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.

Playing like an elongated episode of a glitzy soap, this poor adaptation of Diana Palmer's novel is strictly for fans of undemanding potboilers. Director Timothy Bond throws subtlety to the wind as he chronicles Jonathan Cake and Joely Collins's scheme to prise Kevin Otto from the avaricious grasp of his business adviser, Denise Virieux. With Collins masking unrequited love for Otto (the boss she's loyally served for years) and Cake falling for the girl he's transformed to save his brother's fortune, this can only end in tears - and they'll probably be yours for having stuck with this movie.

Fans of Rowan Atkinson's rubber-faced brand of physical comedy will know what to expect from this unassuming slice of slapstick. Based around a character portrayed by the Mr Bean star in a series of Barclaycard adverts, it utilises a very British strain of schoolboy humour to send up another home-grown institution - the James Bond-style superspy. Atkinson plays the titular hero, an enthusiastic but bumbling intelligence agent appointed to track down those behind the theft of the crown jewels. In a performance comprised largely of facial tics, childish pratfalls and poo jokes, Atkinson manages to bring the simplistic screenplay to life - and even gets the girl (Natalie Imbruglia) in the process. Sliding Doors director Peter Howitt aims the movie directly at family audiences, forgoing subtlety for youngster-friendly sight gags, while the actors - particularly John Malkovich as a French megalomaniac - seem to relish the opportunity to lark around.

In a surprisingly inventive comedy that doesn't rely on cheap, gross-out laughs, a stag do in Las Vegas for about-to-be-wed Doug (Justin Bartha) takes a turn for the unusual. This terrific romp from Old School director Todd Phillips sees Doug's three friends (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis) wake up after the excessive night before with no sign of the prospective groom and no memory of the evening's events. What they do have is a wrecked hotel suite occupied by a baby and, more worryingly, a tiger. As the befuddled buddies go back over the trail of their wild night (which includes encounters with Heather Graham's stripper and Mike Tyson, playing himself), they soon discover how extreme their escapades have been. It's cleverly plotted and packed with believable dialogue and hilarious situations, which effectively blend the deadpan with the hysterical. If Superbad and Knocked Up were the comedies of 2008, then The Hangover is surely one of the funniest of 2009, if not the last decade.

In a surprisingly inventive comedy that doesn't rely on cheap, gross-out laughs, a stag do in Las Vegas for about-to-be-wed Doug (Justin Bartha) takes a turn for the unusual. This terrific romp from Old School director Todd Phillips sees Doug's three friends (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis) wake up after the excessive night before with no sign of the prospective groom and no memory of the evening's events. What they do have is a wrecked hotel suite occupied by a baby and, more worryingly, a tiger. As the befuddled buddies go back over the trail of their wild night (which includes encounters with Heather Graham's stripper and Mike Tyson, playing himself), they soon discover how extreme their escapades have been. It's cleverly plotted and packed with believable dialogue and hilarious situations, which effectively blend the deadpan with the hysterical. If Superbad and Knocked Up were the comedies of 2008, then The Hangover is surely one of the funniest of 2009, if not the last decade.

A truly unique shocker, this mixture of social comment and splatter horror will definitely not be to everyone's taste. Is Billy Warlock just paranoid about his well-respected Beverly Hills family? Or do they really get up to unspeakable taboo-breaking orgies when he's not around? The answer involves a great deal of special make-up effects, including torso distortion, melting flesh, deviant gender blurring and surreal spectacle. Disturbing and silly in roughly equal amounts, this over-the-top exposé of what the rich are really doing to the poor marked the directing debut of Brian Yuzna, whose credits as producer include 1985's Re-Animator and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

James Woods seemingly has a knack for spotting mediocre movies with roles that give him the chance to shine when his co-stars are floundering. This is a case in point, as he strides off with Luis Llosa's bomb thriller without even getting his hair mussed. Sylvester Stallone stars as an explosives expert and former colleague of Woods, who is hired by the mysterious Sharon Stone to avenge the death of her parents. There is, of course, more to her motives than is at first apparent. The stars apart, it's the robust playing of the supporting cast (which includes Rod Steiger and Eric Roberts as Miami mobsters) that really makes this worth watching. John Barry's lush score adds to the mix, too.

This romantic and glamorous mix of the sentimental and the supernatural reaps higher rewards than Patrick Swayze's acting ability deserves. He plays the murdered banker trying to warn girlfriend Demi Moore she's in mortal danger via psychic Whoopi Goldberg, who provides the comic moments so necessary to lighten the potentially maudlin atmosphere. In fact, her performance is so good, she deservedly won a best supporting actress Oscar. The special effects are a real treat, the love-beyond-the-grave theme is very touching and the ending is a wonderful piece of schmaltz. Who says sweetness and light are, er, dead?
