HOUSEBROKEN (Show­box, cert 15, £15.99)

WE don’t see a lot of Get Shorty star Danny De Vito these days which is a shame, but there are flashes of the comic ge­nius from films like War Of The Roses in this some­times a-lit­tle-too-crude story of re­tired fire­fighter Cathkart (De Vito) look­ing for­ward to en­joy­ing his golden years. But first, he has to get his 20-some­thing slacker sons (Ryan Hansen and Skyler Stone) to leave home and give him some peace and quiet. By way of a sharp shock he takes off on hol­i­day leav­ing them with an empty fridge, empty wal­lets and no elec­tric­ity. Chaos en­sues.

WIN IT: Name Danny’s co-star in Twins. En­tries to Alex Gor­don, Housebroken com­pe­ti­tion.

ROBO-GEISHA (Cine Asia, cert 18, £15.99)

IF you like crazy OTT Asian ac­tion films then this one from the Ma­chine Girl team should rock your boat. It’s mad, bad and gory but crazy fun with eye-bog­gling spe­cial ef­fects. The plot is nat­u­rally daft, but fans of this sort of film will go along with the idea of a ty­coon dream­ing of world dom­i­na­tion by cre­at­ing an army of beau­ti­ful-but-deadly half-hu­man, half-robot geisha killers, armed with an ar­ray of most-un­likely weapons. It’s also the story of two sis­ters at war whose squab­bles end up with them be­ing pit­ted against each other in a fight to the death.

WIN IT: Name an­other film about a fe­male as­sas­sin. En­tries to Alex Gor­don, Robo com­pe­ti­tion.
