CHARLIE Lang finds he is short of cash and can't leave a tip for a waitress in a coffee shop. Instead, he promises to share with her his winnings if he is lucky in a lottery. And he does win - $4 million.


His wife insists he should keep all the money, but Charlie must keep his promise. The delightful comedy It Could Happen To You stars Nicholas Cage and Bridget Fonda.


A deadly virus that was safely hidden in the depths of an African rainforest for years suddenly begins spreading through civilisation.


Dustin Hoffman plays Dr Sam Daniels in the thriller Outbreak. He has to race against time to stop the virus from spreading. So far it is only threatening parts of America, but could easily turn into a global monster.


Dr Daniels must also outwit his government superiors who have a sinister plan.


Stand back - it's martial arts time and the kicks are flying.


David Sloan is trying to save his wife's life, and his enemy is the evil Tong Po.


Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor stars Jean Claude Van Damme, Kamel Krifa and Sasha Mitchell.


In Nobody's Fool, Paul Newman plays a charming small-town scamp drifting aimlessly through life and enjoying every bit of it.


Newman is Sully, a 60-year-old handyman who is boarding with his ageing eight grade schoolteacher (Jessica Tandy) who regards Sully as a surrogate son. A good Oscar-nominated performance by Newman.
