Sport, comedy, misinformed parents and romance. A really enjoyable movie which is worth watching if you're flicking the TV around this evening.
X-Men: The Last Stand - Film4 - 6.55pm
The third instalment of the comic book franchise is a bit all over the place. But it's also a lot of fun all the same.
Magic Mike - Comedy Central - 9pm
My neighbour went to see this in the cinema and told me that it's full of lads taking their clothes off but there's also a good story in it as well.
So I'm relaying his review to you now.
The Ugly Truth - E! Entertainment - 9pm
When this movie was released in 2009, The Guardian's Sady Doyle said "this is a movie for women who hate women."
Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl star.
Dirty Grandpa - Film4 - 9pm
How on earth did this ever get made?
Book Club - Channel 4 - 9pm
Four friends read 50 Shades of Grey as part of their book club and things start to change. Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen star.
Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool - RTÉ2 - 9.40pm
Adapted from the 1986 memoir by Peter Turner, it follows the final years of the life of actress Gloria Grahame as she lives with a terminal illness.

This was on RTÉ2 last night and is a very underrated movie. Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are a hell of a duo.
