M. 2006. Based on the Broad­way mu­si­cal, a trio of black fe­male soul singers from Detroit cross over to the pop charts in the early 1960s. Bill Con­don di­rects an en­sem­ble cast that in­cludes Bey­once Knowles, Jen­nifer Hud­son and Anika Noni Rose as The Dreamettes as well as Jamie Foxx and Eddie Mur­phy. 8pm, Ten, Ten SC

PG. 2009. Mon­sters, in­clud­ing the 15m tall Reese Wither­spoon, are re­cruited by the army to save earth af­ter an alien in­va­sion. Cue pitched bat­tles be­tween aliens and friendly mon­sters. Aimed di­rectly at kids this was a 3D de­light but that magic won’t come across on non3D screens. Hugh Lau­rie. 9pm, Seven, Prime7

M. 2005. Nick Hornby’s novel about a cou­ple, whose lives are frus­trated by the man’s ob­ses­sion with soc­cer is adapted for the US with Drew Bar­ry­more an­noyed by Jimmy Fal­lon’s de­vo­tion to a base­ball team. Fal­lon’s ac­tions are so puerile you won­der why she stays with him. A smart girl would run a mile. 10pm, Ten, Ten SC

M. 2008. First and best in­stal­ment in the soon-to-end vampire ro­mance fran­chise based on the best­selling nov­els of Stephanie Mey­ers in­tro­duces the love story be­tween rebel teen Bella and veg­e­tar­ian vampire Ed­ward played by Kris­ten Ste­wart and Robert Pattinson. Fine di­rec­tion from Cather­ine Hard­wicke ( Lords of Dog­town) and a rip­ping sound­track add to the fun.
