Hanks's performance is interesting but not compelling. His character's endless pretentious pontifications become so boring that they are more likely to cause viewers to tune out rather than in. ——————————————————————————————————2/7—— Total Entertainment 300 Get BEACH BOYS & other tickets Ticketmaster 0870 4000771 or p646 Big Picture Letters Film news Events

The gospel soundtrack isn't up to the Coens' usual high standards. Like all their films it is nicely wrapped up but lacks their sparkle and big laughs. Extras include out-takes, additional songs and a documentary on the man who made the film's instruments. ——————————————————————————————————3/7—— Teletext rating ** (So-so) BAMBOOZLE!

It focuses on creatures including whales, penguins, polar bears and bizarre deep-sea life forms, some of which have never been filmed. David Attenborough's narration has been replaced by an orchestral score and less wordy narration by Michael Gambon. Beautiful and awe-inspiring. ——————————————————————————————————4/7—— PhoneZone - ringtones, etc 590 ITV1 IS LOVE IN THE AIR FOR YOU? p148 Big Picture Letters Film news Events

Things get complicated when their cabaret act becomes a hit and Connie falls for a straight guy (David Duchovny) who thinks she's a man. Vardalos's film is mildly amusing but this is no Some Like It Hot and doesn't have the same broad appeal as My Big Fat Greek Wedding. ——————————————————————————————————6/7—— Teletext rating ** (So-so) Had an accident?
