‘Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!’ (2013) U Rating

This Christmas, the unforgettable pupils of St Bernadette’s have set their hearts on competing in the National choir contest “A Song For Christmas”.  But with the headmistress not in favour of the plan, new class teacher Mr Peterson (David Tennant) has his hands full trying to curb the enthusiasm of the kids, not to mention Mr Poppy (Marc    Wootton).   Also starring Pam Ferris and Jessica Hynes, this film is hilarious from start to finish and every bit as good as the first ‘Nativity’ film.  Come along and watch this Christmas cracker on the big screen and enjoy some fantastic festive fun!

‘Twelve in a Box’  (2007)  12 Rating

Twelve In A Box is the laugh-out-loud story (with a cameo appearance by the wonderful Miranda Hart) of 12 former school friends who get together for a reunion they will never forget.  Each are given the chance to win £1 million, the catch being that they cannot leave the estate for 96 hours.  Plus, anyone who enters the grounds must also stay for the duration!  With time ticking, the mismatched dozen are forced to work together to keep the peace and work toward their payday.  But, when they have to deal with an untimely death, a kidnapping plot, another corpse, burglars, and then even a visit from the boys in blue, will this hapless clan be able to hold it together or will their dreams of riches be buried with the bodies?

‘Nights in Rodanthe’  (2009)  PG Rating

Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, this film is unapologetically              sentimental, and enjoyable completely on its own terms; a small gem of an escape, complete with storm-tossed coastline.  Diane Lane stars as Adrienne, a wronged wife whose husband (Christopher Meloni) begs for another chance.  She goes to clear her head at a remote North Carolina inn, where the sole occupant is Paul, a doctor, played by Richard Gere, who is battling his own demons.  Gere and Lane both give superb performances as people of a certain age, who haven’t yet given up on love.  The cinematography is     stunning too: the foamy seas, desolate sand dunes and bleached skies adding to the feelings of loneliness and desolation.  This is a beautifully told love story; heartbreaking and captivating.

‘The Boys in Blue’  (1982)  PG Rating

The British comedy team of Tommy Cannon and Bobby Ball star in this screwball comedy as Sergeant Cannon and PC Ball: policemen who run the police station in the quiet town of Little Botham.  When the station is threatened with closure owing to the exceptionally low crime rate, the pair fabricate a phony crime wave to make it look as though they’re needed after all.  But when they attempt to steal a      valuable painting from Lloyd (Roy Kinnear), one of the richest men in town, they find that a gang of real art thieves have been at work, and now they have a serious case to crack.  ‘The Boys in Blue’ is a remake of ‘Ask a Policeman’, a 1938 vehicle for British comedy star Will Hay.

‘Zookeeper’ (2011)  PG Rating

All the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo love their kind-hearted caretaker, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James).  But realising that he prefers the company of wild animals to humans, Griffin decides the only way to get the girl of his dreams is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job to win her over.  The animals, in a panic, decide to break their time-honoured code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk.  To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship, in their own unique way! There’s plenty of star power in the film, including the voice talents of        Sylvester Stallone as Joe the lion and Cher as his lioness, Adam Sandler as Donald the monkey, and Nick Nolte as Bernie the gorilla.  If you’re looking for a moral in the story, then maybe it is to be careful what you wish for: what you think you want might not be anything like what you really need.  Hopefully though, you’ll be looking for easy entertainment, in which case this film is a great comedy with plenty of cheap laughs.
