2/5 21% Harlem Nights (1989) The plan was to make a latter-day version of a 1930s gangster movie; the result has some nifty costumes, luscious sets and neat music, but, on almost every other count, it's a mess.‐ Radio Times

4/5 75% Grease (1978) It succeeds...thanks to some toe-tapping numbers, sprightly hoofing and slick performances, not least by Stockard Channing as the most unruly teenager in town.‐ Radio Times

3/5 90% Good Morning, Vietnam (1987) The film is distinctive for being Hollywood's first Vietnam comedy and among the first movies to treat the Vietnamese themselves as real people.‐ Radio Times

4/5 97% Big (1988) Big may well be a formula fantasy movie, but Penny Marshall's polished direction combined with Hanks's gauche charm make it the best of the spate of body-swap movies turned out by Hollywood in the late 1980s.‐ Radio Times

4/5 90% Queen Christina (1933) Not a pacey film, but, overall, almost as beautiful as Garbo herself, who, in the end, makes the picture.‐ Radio Times

4/5 74% Fried Green Tomatoes (1991) Essentially a story about friendship between two pairs of women, then and now, it could be classified as an intelligent woman's picture, but this truly uplifting and gratifying movie can and should be enjoyed by all.‐ Radio Times

3/5 61% About Last Night (1986) Lowe and Moore do well as the on-again, off-again partners, although it is James Belushi, in an over-the-top supporting performance his brother John would have been proud of, who all but walks off with the show.‐ Radio Times

5/5 86% Ben-Hur (1959) Some critics believe that William Wyler's box-office smash is no match for the 1925 silent version, but there's no denying that the race that forms the famous climax is one of the most iconic sequences in Hollywood history.‐ Radio Times

4/5 100% Boudu Saved From Drowning (Bondé sauvé des eaux) (1932) It's a neat idea, executed to fine comic effect thanks mainly to a larger-than-life performance from the great French character actor, Michel Simon.‐ Radio Times
