Undercover cops Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) swap high school for college in order to thwart another drugs ring.

  • Cast: Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron

Kelly (Byrne) and Mac (Rogen) are adjusting to life with a baby when a college fraternity moves in next door, led by buff, glassy-eyed Teddy (Efron). Although it lacks a satisfying structure, the gags come thick and fast, Rogen and Byrne are an appealing couple and for all the big laughs there's a surprising sweetness.

Hercules

Hercules
  • 3 stars

  • Directed by: Brett Ratner
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane

Hercules (Johnson) is used to relying on mercenaries, trickery and suggestion to enhance his reputation, but when's called to defend Thrace from a warlord and his supernatural army, he's put to a proper test. Ratner keeps things light, with knowing humour papering over the lack of emotional depth. Daft but watchable.

  • Directed by: Phil Lord/Christopher Miller
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders

Emmett (Pratt), a regular Lego construction worker, finds himself acclaimed as the 'Special', who will save the Lego universe from evil Lord Business. Fast, funny, blisteringly paced and hugely inventive, it's also so layered with ironic detachment that the attempt at a sincere final act falls flat; still, good fun for adults and kids.

  • 2014
  • US/France
  • 103 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James DeMonaco
  • Cast: Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford

Engagingly blunt sequel to 2013's low-budget home invasion sensation The Purge: here, LA cop Sergeant (Grillo) finds himself defending four innocent people from the annual night of state-sanctioned, city-wide lawlessness. With striking performances from Grillo and Ejogo, it's patchy but proficient, and an intelligent expansion of the franchise.

Blu (Eisenberg) and Jewel (Hathaway) travel to the Amazon to discover Jewel's family, but old adversary Nigel (Clement) is keen on revenge. Amiable sequel to the macaw-themed 2010 original; despite dubious racial stereotyping in the supporting cast, there's enough colour and incident to make for passable family entertainment.
