Turns a political struggle into something thrillingly personal.

The Beat Beneath My Feet

Prick up your donkeys, me old china plate, cos the brown bread are coming back to porridge knife – and they’re headed straight to Hackney. I ain’t taking the gypsy’s. It’s all Babe Ruth. But even Queens Park Ranger than that? This high-concept, low-brained pile of Albert Halls is proper Easter Bunny. You heard Isle of Wight: Cockneys vs Zombies? It's well Robin Hood.

Reuniting the Rubins review - Timothy Spall
Director: Yoav Factor
Cast: Timothy Spall, Honor Blackman, James Callis, Rhona Mitra
Certificate: 12A

Perhaps the most annoying film since Horrid Henry: The Movie, Reuniting the Rubins is a dull, unfunny mess that simply refuses to end.

Dear Ms Galore,

I'm an actress looking to get a break in showbiz and thought I might try my pretty pink fingernails at a Bond movie. As one of the most iconic vaginas into which 007 has attempted re-entry, what are your tips for being a great Bond girl?

Yours sexually,

Tits McGee

And by some crazy random happenstance, this educational pamphlet was right beside it...
