But if you're in more of a movie mood, then we've got some good news on that front, too...

BECKY

A young girl (Lulu Wilson) has her weekend away reconnecting with her father turned upside down by the arrival of an escaped convict (Kevin James). Despite the presence of the rom-com king, it is actually not terrible: 71% on Rotten Tomatoes.

When the movie arrived in Irish cinemas in November 2021, we said it had the best sex scene from a big Hollywood movie in years. Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jared Leto and more are directed by Ridley Scott in this true-story drama. Check out our interview with star Jeremy Irons right here:
