CALENDAR GIRLS
Herald rating: * * *

WHITE CHICKS
Herald rating: * *

Two black FBI agents move to the Hamptons and masquerade as a pair of Paris Hilton-style hotel heiresses. Their disguises are so stupid they don't appear at all believable, but this somehow makes it easier to suspend your disbelief and laugh along with their puerile humour. (2004)

THE WAY OF THE GUN
Herald rating: * * *

Good crime film starring Ryan Phillipe and Benicio Del Toro as criminals who kidnap a pregnant woman (Juliette Lewis) who is acting as surrogate mother for a wealthy businessman. Suffers from a somewhat convoluted plot. (2000)
