It's not that bad, but then it's not very good, either. Ewan plays singer Curt Wild who discovers a Bowie-type star (Jon Rhys Meyers). Sadly there is no Bowie music but loads of Iggy Pop. Ewan has a good voice and sings a few tunes but this is a self-indulgent trip through glam rock. Great frocks, shame about the acting and story. —————————— by Simon Holden ———————1/10— Teletext rating X (Poor) NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Video Competition Events Racing

He wants to slice and dice poor Laurie L—lje Lee Curtis). This is full of in-jokes and pays homage to Scream. Laurie is a boozy school headmistress struggling through life 20 years after her brother last tried to slay her. Shocks and deaths keep coming in this satisfying sixth (or is it seventh?) sequel. And there's always the fun of spotting who's going to die next. —————————— by Simon Holden ———————2/10— Teletext rating XXX (Adequate) NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Video Competition Events Racing

Cavendish is a middle-aged photographer living on the Isle of Skye. Before xou can say "cheese" they're taking nude pics of each other and thrashing about in bed. The plot thickens when his son arrives and falls for Rosina.
