Vertigo Film's 'All-Stars' looks to be a good old fashioned feel-good family flick.
Ashley Jensen stars as a youth worker trying to save her local centre in feel-good 3-D British comedy 'All-Stars,' set for release in May 2013. Just as 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' flew under the radar to become a UK hit last year, we predict 'All-Stars' could enjoy similar success with its solid British cast, which includes Jensen, Mock The Week star Hugh Dennis and Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh.
Written by TV scribe Paul Gerstenberger (Primeval, Paradise Café), 'All-Stars' sees a group of streetwise kids take matters into their own hands when their club is threatened with closure. It all looks good fun, with the kids holding auditions for a talent contest which throws up some great, and not-so-great acts. In the end, street dancer Jayden (Akai Osei-Mansfield) is forced to team up with the loud-mouthed Ethan (Theo Stevenson) to stop the closure of the afterschool club.
Ethan and Jaden are two street kids with a close knit group of friends, Amy, Tim, Rebecca and Brian, who they enjoy spending time with at the Old Garage youth centre in their town run by Gina. However, the small venue has become more of a problem than a necessary building in the eyes of the council who wish to demolish it unless they can cough up enough cash to own it. In an attempt to raise a few pounds, Ethan and Jaden put forward an idea to Gina; to put on acts in a show and sell tickets. Initially sceptical at first, the worried Gina soon allows them free reign as they audition a variety of talent from martial artists to BMXers and skateboarders as well as a several street dancers. Will the kids manage to save their beloved centre, or will their only inspiration for their passions be bulldozed to the ground despite all their efforts?

When his mother (Blackman) purchases the old family home, Lenny (Spall) must cancel his retirement cruise and reunite his four estranged children for a Jewish holiday celebration. But gathering the ruthless capitalist (Callis), eco-warrior (Mitra), ultra-orthodox rabbi (O'Connor) and Buddhist monk (Newman) in the same place will require a miracle. Sure enough, it's a disaster, and Lenny's only hope is that he can stop the war long enough to have dinner together.

'Horrid Henry' star Mat Horne said the 3-D visual format of the family movie was ''right'' for the film because it is aimed at kids.
Mat Horne thinks the 3-D aspect of 'Horrid Henry' was "right" for the film.
The 'Gavin & Stacey' actor - who stars as the titular character's dad in the family movie, which is based on children's books and a TV series of the same name - said the visual format was required because the motion picture is aimed at children.
He told BANG Showbiz: "One reason I did this film is because I wanted to do something in 3-D. I think the style of the film complements the narrative itself because of the audience we're pitching for.

Anjelica Huston found working on 'Horrid Henry: The Movie' ''charming'' because the young British cast were so polite.
Anjelica Huston found working on 'Horrid Henry: The Movie' "charming".
The 60-year-old actress - who plays Miss Battle-Axe in the big screen version of the popular British children's book - says it was nice to work with young English actors because they're very enthusiastic compared to their American counterparts.
She said: "Most of the scenes were with Theo Stevenson (Horrid Henry) but English kids are so polite and enthusiastic, and not blase. I did that movie 'Daddy Day Care', with a bunch of American kids, and they were so sophisticated and scarily together compared with this group, who were sweet and happy and enthusiastic. The Script was very charming, I liked the director and it felt like a good idea to go and play in London for a while."

Henry's never meant to be horrid, but that's just what all the adults (and some children) consider him. If there are worms in someone's sandwich or if there's itching powder in your bed, you can bet Henry's the one who's done it.

Ethan and Jaden are two street kids with a close knit group of friends, Amy,...
A contrived script and clunky direction undermine this British film, which veers from silly comedy...
Based on the books and animated TV series, this far-too-childish 3D comedy is pretty painful...
