A mainstay genre, as old as the hills, good for a laugh, light in tone, and not to be taken too seriously…

The "Wolf Pack" return for another sh*t-faced outing, this time at pre-wedding celebrations of Stu's (Ed Helms) imminent wedding in Thailand.

Kristen Wiig and Rose Byrne bitch it out in this enjoyably, tastefully vulgar comedy as they compete to be maid-of-honour at their friend's wedding. Comedienne-of-the-moment Kristen Wiig co-wrote the script herself, and her popular comic charisma carries this further than it would without her. Much touted…

A pair of Russian refugees settle in Auckland to make art and a new home in this eccentric yet accessible 'art comedy' from screenwriter and playwright-turned-director Stephen Sinclair. Lacks a certain finesse that is not helped by the miniscule budget, but it's conceptually sound and redeemingly well…

Deeply irreverent fantasy romp clearly conceived in a cloud of pot smoke has Franco and McBride desperate to rescue Deschanel from an evil wizard before she's sacrificed at a lunar ritual called "The F#*kening". Randy minotaurs, bone-swords and dick jokes aplenty feature in this sloppy pastiche, but its…

Literate and defiantly non-conformist, this snob comedy about an eccentric failure in the arts and his rickshaw driver-cum-biographer (Jesse Eisenberg) succeeds in nailing the idiosyncrasy of its world, with spurts of inspired absurdism. Has been compared to the comedies of Wes Anderson, but its…

The creators of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ make a beeline for America's UFO heartland in this comedy about two sci-fi nerds who befriend a smart-alec alien. The American setting (and director) sees writer-actor team Pegg and Frost watering down their brand of precocious, very English satire for…

Action/Adventure Rental DVD & VHS

Ray Winstone is lured to New Zealand in this turn-of-the-century chase movie, in which the hulking Brit plays a master South African tracker pursuing the bounty on a 'savage' wrongly accused of murder. Entertaining cannon fodder, this is yet another comic book adaptation of assassins on the lam, but one distinguished by its dynamite cast and palpable sense of fun.

Classics Rental DVD & VHS

Taken from Dashiell Hammett's novel, this near-perfect comedy-thriller virtually invented the genre, with William Powell and Myrna Loy as partners in detection who intersperse a constant stream of witty banter and early cocktails with trying to solve the mystery of a missing scientist.

Paul Giamatti fans will find much to enjoy in this bittersweet character piece in which he plays a jaded TV producer who reflects on his varied successes and failures, and the three key women in his life through the decades. Another small scale triumph from dir. Kelly Reichardt, here miniaturizing the experience of early American settlers making the treacherous journey along the Oregon Trail under the guidance of a suspect mountain scout.
