It turned 20 years old this year.

Looking to unwind after a busy Budget announcement day?

Well, there are a number of solid movies airing on TV tonight to help you with that.

Here are your options.

Lethal Weapon – Turner Classic Movies – 9pm

Danny Glover and Mel Gibson star in this much-loved buddy cop flick that launched a franchise.

Couples Retreat – Comedy Central – 9pm

Vince Vaughn leads the cast of this critically-panned comedy about four couples who go on a retreat together.

Rams – Film4 – 9pm

This Australian comedy-drama about a feud between two sheep farming brothers (one of whom is played by Sam Neill) has a 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Shrine – Horror Xtra – 9pm

In this 2010 Canadian horror, the search for a missing teen in Poland leads to a rookie reporter encountering deadly cultists.

Gladiator – Sky Showcase – 10pm

“Are you not entertained!?”

Above the Law – Turner Classic Movies – 11.15pm

The quite decent film debut of Steven Seagal.

Dog Soldiers – Film4 – 11.20pm

Last but not least, our pick for tonight takes place in the Scottish Highlands and follows a group of British soldiers who must defend themselves against a pack of werewolves.

Released in 2002 and made on a small budget, Dog Soldiers has stood the test of time as a favourite for horror fans thanks to its very fun screenplay, excellent practical effects and great cast of character actors, including Ireland’s own Liam Cunnigham in a baddie role.
