THE FULL MONTY: Six unemployed men, inspired by a touring group of male strippers decide they can make a small fortune by putting on a striptease show of their own - but with one small difference. They intend to go the "full monty" and strip completely naked! In this hilarious heartfelt comedy, these six friends discover the inner strength to bare it all in front of the world. This "enchantingly funny... crowd-pleasing" comedy (David Ansen, Newsweek) features the music of Donna Summer, Sister Sledge and Tom Jones.

THE HISTORY BOYS: The History Boys is a brilliant, beguiling and extraordinarily entertaining British comedy. In the mid 1 980s in a grey and grim northern Grammar school, a select number of very bright boys are desperately trying to pass the Oxbridge entrance exams. What evolves is a story that effortlessly illustrates the bravado, humour and vulnerability of teenagers as they navigate their way to adulthood.

A FISH CALLED WANDA: Four conniving jewel thieves... Three Yorkshire terriers...Two heaving bosoms and one proper British Barrister. Monty Python's John Cleese and Michael Palin team with Jamie Lee Curtis and Oscar' winner Kevin Kline' in this hilarious comic caper which pits the British high class against the American heist class! A girl called Wanda (Curtis) tries to deceive her Nietzsche quoting boyfriend (Kline), an animal-loving hitman (Palin) and an embarrassment prone attorney (Cleese) out of a fortune in jewels in this hilariously funny force.

THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL: An acclaimed cost lights up this witty romantic comedy from the director of Shakespear in Love. When seven cash-strapped Brits journey to a retirement resort in India, friendship and romance blossom as they touch each other's hearts in the most unexpected ways. In the end, they will all discover that life and love can begin again when you embrace today and let go of the past.

FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL: As enchanting and memorable as any four-star affair, this light-hearted, frothy and hilarious "little" film took the world by storm in 1994, garnering four British Academy Awards and a nomination for the Best Picture Oscar! From the creators of Notting Hill and Love Actually, this incomparably charming hit is accompanied by hours of exciting behind-the-scenes extras, making it truly delightful indeed.
