The Switch 8.30pm, Movie One

M. 2010. Man, se­cretly in love with his best friend who plans to have a child by ar­ti­fi­cial in­sem­i­na­tion, drunk­enly switches her donor’s sample with his own. He meets the re­sult­ing off­spring years later. Rom­com stars Jen­nifer Anis­ton and Ja­son Bate­man with the real laughs pro­vided by Jeff Gold­blum and Juli­ette Lewis.

The X Files 9.30pm, Eleven

M. 1999. Big-screen ver­sion of the award­win­ning TV se­ries is great fun for fans, though less so if you’re not fa­mil­iar with the themes and ob­ses­sions of the small-screen ver­sion. You’ll need to keep your wits about you to fol­low the plot. David Du­chovny, Gil­lian An­der­son. House of Branch­ing Love 9.30pm, SBS TWO

M. 2009. Black com­edy from Fin­nish direc­tor Mika Kau­ris­maki, with di­vorc­ing cou­ple Elina Kni­htila and Hannu-Pekka Bjork­man shar­ing the same house, though with strict house rules, such as no new lovers. When the rules are bro­ken, the sit­u­a­tion es­ca­lates out of con­trol. Not all of it is funny, but enough is to have you gig­gling a lot of the time. In­ter­view with The Vam­pire 9.40pm, Go!

AV. 1994. Slow, som­bre film about Brad Pitt’s fate­ful meet­ing with vam­pire Tom Cruise 200 years ago. Given the bite of im­mor­tal­ity, he and Cruise jour­ney through the years, un­til Pitt gives an in­ter­view to a jour­nal­ist, re­count­ing his fate. Beau­ti­fully mounted, but ir­re­deemably dull adap­ta­tion of Anne Rice’s pop­u­lar novel.
