Girls! Girls! Girls!
(1962) Elvis Presley stars in Norman Taurog's musical as Ross Carpenter, a tuna boat fisherman in Hawaii who has two girls after him.Sadly, not a starring role for Father Jack, but Elvis in one of his limper offerings. A lightweight story (even by his standards) has the gyrating one as a poor fisherman in Hawaii who does a bit of nightclub singing to pay the rent and buy back his daddy's fishing boat. Chasing him about a bit are two girls (Stevens and Goodwin), although only one of them catches her man in the end. The usual compensation for having to endure these silly goings-on is the songs but, even in this department, the film is badly wanting. I mean, does 'Song of the Shrimp' get you going? No, thought not.

Life Is Beautiful
(1997) A Jewish father makes a joke out of a concentration camp, to his shield his young son from the terrible truth and allow him to survive.This Oscar-winning comedy plays the Holocaust for laughs, with a father making a joke out of a concentration camp, to his shield his young son from the terrible truth
Life Is Beautiful Roberto Benigni's Life Is Beautiful was loved by audiences and awards juries alike when it was first released, and had a wide-ranging appeal. All this belied its controversial treatment of a subject matter verging on the taboo: this film dared to treat the Holocaust as a subject for comedy.

He is unaware that she is the sweetheart of Dewey Connors (Dana Andrews) who is about to become his commanding officer. Engaging wartime adventure blending romance and action, with Oscar-winning special effects.

Carry On Abroad
(1972) Sid James and the usual suspects head for the Spanish resort of Elsbels, to be met by rep Kenneth Williams in one of the best Carry On films.As the tagline said, it's about "The holiday of a laugh-time". Sid James and a group of British holiday-makers head for the Spanish resort of Elsbels, to be met by rep Kenneth Williams
Carry On Abroad From the moment the key characters are introduced, you know what you're in for. Sid James and Joan Sims play Vic and Cora Flange. Actually, hang on. From the moment you see the words "Carry On..." you know what you're in for. Innuendo, punning, slapstick, campness, unsubtle satire and a whole overflowing suitcase of music-hall hangovers.

Bring It On
(2000) Kirsten Dunst finds that being made captain of her high school's award-winning cheerleading team isn't all plain sailing.Resisting the current trend for teen comedies to indulge in gross-out and satire, Bring It On is a likeable comedy that celebrates, in irony-free fashion, the fine art of cheerleading
Bring It On Here's the strange thing: Bring It On isn't a satire. In fact, it's a film that has nothing but admiration for America's pom-pom girls (and boys). It doesn't treat them as objects of ridicule, or American Beauty-style figures of distant lust for middle-age men.

The Entity
(1981) Sidney J Furie's thriller stars Barbara Hershey as a divorced mother who becomes the victim of a poltergeist which she claims assaulted and her.

Black Widow
(1987) Satisfying, clever noir - with Debra Winger as a Justice department agent investigating the deaths of several rich old men.Debra Winger's DA is drawn into Theresa Russell's web of murderous intrigue
Russell and Winger, who have to be two of the most under-rated actresses around, are the sparring partners in this clever little thriller. Russell plays a serial hubby-hunter who kills off her sugar daddies once she's wormed her way into their wills. She's chased by Winger's DA - a scruffy, self-conscious workaholic whose professionalism falters in the dazzle of her prey's glamorous lifestyle and overt sexuality. The film's success is largely down to Rafelson's menacing direction and Winger's convincing struggle with temptation.
