By Hannah Woodhead

A puppet detective investigates a series of brutal murders in this underwhelming comedy from Brian Henson.

review

Ghostbusters

By David Jenkins

The new Ghostbusters movie is much better than it needed to be, thanks to its stellar (and extremely charming) central cast.

review

By Josh Slater-Williams

Despite Melissa McCarthy’s best efforts this loose capitalist satire is a comically bankrupt affair.

review

Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig again prove they’re a match made in comedy heaven with this superior spoof.

St Vincent

By David Jenkins

Bill Murray plays Scrooge (again) in this sunny, (mildly) funny paean to the meaning of modern sainthood.

review

Bridesmaids

By Kevin Maher

The real shock is that this story of pre-wedding tensions amongst six mismatched bridesmaids is not Apatow-by-numbers.
