7.30pm, Go!

M. 2007. Nanny Scar­lett Jo­hans­son takes on the job from hell, with in­sane em­ploy­ers and a kid she can barely stand. The movie doesn’t ex­plain why she keeps work­ing there and, since we can’t fig­ure that out ei­ther, we quickly lose in­ter­est in her predica­ment. Unlovely com­edy. Donna Mur­phy. 7.30pm, 7TWO

PG. 1983. When Michael Keaton is made re­dun­dant by his com­pany, he be­comes a house­hus­band while his wife Teri Garr earns the bread. Think of ev­ery sit­com you’ve seen, then wait for the jokes: Keaton tempted by a neigh­bour, Garr pur­sued by the com­pany wolf, etc. Not quite as bad as it sounds. An okay time passer. 9.30pm, Eleven

M. 2006. Cap­ti­vat­ing though me­an­der­ing fairy­tale with Christina Ricci as an heiress cursed with the nose of a piglet, which she can only lose if some­one loves her for who she is. Ricci is a sym­pa­thetic hero­ine and James McAvoy shines as the likely spell-breaker. A good cast, in­clud­ing Richard E. Grant, adds to the fun.
