The Switch 7.30pm, Movie One ★★ M. 2010. Man se­cretly in love with his best friend, who plans to have a child by ar­ti­fi­cial in­sem­i­na­tion, drunk­enly switches her donor’s sam­ple with his own. The pair have a son whom he meets years later. How much you like this rom­com, di­rected by Will Speck ( Blades of Glory), will de­pend on how much you like stars Ja­son Bate­man and Jen­nifer Anis­ton. The Trans­porter 8.30pm, One ★★★ M. 2002. Un­der­world courier Ja­son Statham lives by a set of iron rules. He breaks one– sneak­ing a peak at one of the pack­ages he’s car­ry­ing. Things go awry and he’s run­ning for his life. Ter­rific ac­tion pic barely leaves you time to con­sider how ridicu­lous it is. Shu Qui. Edtv 8.30pm, Eleven ★★ M. 1999. Work­ing­class no­body Matthew Mc­conaughey is se­lected by a down­ward-spi­ralling TV sta­tion to be the sub­ject of a 24-hour in­tru­sion show. Au­di­ences love watch­ing him eat, sleep and ro­mance Jenna Elf­man, but he soon tires of be­ing a gold­fish. Pretty good satire on the aw­ful­ness of re­al­ity TV. A Good Year 10.30pm, Ten, Ten SC ★★ M. 2006. Sick of the cor­po­rate life, jaded in­vest­ment banker Rus­sell Crowe re­pairs to the French vine­yard left to him by Un­cle Al­bert Fin­ney, where the good life, the food, the wine and the girls work their magic. Di­rec­tor Ri­d­ley Scott and star Crowe thrill us with their epics but their fee­ble at­tempt at ro­man­tic com­edy is like stale camem­bert washed down with corked wine.
