I grew up in a former British colony and in the 80s we only had one television station so you had no choice but to watch whatever was on (unless of course you rented a movie or something). This show came on at night and was hugely popular. I recently started looking at it again and it has...

Ouch - in this sharp, biting film based on a play, two yuppie couples misbehave over a dispute between their boys.  The comedic aspects take awhile to shine through the brutality of their attempts at diplomacy.

I've found another guilty pleasure movie! 17 Again is a fresh take on the old "grown-up suddenly becomes teenager" theme. Matthew Perry plays Mike, a washed-up, soon-to-be-divorced father who suddenly, you guessed it, is 17 again, and looks just like Zac Efron. The twist here is that Mike and...
