Like the best projects in the genre, this better-than-average true story works mainly because it is more outrageous than fiction. Maria Pitillo (Godzilla) plays a naive country girl who becomes romantically involved with her charming boss (Adam Storke). But she soon discovers that, underneath, he is an absolute monster. When her child is put at risk, she begins plotting her escape. The two leads are watchable enough, and there's sterling work from co-stars Brad Dourif and Cindy Williams.

Office Space director Mike Judge returns to the work place for this puzzling morality tale. Jason Bateman plays Joel, the owner of a factory that produces flavour extracts, who is frustrated by his moribund sex life with wife Suzie (Kristen Wiig). Urged on by his bartender pal Dean (Ben Affleck), Joel hires a gigolo to service Suzie so that he can pursue a sexy - but duplicitous - new employee (Mila Kunis). Add to the mix a horrific factory accident and the impending sale of the company to a huge corporation and you have a bemusing black comedy that is as unfocused as it is unbelievable. All the stars perform below their best, with even the normally reliable JK Simmons (Juno, Up in the Air) not given a chance to shine. Fans of glam rockers Kiss will at least be pleased to see Gene Simmons, who makes a nervous appearance as a slimy injury lawyer.

Winner of the Oscar for best special visual effects, this astute blend of science fact and fiction eerily anticipated the kind of lost-in-space crisis that would actually occur during the Apollo 13 mission just one year later. Gene Hackman, Richard Crenna and James Franciscus successfully combine public confidence with private misgivings as the stranded crew, while Gregory Peck heads the Nasa operation with typical reserve. Director John Sturges makes the most of his space hardware but never gets the domestic drama off the ground, with Lee Grant and the other wives being reduced to mere cardboard cut-outs.

In this lovely comedy, Gregory Peck plays a bankrupt American abroad, who is given the title bank note and told to keep it intact for a month. As the butt of a joke between two rich gamblers, Peck has problems at first, but then finds his "wealth" means he never has to spend a penny because his credit rating is so good. Set in Edwardian London, the picture has a lot of charm and gentle humour, owing to Peck's evident delight in the role and the unobtrusive direction of Ronald Neame. The witty script, based on the story by Mark Twain, was written by Jill Craigie, the film-maker wife of Michael Foot.

This sparkling comedy proved to be a career-resurrecting movie for Julia Roberts, and for once she plays someone who may not get the guy. When she hears her best friend and former lover (Dermot Mulroney) is getting married to Cameron Diaz, Roberts realises she wants to be more than just friends after all. What makes this film - from Muriel's Wedding director PJ Hogan - work so well is that it's not just "The Julia Roberts Show". While she does the bumbling, adorable routine she's best at, the stunning Diaz and superb Rupert Everett (as Roberts's gay friend and accomplice) battle it out for best supporting performance (and both win). You'll cry with laughter when you watch Everett serenade Roberts (in a crowded restaurant) with I Say a Little Prayer. Terrific stuff.

This underrated Alan Ladd vehicle was released a year after his leading role in the classic western Shane, with the actor taking advantage of a concession that enabled American film stars working abroad to be exempt from exorbitant US tax burdens. No, that's not the plot, just the reason for his presence. The story has Ladd playing a common swordsmith whose love for a nobleman's daughter leads him to adopt the guise of the Black Knight in order to prove his worth. Skilled director Tay Garnett - who also made The Postman Always Rings Twice and, more relevantly, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court - brings a fair amount of boisterous charm to this not-to-be-taken-seriously studio-bound Arthurian romp. The 1950s Technicolor is absolutely splendid - check out the clarity of Ladd's blue eyes and blond hair - and the supporting cast of British stalwarts such as Peter Cushing and Harry Andrews is a joy to behold. A better script wouldn't really have helped - and doesn't really matter.

Following on from the box-office success of The Great Escape, this is a rattlingly exciting Second World War escape adventure, with a well-cast Frank Sinatra as Colonel Joseph L Ryan, a tough PoW who seizes a German train delivering Allied prisoners. Sinatra's character is unusually uncompromising, even for him, and the star delivers one of his best performances. Director Mark Robson uses his camera skilfully, and the support cast is exceptionally well chosen: co-star Trevor Howard is always excellent in confrontation roles, and a nod to The Great Escape finds John Leyton (who had a number one hit with Johnny Remember Me in 1961) as a British lieutenant. The eagle-eyed should note Hollywood restaurateur Michael Romanoff as an Italian noble. The film was a major commercial success in its day.

What happens to a Playboy bunny when she's over the hill is the focus of this sweet, daffy comedy. Anna Faris sparkles as hapless man-pleaser Shelley Darlington, who's ejected from the Playboy Mansion when she hits the ripe old age of 27. Shelley finds an outlet for her limited talents when she helps to transform the fortunes of a geeky girls sorority that's threatened with closure, and finds something new in herself in the process. Faris is clearly a talented and attractive actress, but she's let down here by an average script and director Fred Wolf's inability to nail the concept's true comedy potential. That said, there's nice support from Colin Hanks (son of Tom) and Rumer Willis (herself the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis), as well as some great set and wardrobe design. Watch with low expectations and this will be pleasantly surprising.

Following the success of The Nutty Professor, Eddie Murphy completed his transformation from foul-mouthed, fast-talking comic to all-round family entertainer with this, the UK's second-highest grossing film in 1998 (after Titanic). Murphy plays a doctor whose life is turned upside down when his childhood gift - the ability to "talk with the animals" - returns. That's the cue for lots of juvenile gags from a host of guest voices (Garry Shandling, Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres), while the likes of Ossie Davis and Oliver Platt look on bemused. Betty Thomas directs proficiently, but Rex Harrison must be turning in his grave.

What happens to a Playboy bunny when she's over the hill is the focus of this sweet, daffy comedy. Anna Faris sparkles as hapless man-pleaser Shelley Darlington, who's ejected from the Playboy Mansion when she hits the ripe old age of 27. Shelley finds an outlet for her limited talents when she helps to transform the fortunes of a geeky girls sorority that's threatened with closure, and finds something new in herself in the process. Faris is clearly a talented and attractive actress, but she's let down here by an average script and director Fred Wolf's inability to nail the concept's true comedy potential. That said, there's nice support from Colin Hanks (son of Tom) and Rumer Willis (herself the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis), as well as some great set and wardrobe design. Watch with low expectations and this will be pleasantly surprising.

This Tom Cruise blockbuster was a box-office flop in the US after a bumpy gestation, with multiple star pairings attached, too many writers for the Writers Guild of America to comfortably log and a delayed release date. It's at best a perfectly serviceable confection, a caper movie in the North by Northwest mould, except it's pumped up with state-of-the-art effects and maximum racket. Cruise plays mysterious "rogue agent" Roy Miller who embroils ditzy Wichita mechanic June Havens (Cameron Diaz) in a jet-setting espionage adventure. They meet at the airport and Havens accidentally ends up in danger on his plane. When the going gets rough, Miller has a habit of drugging Havens (a recurring, if troubling, gag). Despite big set pieces - mainly chases by road, air and rail - ably handled by director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) and fabulous locations, the film goes in one side of the brain and out the other, leaving little trace. The expected chemistry between the two good-looking leads also never really comes alight. Unlike all the vehicles exploding around them.

This jaw-dropping disaster movie makes director Roland Emmerich's previous outings feel like expensive dress rehearsals. For all their epic destruction, his previous features Independence Day and the lacklustre Godzilla are damp squibs compared to this astonishing, cautionary tale. Rooted loosely in scientific reality, the film piles on the Hollywood excess to deliver a US-centred thrill-ride in which global warming abruptly pushes the planet into a new ice age during one incredible worldwide superstorm. Though there's a human element, focusing on climatologist Dennis Quaid's cross-country journey to Manhattan to rescue his trapped son, Jake Gyllenhaal, it's the weather effects that take centre stage. Putting aside the anticlimactic conclusion, this is cinema as pure spectacle, as tornados, flash floods, hurricanes and snow demolish cities including LA and New York. Never mind that the dialogue is frequently laugh-out-loud cheesy and the performances are often melodramatic, what counts here is the enormous entertainment factor.

Good intentions lead to little of consequence in this underwhelming comedy produced by and starring Vince Vaughn. As usual, the Wedding Crashers star adopts the slick salesman approach as Ronny Valentine, the business partner and best buddy of Nick (played by a typically soppy Kevin James). Winona Ryder is lumbered with playing the wedge that is driven between them - married to Nick but spied by Ronny canoodling with another man (Channing Tatum). So begins a gradual nervous breakdown as Ronny frets over the best course of action, while trying to convince his own long-time love (an impossibly tolerant Jennifer Connelly) that he is husband material. Sadly, much like The Break-Up (which Vaughn also produced), the story lacks credibility and insight, and the gags are often incongruous. Even with veteran director Ron Howard behind the camera, proceedings too often veer off in the wrong direction.

One of those legendary 1950s melodramas, this was treated as a routine release in America and Britain, but hailed as a major work of art by the French (notably Jean-Luc Godard and Fran├žois Truffaut) because it is "un film de Nicholas Ray", the director of Rebel without a Cause and They Live by Night. It stars James Mason, in one of his best roles, as a mild-mannered teacher whose career and marriage are wrecked by his addiction to cortisone, which turns him into a megalomaniac monster. Made in CinemaScope and famous for its dramatic colour scheme (New York cabs are at their yellowest), it is a real humdinger. And it features Walter Matthau, too.

This film should carry a message warning you not to look too deeply for rhyme or reason or you'll end up with a nasty headache. Just ignore the holes in the plot and concentrate instead on the rivalry that develops between hitmen Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas, especially when Stallone becomes enamoured of their target, hacker supreme Julianne Moore. Director Richard Donner lets Banderas get away with a lazy performance, but Stallone has rarely been so interesting.

Marking the directorial debut of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels producer Matthew Vaughn, this decent enough British crime thriller is done few favours by its nondescript title. Daniel Craig plays a rising young drug dealer whose ambition is to make some quick money and then retire early to enjoy it. His plans - involving a massive shipment of ecstasy - are complicated by drugs lord Kenneth Cranham, who asks him to find the wayward daughter of an associate (dodgy businessman Michael Gambon). The performances are good, and Vaughn directs with assuredness and aplomb, but there's an over-familiarity about the subject matter that suggests it's time for Vaughn and his crime-movie contemporaries to seek inspiration elsewhere.
