One Starry Christ­mas Three, 1pm Not re­viewed.

Rough Night Sky Pre­miere, 8.30pm Star­ring Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Zoe Kravitz. A fe­male take on male stag-night come­dies here, but the hang­over is the body of a male strip­per ac­ci­den­tally killed at a hen party. Two things count against Rough Night – the eth­i­cal dilemma of whether killing sex work­ers is suitable ma­te­rial for a com­edy, and the fact that Scar­lett Jo­hans­son doesn’t do funny that well. ★★★

The Pu­n­isher TVNZ Duke, 8.30pm

Star­ring Thomas Jane, John Tra­volta. Paint­ing-by-num­bers adap­ta­tion of the Mar­vel comics anti-hero who be­comes a vig­i­lante when his fam­ily is mur­dered by a mob­ster. Lots of ac­tion, ex­plo­sions and light­weight sadis­tic tor­ture scenes. ★★
