RE­VIEW: SHOW ME THE MOVIE

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Regional Extra - - Front Page - with KYLIE WIL­SON

SHOW: Show Me The Movie CHAN­NEL: WIN Net­work TIME: Thurs, 7.30pm

ROVE McManus is fast be­com­ing Aus­tralian tele­vi­sion’s go-to guy when it comes to pop cul­ture fun.

He has been lend­ing a voice to Aus­tralian Doc­tor Who fans in re­cent years at the helm of the highly en­joy­able Who­vians on the ABC, and is now head­ing up the movie themed trivia show, Show Me The Movie!

Show Me The Movie! fea­tures two com­pet­ing teams cap­tained by ac­claimed ac­tor Jane Har­ber and com­edy star Joel Creasey.

The show cel­e­brates the good, the bad and the ugly of the big screen, and the stars, Alist gos­sip, iconic movie di­a­logue and clas­sic cin­e­matic mo­ments all get a com­edy makeover.

Rove con­tin­ues to be a re­li­ably per­son­able host­ing pres­ence in this show, which mixes trivia and com­edy much like the mu­sic show Spicks and Specks did in the past.

As with most com­edy quiz shows, who wins and who loses tends to be fairly ir­rel­e­vant, as much of the fun to be had is in try­ing to guess the an­swers your­self and en­joy­ing the ban­ter along the way.

And while the for­mat is noth­ing new, it is a ser­vice­able dose of mid­week brain candy that the fam­ily can en­joy.

RE­TURN TO OUR SCREENS: Rove McManus in Show Me The Movie.
