Grease 2 (1982)

"Definitely of the so-bad-it's-almost-good genre, this kinda stands the test of time in a camp way, mainly because of the charm of Pfeiffer and Carrington." ‐ Empire Magazine

White Christmas (1954)

"Great songs, gentle humour and a dose of syrup which is not to everyone's tastes, but worth buying to keep that Christmas spirit going until next year." ‐ Empire Magazine

You Can't Take It With You (1938)

"Its stage origins might be all too obvious, but the excellent ensemble cast makes it an enjoyable breeze, and the in-laws meeting scene is farce comedy at its best." ‐ Empire Magazine

Lovely & Amazing (2002)

"Who'd have thought spending 90 minutes with a bunch of neurotic women could be such fun? An intelligent, unassuming drama that's never less than enjoyable." ‐ Empire Magazine

High School Musical (2006)

Must Love Dogs (2005)
