7.30pm, Go!

G. 2003. May not be what an au­di­ence wants, un­less they’re un­der 13. Low-rent Princess Diaries rip-off about a noisy, tire­some Amer­i­can teen, who learns her birth fa­ther is an English aris­to­crat and para­chutes in on his life. Tof­fee-nosed English at­ti­tudes are shown in con­trast to re­laxed, egal­i­tar­ian US ones, but you’ll bar­rack for the Poms here. Colin Firth.

Movie of the Week 8.40pm, Ten, Ten SC

M. 2009. Fre­quent flier Ge­orge Clooney trav­els 300,000 miles by plane a year, liv­ing out of airports and ho­tels. His job is to fire work­ers from down­siz­ing com­pa­nies. But he gets the yen to change. Will he do it? Highly en­joy­able with hi­lar­i­ous di­a­logue. Vera Farmiga. 9pm, Seven, Prime7

M. 2002. Funny, in­volv­ing com­edy based on Nick Hornby’s book about a dis­so­lute, wom­an­is­ing play­boy. Hugh Grant is a de­light as prowl­ing se­ducer, de­void of am­bi­tion be­fore he is reformed with the help of a 12-year-old (Ni­cholas Hoult). 9.30pm, SBS TWO

PG. 2004. Hand­some In­dian he­li­copter pi­lot Shahrukh Khan and Pak­istani rich girl Pre­ity Zinta meet when he saves her stranded bus in the moun­tains. Karma takes over. There’s singing and danc­ing to let us know these two are made for each other. Bollywood con­fec­tion at its most ro­man­tic.
