The new Bruce Willis movie (collective sigh, I know). Actually this is brilliant and has “won” the box office takings 2 weekends in a row. The acting is superb, especially by the child actor (Haley Joel Osment). It has its moments where I grabbed the seat or the nearest leg, but the “twist” at the end is spectacular 🙂

This is the new film with Tori Spelling in it (woo hoo, I hear you all say). A new gay film – there are a few aren’t there – about a boy who mets a guy (a dancer) and their attempts to find a place to have sex. It is a funny film, and some of the lines in it are magical. Look out for the toilet scene with Miss Coco Peru :-)) Lots of eye candy in this film 🙂 Oh did I mention it has Christian Campbell in it :-))

23 to 29 August
