GO! Sun­day, 9.30pm, MA15+ ( 2011)

Suf­fer­ing early on from a lack of chem­istry be­tween its star leads and ex­pos­i­tory di­a­logue that tries too hard to be sassy and mod­ern, this ro­man­tic com­edy even­tu­ally hits its stride to de­liver just enough love and laugh­ter to jus­tify hang­ing around. Justin Tim­ber­lake plays a more like­able ver­sion of the new- me­dia hot­shot he played in The So­cial Net­work, along­side Mila Ku­nis ( pic­tured) as a cor­po­rate head­hunter who lures him from LA to New York. The ti­tle tells you all you need to know about their ini­tial re­la­tion­ship – and you know how the plot will re­solve. A pre­dictable, light- hearted romp.
