The Brady Bunch Movie (12) 1995 Reinvention of the Seventies sitcom, with the all-American family remaining as squeaky clean as ever, only now they inhabit the far more cynical era of the 1990s. The eternally cheesy clan face a testing time as their neighbours scheme to tear down their home to make room for a shopping centre. Comedy, with Shelley Long and Gary Cole keeping tongues firmly in cheek as the time-warped parents (888)

The Tall Men (PG) 1955 Clark Gable shines in this thrilling Western, which sees him play a Civil War veteran from Texas. He and his brother head north in the hope of striking it rich in the Montana goldfields, but instead are recruited into a cattle drive by a wealthy businessman. Along the way, they rescue a female settler from an Indian attack, who sparks a fierce rivalry between the former soldier and his employer. Jane Russell and Robert Ryan also star (888)

The African Queen (PG) 1951 A cinematic gem, this romantic adventure features the perfect pairing of Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. He won his only Oscar for his performance as the booze-sodden captain of a steamer, while she co-stars as a prim missionary who turns to him for help when violence erupts. But the barbed animosity between them begins to fade away as they face increasing danger. With Robert Morley (888)

The Return of the Musketeers (PG) 1989 D'Artagnan reunites his former companions to save the Queen from the evil Cardinal Mazarin, but the latter's cunning plan pits the heroes against each other. Meanwhile, the daughter of a vanquished enemy seeks revenge on the four heroes. Lively swashbuckling adventure which lives up to the standards set by the first two movies. Oliver Reed, Michael York, Frank Finlay and Richard Chamberlain reprise their roles as the swashbuckling rogues alongside Kim Cattrall and C Thomas Howell. Comedy actor Roy Kinnear died part-way through the filming, and a stand-in was used in some of his scenes (888)

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (12) 2004 The struggling owner of a run-down gym is forced to take drastic action to prevent a rival buying the business out from under him and enlists his customers to form a dodgeball team in the hope of triumphing in the US championships. Spirited sporting comedy, featuring Ben Stiller as the arrogant fitness guru intent on taking over Vince Vaughn's establishment. Christine Taylor also stars (888)

The Cell (18) 2000 A psychologist is persuaded to use hi-tech gadgetry and an experimental procedure to enter the mind of a comatose serial killer in a desperate and dangerous bid to discover where he's imprisoned his latest victim. Nightmarish thriller boasting one of Jennifer Lopez's finest performances, bolstered by director Tarsem Singh's approach to special effects sequences. With Vince Vaughn, Vincent D'Onofrio, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Jake Weber (888)

They (15) 2002 A promising college student is shocked when the night terrors which tormented her throughout childhood suddenly return, more vivid than ever. At first she thinks it's just stress but when an old friend who suffered similar nightmares turns up dead, she's forced to face the fact that something sinister is going on. Twitchy psychological chiller, starring Laura Regan, Jon Abrahams, Marc Blucas and Ethan Embry (888)

Mr Nice Guy (15) 1997 A drug lord desperately searches for a missing videotape containing evidence that could send him to prison, but his apparently straightforward task soon runs into trouble in the form of high-kicking TV chef Jackie Chan. Expect all manner of seemingly impossible set pieces as Jackie single-handedly defeats the bad guys. Action-packed adventure, with Richard Norton and Miki Lee
