Ricki and the Flash
After deserting her family in a belated bid for stardom with covers band The Flash, ageing rock chick Ricki Rendazzo (Meryl Streep) gets a shot at redemption when her ex (Kevin Kline) calls her back for a family crisis. She might be going nowhere as a musician, but with her daughter Julie (Streep's real-life scion Mamie Gummer) on the verge of a divorce and a breakdown, this could be Ricki's chance to make a comeback as a mother. Marvel's 'Winter Soldier' Sebastian Stan and real-life rocker Rick Springfield join the line-up in this lively comedy drama from the Oscar-winning duo of veteran director Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs) and Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody.
Director: Jonathan Demme
Starring: Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Mamie Gummer, Nick Westrate, Sebastian Stan, Hailey Gates, Rick Springfield, Bernie Worrell

Beware the women scorned in this revenge-of-the-sexes comedy. Vodka-sodden Goldie Hawn, blinkered Bette Midler and downtrodden Diane Keaton are three abandoned New York wives who begin plotting their revenge on their errant ex-husbands who've ditched them for younger models. "Don't get even, darlinks..." advises Ivana Trump in a droll cameo, "just get everything."

Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau form a memorable double act in this superb adaptation of Neil Simon's classic stage comedy as a pair of divorced stick-in-the-muds living in the same flat together. But since Felix (Lemmon) is a neat-freak and Oscar is a total slob, they drive each other crazy. Comic sparks fly from the perfect combination of stars and script.

Two boys from different sides of Georgia's racially divided tracks try to turn a stray mutt into a champion bird dog in this simple but effective Disney drama. Charming performances and bags of heart ensure a healthy dose of sniffles before the end. Based on the same story as the 1940 heartwarmer God Gave Him A Dog.

"Love means never having to say you're sorry" went the tag-line of this unabashed tear-jerker that launched Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal into the bigtime and became one of the biggest hits of the 1970s. A simple tale of two young lovers poked in the heart by the cruel finger of fate, it brought on more runny eyes and noses than the common cold. To all the incurable romantics out there: see it; you won't be sorry.
