NOT­TING HILL

8.30PM, SEVEN M. 1999. The sim­ple life of a bum­bling book­shop owner changes dra­mat­i­cally when a beau­ti­ful celebrity en­ters his shop. A fan­ci­ful rom­com star­ring Ju­lia Roberts and Hugh Grant, who give such charming per­for­mances that this won’t be the only time you watch Not­ting Hill.

ALONG CAME POLLY

8.30PM, ELEVEN M. 2004. A jilted nerd played by Ben Stiller em­barks on a treach­er­ous re­la­tion­ship with a wacky ex school mate, por­trayed by the gor­geous Jen­nifer Anis­ton. Gor­geous­ness aside, this flick is a pretty mis­er­able mis­fire.

FRIENDS WITH BEN­E­FITS

9.35PM, 9GO! MA. 2011. They try to avoid Hol­ly­wood rom-com-style cliches, but Dy­lan and Jamie soon dis­cover adding sex to their friend­ship leads to com­pli­ca­tions. This screw­ball comedy is bet­ter than its cen­tral theme of sex without com­mit­ment im­plies. Play­ful and funny.

Hugh Grant.
