Furry Vengeance (PG)

Brendan Fraser, once a promising talent, has somehow crash landed in the comedy graveyard known as Family Entertainment.

He plays a property developer who, belying his company's green credentials, is about to bulldoze a forest and erect a suburban estate in its place. But he reckons without a saboteur raccoon and a troop of wildlife friends (crows, skunks, etc) that will contrive to make his life a misery. Most of the slapstick assaults on Fraser end with him crashing his SUV and/or eliciting a look of disbelieving horror from his wife ( Brooke Shields). Naturally, it's all delivered with a choking dose of eco-self-righteousness, very slightly eased by the presence of Ken Jeong as the property company's unscrupulous and possibly insane CEO.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
