However, his already chaotic life takes a turn for the worse when he and the kids are held hostage by a down-on-his-luck carnival owner. Hilarity ensues as the youngsters throw themselves into their adventure with gusto, while their chauffeur enjoys the experience much less.

9.00pm Changing Lanes (15)

2002 Ben Affleck and Samuel L Jackson star as two men who turn a minor traffic accident into a life or death feud.

When the accident leaves Doyle stranded and at risk of losing access to his children, he becomes determined to get even with the attorney and when some vital documents fall into his hands, he gets that chance, setting in motion a vindictive cycle of retribution. Edge-of-the-seat thriller, which so effectively explores the idea of two perfectly ordinary men losing all perspective and tumbling out of control, it rapidly becomes rather unnerving.
