A true modern classic, this is one of the most hilarious and compelling films Ive ever seen............. Yes, some scenes are bold, stark and frankly shocking at times, but always played innocently, this means that the film is NEVER OFFENSIVE, as the words are coming from an ingoramus, who innocently tells things as he sees them........ the fact that more intelligent people self monitor / censor what they say, does in no way make them any less ' offensive ' than Borat in fact, Borats innocence and good natured self, never comes accross as anything other than naive and ignorant....... add this to the mans great self humour, and child like take on the world, and this is very sophisticated… Read more

Heart-warming tale of The Windmill Theatre during the 30's & 40's .. Great performances from Dame Judi & Bob (natch!), and surprisingly Will Young as Bertie. A special word of mention also to Kelly Reilly, who not only steals the show as Maureen, but is absolutely beautiful. Of the extras, the 'making off' feature is well worth seeing, and features the real-life original Windmill Girls, all now drawing a pension. What out for Frear's hair in this feature though - it's scary !!

Only he's so good that he's making them look bad so they ship him off to the countryside to a little village in the middle of nowhere. He's still doing everything by the book, which means rounding up all the underage drinkers and glaring at hoodies. His sidekick is Danny, obsessed with Bad Boys II and Point Break, he wants to shoot things while jumping through the air. All goes along nicely until the grisly 'accidents' that keep occurring. Angel thinks they could be… Read more
