6.45pm, Show­time Two

M. 2011. Rom-com with Natalie Port­man and Ash­ton Kutcher as friends who al­most ruin ev­ery­thing by hav­ing sex. They de­cide on a ‘‘no-strings at­tached’’ re­la­tion­ship, with no jeal­ousy, no ex­pec­ta­tions, no fight­ing and no flow­ers. But can their friend­ship sur­vive? 8.30pm,Gem

M. 2000. Free-spirit Juli­ette Binoche blows into town and cap­ti­vates taste buds with her de­li­cious cho­co­late cre­ations. The ‘‘re­spectable’’ mayor wants her ban­ished but we know he’ll chew some chocs too. Cho­co­late box of a film looks gor­geous but isn’t as tasty as its ti­tle sug­gests. Johnny Depp. 9.30pm, Go!

MA. 1991. Vi­o­lence is piled on vi­o­lence as burntout in­ves­ti­ga­tor Bruce Wil­lis stum­bles across a con­spir­acy in­volv­ing gam­bling and sports and goes in for the bust with his old footy mate Da­mon Wayans. Lack of hu­mour, an un­der­done screen­play and re­liance on stunts be­comes te­dious. As the scouts say – be pre­pared.

Movie of the Week 9.40pm, 7TWO

M. 1993. Shat­ter­ing, mem­o­rable drama adapted from Thomas Keneally’s novel about Os­car Schindler, who gave sanc­tu­ary in his fac­to­ries to large num­bers of Pol­ish Jews dur­ing WWII. Al­most per­fect cast with Liam Nee­son as Schindler, Ben Kings­ley as his fore­man and Ralph Fi­ennes as an aw­ful Nazi. Filmed doc­u­men­tary-style in black and white, the movie is a tri­umph for art.
