Raz­zle smooches dazzle in every chore­ographed frame of Michael Gracey’s rags-to-riches fairy tale based on the life of cir­cus im­pre­sario Phineas Tay­lor Bar­num (Hugh Jack­man), with an in­fec­tious score.

3. Coco (PG)

Fam­ily val­ues res­onate far be­yond the land of the liv­ing in Dis­ney Pixar’s uplift­ing com­puter-an­i­mated story scripted by Al­fred Molina and Matthew Aldrich, a valen­tine to Mex­i­can cul­ture.

4. Early Man (PG)

Aard­man An­i­ma­tions turns back the clock thou­sands of years for a charm­ing com­edy of er­rors that traces the his­tory of foot­ball to our club­wield­ing pre­his­toric an­ces­tors. The beau­ti­ful game turns ugly in a knock­about script co-writ­ten by Mark Bur­ton and James Hig­gin­son, as cave­man Dug (Ed­die Red­mayne) chal­lenges a team of Bronze Age su­per­stars to a match.

But it takes con­sid­er­ably longer than 96 min­utes to carry out the two ex­plo­sive heists that book­end Den Of Thieves, a bul­let-rid­dled yarn of rule-bend­ing cops.

9. The 15:17 to Paris (15)
