A competitive couple’s regular game night goes awry. Well-sustained comedy of murder-mystery-meets-real-life errors with a smart cast and generally solid script, plus some pizazz in the execution. Undemanding fun if you go with it.

A veteran secret service agent goes on the run after he’s framed for a presidential assassination attempt. Third and best of the Gerry Butler actioners, this is reliable thick ear entertainment with some quality villainy from Danny Huston, and some excellent stuntwork (tho some iffy lighting of greenscreen studio space). Fun while it’s on.

The ageing Laurel and Hardy reunite for a UK theatre tour, hopeful that this will restart their movie careers. Straightforward though handsome and respectful biopic of the black-and-white comedy legends, anchored by two exceptional lead performances and genuine affection for its subjects. Recommended.
