Kill Keith – Review

Kill Keith – Review

Keith Chegwin's involvement with comedy-horror film Kill Keith certainly gives it something of a novelty appeal - but whether this will be enough to quench the anticipation surrounding this feature remains to be seen. 'Cheggers', as he is somewhat affectionately known, is one of those celebrities for...

Everything Must Go – DVD Review

Everything Must Go  – DVD Review

Everything Must Go has a toned down,  sensible performance from Will Ferrell, which fans of the eccentric comedian may find disappointing. Compared to Will Ferrell's typical crude, outrageous and seam-splitting comedy films, like Anchorman and A Night At The Roxbury, Everything Must Go uses dark humour...

Drowning in a weir, for example, wouldn't seem so bad if the man dispatching you was as witty, intelligent, handsome, suave, not to mention aristocratic as Louis. Kind Hearts and Coronets is the classic...

The Lavender Hill Mob – DVD re-issue Review

The Lavender Hill Mob – DVD re-issue Review

Before Lavender Hill in Clapham became a site of rioting this week, another gang of crooks based on the road resorted to thievery to stick it to the man. This earlier gang however was fictional, as well as being better mannered and much funnier. The classic Ealing comedy from 1951, The Lavender Hill Mob, has...

Horrible Bosses – Review

Horrible Bosses – Review

What kind of a name is Horrible Bosses? Bad Bosses would have been bad enough, but at least it’s alliterative; Rachael-from-Friends-Dyes-Her-Hair-Brown-and-is-Now-a-Totally-Believable-Bad-Guy even has a better ring to it than Horrible Bosses. Come on movie execs, what were you thinking? The name may...

Bridesmaids – Review

Bridesmaids – Review

It seems bizarre that, even now, it can come as a surprise to some people when women are actually, you know, quite funny? Still, raising the bar in terms of this year's cinematic comedy is the almost-all-female cast of Bridesmaids, headed up by the funniest of them all, Kristen Wiig. Wiig does well to...
