Review - Urban Myths: Les Dawson's Parisienne Adventure

It might be under half an hour long, but this nimbly witty film is both a fitting tribute and charming biopic of one of Britain's best-loved comics.

'The Full Monty' turns 20 this year

Recently, someone told me that when you start trying to remember any kind of anniversary of a favourite movie, the standard rule is you come up with a number as to how long ago you think it premiered and then add five years to the total and, generally, you will be correct at that point. Such is the case with a favourite of mine, The Full Monty, which turns 20! in August of this year.
