8.30pm, One

M. 2005. Sports film about the take-no-pris­on­ers coach who whips the high­school bas­ket­ball team into shape. He de­mands ev­ery one of the trash-talk­ing knuck­le­heads gets good aca­demic grades or they don’t play, which be­comes a source of con­flict. Sa­muel L. Jack­son is the whole show and the sole rea­son for watch­ing. 9.30pm, Go!

M. 2009. Un­even com­edy with Jack Black and Michael Cera as cave­men back at the dawn of time but with to­day’s sen­si­bil­i­ties and jokes. Cast out of their tribe, they move anachro­nis­ti­cally through Bib­li­cal times, meet­ing Cain and Abel and Abra­ham among oth­ers. Some of the gags work well, but too many die like the di­nosaurs. Pre­his­toric movies aren’t what they used to be.
