Ents24 Rating


Genre: Comedy
Director: Peter Farrelly, Bobby Farrelly
Running time: 109 mins

A sequel to the goofy classic about two dimwitted best friends. Twenty years after their road trip to Aspen, Lloyd (Jim Carrey) is in a mental institution. Harry (Jeff Daniels) visits him and realises that he has been feigning illness and got himself committed as a prank. The duo haven't really learnt anything in the intervening years, and haven't really changed, except that Harry now worries about a recent kidney problem. His parents cannot help as he was adopted and they are incompatible donors. However, he looks through some very old mail and finds a letter from an old girlfriend (Kathleen Turner) he had in 1991. It turns out he has a daughter named Penny (Rachel Melvin), so he and Lloyd head out to El Paso in a borrowed hearse to meet her.

15 classification Kon-Tiki


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Historical / Drama
Director: Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg
Running time: 116 mins

A big-budget historical drama about the 1947 Kon-Tiki expedition. Thor Heyerdahl (Pal Sverre Valheim Hagen) is an experimental ethnographer. He theorises that Polynesia was settled by people from South America in pre-Columbian times, whereas the popular theories of the day hold that the first settlers migrated from the West. Thor believes that a lack of technological prowess and sophisticated tools would not have stopped South Americans from making the journey, and he sets out to prove it. Despite the fact that he cannot swim or sail, Thor builds a replica of an indigenous raft using primitive techniques and materials, and recruits a small crew to help him sail across the Pacific from Peru to Polynesia.

pg classification Annie (2014)


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Family / Musical
Director: Will Gluck
Running time: 118 mins

The comic strip that spawned a Broadway musical and a classic film gets a reinvention for a new generation of children. The Annie of this version is a tough but optimistic little girl living in Harlem, and she is about about 400% less irritating than the original Annie, because she is played by sunbeam-in-human-form Quvenzhané Wallis (from Beasts Of The Southern Wild). Along with some other kids, Annie is in the care of her mean foster mother Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz, sadly suffering when compared to the incomparable Carol Burnett), who cuts corners whenever she can and hates children. New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) befriends Annie one day, and they both see an opportunity to better their lives: Annie wants to get away from Miss Hannigan, and Will wants to generate good PR. His conniving campaign advisor (Bobby Cannavale) persuades Will to take Annie in.

He and two friends are stranded in the Pacific for weeks after their plane crashes, and their ordeal worsens when they are rescued by the Japanese and taken to a POW camp.

12a classification Big Eyes


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Drama / Biopic
Director: Tim Burton
Running time: 105 mins

Tim Burton steps away from the Johnny Depp-looking-silly turkeys he's prone to churning out to work with an entirely different group of talented people in this sometimes humdrum biopic about a woman struggling to be recognised for her creativity. Walter Keane (Christophe Waltz) is known as one of the most popular painters of the 1960s. His portraits of waifish children with cartoonishly large eyes sell like hotcakes. But he hides a terrible secret: the paintings were actually created by his wife Margaret (Amy Adams). At first Margaret is swayed by her husband's opinion that 'lady art' doesn't sell, but eventually she grows tired of being in the shadows and begins a decades-long fight against her husband so that she can take credit for her work.
