M. 1993. In­de­pen­dent­minded black woman dis­cov­ers her ar­ti­fi­cially in­sem­i­nated daugh­ter has a white fa­ther – and a drop­kick at that. Ter­mi­nally id­i­otic movie tries out ev­ery con­ceiv­able an­gle on the one-joke idea. You want to like Whoopi Gold­berg and Ted Dan­son, but it’s hard. 8.30pm, Show­time Pre­miere

M. 2011. MI5 of­fi­cer Bill Nighy is thrust into a mys­tery when boss Michael Gam­bon dies, leav­ing be­hind a file that threat­ens the sta­bil­ity of the or­gan­i­sa­tion. Mean­while, a seem­ingly chance en­counter with a po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist Rachel Weisz seems too good to be true. Con­tem­po­rary spy thriller directed by David Hare, the man be­hind stage hit The Blue Room. 9.30pm, Go!

M. 2009. Wel­come to the world of Zom­bieland where the liv­ing dead wan­der around devouring the run­ning scared. It’s a world per­fectly suited to red­neck Woody Har­rel­son, who en­joys killing as many as he can. Funny spoof is rough and ready but a treat for zom­bie fans. 9.30pm, SBS TWO

M. 2007. Bored teacher Zdenek Sverak throws in his job and takes a po­si­tion in a su­per­mar­ket, re­fund­ing de­posits on empty bot­tles. The job opens up op­por­tu­ni­ties for meet­ing peo­ple, act­ing as match­maker and find­ing his daugh­ter a po­ten­tial hus­band (as well as ogling the girls). OK Czech com­edy is a good show­case for the tal­ents of Sverak. Ta­tiana Vil­hel­mova.
