OUR FAMILY WEDDING (12A): A predictably fraught ensemble comedy about the clash of cultures between Mexican-American and African-American families, who must grit their teeth and bear their cultural differences for the sake of their love-struck offspring. Lucia (America Ferrera) and her fiancé Marcus (Lance Gross) are head over heels in love. The soon-to-be-weds organise a meal where they intend to get the family introductions out of the way in public but their fathers already know each other – one has towed away the other’s illegally parked car. Our Family Wedding trades heavily on stereotypes, particularly Ontiveros’ character and her brood of God-fearing old dears.
WILD TARGET (12A): This comedy caper is a real romp on the big screen, and one you simply cannot help getting swept away with. Bill Nighy stars as Victor Maynard, a meticulous, lethally efficient, middle-aged and unmarried assassin under the thumb of his domineering mother, simply referred to as Mother (played brilliantly by Eileen Atkins). Emily Blunt is the reckless thief Rose, aiming for the ultimate art con who makes a phone call to Victor as soon as he realises he’s been duped. Victor sets out to perform the deadly hit in a car park but finds himself unable to kill her. This British version of Wild Target, remade from the French film by Pierre Salvadori over 15 years ago, will tickle your laughter buds and make for an enjoyable bigscreen outing. Also starring Rupert Grint.
