The Royle Family Returns For BBC Christmas Special


Ricky Tomlinson Sue Johnston

The Royle Family Christmas special became a staple in many homes across the nation, but we've not been blessed with one since 2009. There was meant to be one for 2011, but apparently the creators of the show, Caroline Ahern and Craig Cash didn't get a script sorted in time. If that's true, then they've had extra time to deliver something special this year. 

According to the Metro, Phil Mealey joined the writing team to create a the classically underwhelming festive day that the family are famed and loved for. This time around Dave (played by Cash) will be pitching an idea to Dragons' Den, while Jim has high hopes for a scratch card. In a subplot, there's a particularly busty new neighbour who's moving onto the street, which may be the perfect person for another neighbour, Joe, who's looking for a 'vacant lady'. 

The cult comedy that burst onto screens in 1998, starring Ricky Tomlinson and Sue Johnston, wasn't immediately received with the warmth that it's garnered since, however it didn't take long for critics to come around to the unassuming and pleasantly human comedy. Although there were originally only three series which ended in 2000, its longevity has proved itself in its continued popularity 11 years on.

Imagine Me & You Review


Bad
A massive cinematic industry has been cultivated on the idea that people aren't exactly in control of whom they fall in love with. But movie charades of predetermination often squelch the lure of this subject matter. Such is the fate of Imagine Me & You, a sit-comish Brit romance that waffles between Four Weddings and a Funeral's fuzzy cuteness and Notting Hill's middling novelty. The clever thing here is the homosexual relationship... you'd think. But, nowadays, even the gay angle has become a titillating surrogate for originality.

The mediocrity begins with florist Luce (Lena Headey) meeting Rachel (Piper Perabo) at her wedding to lifelong friend-become-lover Heck (Mathew Goode channeling Hugh Grant). They become smitten girlfriends since Rachel remains sexually confused. And, though Luce tells Heck she's gay -- and he tells womanizer buddy "Coop" (Darren Boyd) -- Heck remains blind to her and his wife's mutual attraction.

Preaching To The Perverted Review


OK
When you wrap your DVD in a faux vinyl S&M mask, you're making a statement. In the case of Preaching to the Perverted, that statement is, "Bondage is fun!"

This silly little comedy out of the UK offers a simple premise sent against a presumably scandalous backdrop: the world of fetish/S&M clubs. It's all fun and games until Johnny Law comes sniffing around, trying to figure out who's behind the clubs (which meet in secret) and how to prosecute them for, er, something. The government's priggishness seems to revolve around problems with shock treatment being practiced on the slave types. Solution: Hire a young "computer whiz" (in this film, that means a guy who knows how to use a chat room) to "infiltrate" the bondage world and gather evidence against them.
