Critic’s Choice Noon, Gem ★★★ G. 1963. The­atre critic Bob Hope lam­basts a stage play which, to his cha­grin, goes on to great suc­cess. Worse, comes the re­al­i­sa­tion that the play was writ­ten by wife Lu­cille Ball. Not that great but Bob and Lu­cille are a great team. Con­fetti 8.30pm, Eleven ★★ M. 2006. Imag­ine a re­al­ity TV show that had three cou­ples each pre­pared to do some­thing crazy on their wed­ding day in or­der to win a prize. All too easy to imag­ine in these days of Big Brother, which makes this com­edy mock­u­men­tary about three such cou­ples less en­ter­tain­ing than it might be. It’s still fun though, even as you cringe with em­bar­rass­ment. Martin Free­man, Jes­sica Steven­son. A Life Less Or­di­nary 9.30pm, Go! ★★ M. 1997. Hard to get much more or­di­nary than this unin­spired pas­tiche of teen come­dies, road movies and ce­les­tial fan­tasies. Ewan Mc­gre­gor is a nerd who kid­naps rich brat Cameron Diaz lead­ing to a car chase, bank rob­beries and gun­fights. De­press­ing to see so much tal­ent thrown away on non­sense. In­cep­tion 9.30pm, Movie Two ★★★★ M. 2010. It has only been out for just over a year and a half and al­ready this ex­tra­or­di­nary cin­e­matic cre­ation by Christo­pher Nolan is con­sid­ered a clas­sic. The film tracks the work of a trou­bled agent Leonardo Dicaprio as he steals in­for­ma­tion from peo­ple’s dreams. When he gets the job of a life­time, he as­sem­bles a crack team for the dan­ger­ous new mis­sion. Joseph Gor­don-levitt, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page.
