GO!, Fri­day, 9.10pm, M ( 1998)

One of the best po­lit­i­cal satires to em­i­nate from Hol­ly­wood. Two ’ 90s kids ( Tobey Maguire and Reese Wither­spoon, left) are trans­ported by a mag­i­cal re­mote con­trol into the world of their favourite ’ 50s TV sit­com, only to dis­cover that be­hind the fa­cade of in­no­cence is a dark and in­tol­er­ant so­ci­ety. Fire­brand Wither­spoon isn’t too pleased to be there and sets about mod­ernising the place. The plot is lifted out of po­ten­tial cheesi­ness by truly stun­ning vi­su­als that con­trast a drab mono­chrome so­ci­ety with – lit­er­ally – colourful late- 20th­cen­tury sen­si­bil­i­ties.
