00:00 Jack and Jill
Prod Year 2011 - Jack and Jill is a comedy focusing on Jack Sadelstein (Adam Sandler), a successful advertising executive in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife and kids, who dreads one event each year: the Thanksgiving visit of his identical twin sister Jill (also Adam Sandler). Jill's neediness and passive-aggressiveness is maddening to Jack, turning his normally tranquil life upside down.
02:00 Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Prod Year 2006 - #1 NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby stays atop the heap thanks to a pact with his best friend and teammate. But when a French Formula One driver makes his way up the ladder, Bobby's talent and devotion are put to the test.
04:00 Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
Prod Year 2003 - John Connor is now in his 20's, and a female terminator, called T-X or Terminatrix, is after him. Another T-101 is sent back through time to protect John.
06:00 The Tale of Despereaux
Prod Year 2009 - The tale of three unlikely heroes - a misfit mouse who prefers reading books to eating them, an unhappy rat who schemes to leave the darkness of the dungeon, and a bumbling servant girl with cauliflower ears - whose fates are intertwined with that of the castle's princess.
08:00 Mark at the Movies
08:30 Access Hollywood
09:00 Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Prod Year 1987 - Neal Paige is right in the middle of the business trip from hell, but at least he's not traveling alone! The simplest of trips can get complicated and now Paige is encountering disaster at evey turn.
11:00 The Internship
Prod Year 2013 - The digital age means redundancy for old school, motor-mouthed salesmen Billy and Nick (Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson). Out of touch and out of work but desperate to show they're not obsolete, they talk their way into an internship at internet giant Google. Sidelined with a group of young "Noogler" misfits, they have come together and compete with adolescent computer whizz kids for the prize of a job. Vaughn and Wilson repeat the chemistry of Wedding Crashers in a sharp comedy that gently mocks the slightly unsettling culture of Googlerism.
Prod Year 2013 - 30 Rock comedy queen Tina Fey and the ever-affable Paul Rudd head up this likeable romantic drama from About A Boy director Paul Weitz. Fey is Portia Nathan, a Princeton admissions officer whose routine life gets spun upside down when she meets Rudd's John Pressman, a former college classmate now running an offbeat school. Fizzy chemistry from the leads gets quality support from an engaging cast including Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn and Lily Tomlin.
Prod Year 2011 - Competition between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid, over who is the bride's best friend, threatens to upend the life of an out-of-work pastry chef.
17:00 The Change-Up
Prod Year 2011 - Out-of-work actor Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and driven lawyer Dave (Jason Bateman) find themselves living each other's lives when they aren't careful what they wish for. The result is Mitch screwing up a multi-million merger and Dave underperforming when he turns up on the set of a softcore porn shoot. Director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) crafts a filthy-minded comedy that never descends to pure smut thanks to skilful performances from the two leads. Peerless comedienne Leslie Mann also makes the most of the role of Dave's wife, providing a sober foil when things threaten to get too laddish.
19:00 Identity Thief
Prod Year 2012 - The world of hard-up Denver number cruncher and family man Sandy Patterson (Jason Bateman) comes crashing down when he finds himself saddled with thousands of dollars of debt. It turns out another 'Sandy Patterson' has been on a mega spending spree...on a maxed-out credit card in Florida. Following a run-in with the local cops, the real Sandy discovers his shady alter ego is a free-spending bank card scammer (Bridesmaids' Melissa McCarthy) and he sets off to the Sunshine State to bring her to justice. Fast and frenetic road trip comedy from Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses).
21:00 The Hangover Part II
Prod Year 2011 - The dope 'n' booze-battered survivors of the Las Vegas outing – Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha – head to Thailand for the beach wedding of Stu (Ed Helms). Inevitably, despite his insistence on a dry bachelor party, they end up trawling the brothels, strip joints, tattoo parlours and sleazy hotels of Bangkok. Naturally, they don’t remember a thing. And the 16-year-old brother of Stu’s fiancée is missing. Fans of the original will know exactly what to expect.
23:00 The Five-Year Engagement
Prod Year 2012 - The team behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall reunite for another rocky comic romance with Jason Segel and Emily Blunt as a couple who get engaged within a year of meeting but seem destined never to tie the knot. From career moves and cold feet to the psychology of doughnuts, this Judd Apatow production addresses grown-up issues with a rudely healthy sense of humour. Rhys Ifans leads the congregation of dearly beloved supporting characters gathered here today.
