M. 1998. Ma­nip­u­la­tive mar­ried man Tom Ir­win con­vinces the vul­ner­a­ble Tracey Gold to murder his wife so they can be to­gether. She goes through with the crime, but it preys on her mind, even­tu­ally threat­en­ing her men­tal state. Ragged psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller never con­vinces. 2pm, 7TWO

PG. 1965. Lana Turner and her wardrobe are mar­ried to younger man, Cliff Robert­son, who has a wan­der­ing eye. What with keep­ing him in line – and won­der­ing what to wear for din­ner – you can see how a girl can get pretty fraz­zled. 8.30pm, Ten, Ten SC

M. 2010. More raz­zle-dazzle in the Iron Man fran­chise with Robert Downey Jr be­ing pres­sured by the mil­i­tary to re­veal the se­cret of his suit and, at the same time, bat­tling venge­ful Rus­sian sci­en­tist Mickey Rourke, who’s de­vel­oped a suit that may be su­pe­rior to Iron Man’s. Great per­for­mances from the wise-crack­ing Downey and the hulk­ing Rourke and lots of comic-strip ac­tion. 8.30pm, Gem

M. 1998. Sprightly com­edy that shows us what hap­pens when Gwyneth Pal­trow dis­cov­ers her boyfriend in bed with an­other woman and what might have hap­pened if she hadn’t. Con­stant switch­ing be­tween the two sce­nar­ios keeps you on your toes and keeps the laughs flow­ing. Just the tonic for jaded ro­man­tics. John Han­nah. 10.05pm, SBS TWO

MA. 2009. Reclu­sive It­suji Itao, un­able to han­dle a real-life re­la­tion­ship, pro­cures a blow-up sex doll for his plea­sure. How­ever, the doll grad­u­ally as­sumes hu­man char­ac­ter­is­tics and takes on a life of her own, ven­tur­ing out into the real world. Whim­si­cal, touch­ing look at lone­li­ness and the dif­fi­culty some peo­ple have in­ter­act­ing with other peo­ple. Doona Bae.
