The classic British TV sitcom gets a second big screen outing with Toby Jones neatly stepping into the polished brogues of Arthur Lowe as Captain Mainwaring. The Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard platoon deal with a visiting female journalist (Catherine Zeta-Jones) doubling as a German spy. D-Day is looming and the rag-tag defenders are required to play a key role as World War II draws to its conclusion. Sound casting (Bill Nighy is laconically perfect as Wilson) and a tweaking of the script to make it slightly more risque result in a solid, enjoyable show.
Director: Oliver Parker
Starring: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tom Courtenay, Mark Gatiss, Sarah Lancashire, Blake Harrison

Charlie Sheen and Valeria Golino are back to lob more gag-grenades in a Rambo-inspired sequel to the jet-propelled 1991 spoof Hot Shots! Some military men have been captured in Iraq but the first rescue mission wasn't too successful. So it's up to Sheen's gung-ho commando Topper Harley to get the men who went in to get the men. Confused? President Lloyd Bridges certainly is.

Teenage superhero-in-waiting Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) starts high school at an elite academy for superheroes... only to find his powers have deserted him. With Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston as Will's pushy superhero parents, this dynamic family yarn manages the cheeky trick of spoofing both Harry Potter and Hollywood's interminable parade of superhero outings. Shucks, it's even got 'Wonder Woman' Lynda Carter on the bill.

Steven Spielberg spoofs it up with Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi in this epic war comedy. Written by Back To The Future team Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, it follows a multitude of characters as 1941 Los Angeles is thrown into hysteria by rumours of a Japanese invasion. It's complete chaos but great fun to see the serious likes of Ned Beatty, Warren Oates, Christopher Lee, and Toshiro Mifune rubbing shoulders with John Candy and the Blues Brothers.

The comedy engineers behind Airplane! dismantle Top Gun and An Officer and a Gentleman to gut-bustingly funny effect. Charlie Sheen stars as the jittery navy pilot who's drafted in to lead a suicide mission. But as usual, spoof veteran Lloyd Bridges commands laughs from every line while Valeria Golino throws herself into her romantic role with impressively straight-faced abandon. Takes your breath away.

Criminal masterminds Michael Caine and Noel Coward pull off the classic caper that blows the bloody doors off all others. When incarcerated crime king Mr Bridger (Coward) gets wind of a stash of gold bullion in Turin, he dispatches Charlie Croker (Caine) - the coolest crook on the outside - to go and nick it. All he needs is a technical genius to cause a traffic jam (Benny Hill! ), a few good drivers, an empty bus and three Minis - one red, one white, one blue...
