down the street. Sex is around any corner. And life viewed in the local cinema is a touchstone for life lived. The memories, big and small, endure. So does the appeal of this Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award® winner.

  • Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal team with Lisa Kudrow, Chazz Palminteri and director/co-writer Harold Ramis to make you a comedy offer you can’t refuse in this laugh-out-loud mob hit. 

    De Niro, deftly spoofing the wise guy roles that have been a staple of his estimable career, plays powerful New York crime family racketeer Paul Vitti. Crystal, always one joke ahead of sleeping with the fishes, is shrink Ben Sobel, who has just days to resolve Vitti’s emotional crisis and turn him into a happy, well-adjusted gangster. Yes, Sobel is a family psychiatrist. But surely this isn’t the kind of family he had in mind.

  • Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce based on Joseph Kesselring’s 1941 Broadway hit and breezily directed by Frank Capra. 

    Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who ply lonely geezers with poisoned libations, one sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one bonkers brother (John Alexander) who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane) - and only one night to make it turn out all right. In this circus’ centre ring is Grant, twisting his face into a clown’s gallery of flabbergasted reactions and transforming his natural athletic grace into a rubber-legged comic ballet. You’ll die laughing.
