Tom Cruise reprises his role as IMF agent Ethan Hunt in Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble — Ghost Pro­to­col (Satur­day, 8.30pm, Ten), the fourth in­stal­ment and high­est-gross­ing film in the se­ries. Also the high­est-gross­ing per­for­mance by Cruise, the movie was a crit­i­cal and com­mer­cial suc­cess. Di­rec­tor Brad Bird shot with IMAX cam­eras for 30 min­utes of run­time of­fer­ing greater viewer im­mer­sion with a higher-qual­ity im­age fin­ish. There’s nice prickly re­venge com­edy in The Other Woman (Sun­day, 9pm, Ten), di­rected by Nick Cas­savetes, star­ring Cameron Diaz, Kate Up­ton and Les­lie Mann. New York lawyer Carly Whit­ten (Diaz) lives by strict rules in ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ships, but falls un­ex­pect­edly for suave Mark King (Niko­laj Coster-Wal­dau). A sur­prise visit to Mark’s home re­veals he is in fact mar­ried to de­voted house­wife Kate (Mann). But dodgy Mark has also been see­ing a third chick (Up­ton). If you’re an Owen Wil­son fan, there’s Drill­bit Tay­lor (Tues­day, 8.30pm, Eleven), in which three high school best friends des­per­ate to pro­tect them­selves from a sadis­tic bully place an ad in a magazine and Wil­son’s down-on-his luck mer­ce­nary is ready for ac­tion. He is the best thing in the movie.
