A Life Less Ordinary Pearl, 9.35pm If you're expecting the sequel to Trainspotting, you'll probably be disappointed with A Life Less Ordinary, the follow-up from director Danny Boyle and writer John Hodge. It's no use comparing the two films because A Life Less Ordinary is hardly serious, thought-provoking or artistic film-making. Instead, it's just an oddball mix of weird love and weird humour, something that turned off many people when it was released in the United States. The unusual tale is basically about divine intervention in romance. Robert Lewis (Ewan McGregor) is an aspiring novelist who is sacked from his cleaning job after being replaced by a robot. He kidnaps Celine Naville (Cameron Diaz, above), his employer's bored daughter, but soon realises he's in over his head when her father (Ian Holm) decides she's not really worth the ransom. Throw in two angels, O'Reilly (Holly Hunter) and Jackson (Delroy Lindo), who are assigned by Gabriel (Dan Hedaya) to make the couple fall in love, and the result is a love story with a twist. Although the somewhat predictable plot is disjointed and not well developed, the film does have a couple of standout moments, including a karaoke dance sequence and a scene where Hunter crawls over the bonnet of a speeding truck. (1997) The Simpsons World, 8pm Mr Burns wonders what his fortune is worth if no one in the world likes him. At the power plant, Homer offers him a few pointers but every attempt at changing the public's attitude towards him ends in failure. In a last-ditch effort, Mr Burns decides to pull off his own flamboyant stunt by forming an expedition to locate the Loch Ness monster and bring it back to Springfield. Asian Charlie's Angels AXN, 10pm This is not exactly riveting stuff so don't hold your breath. Just enjoy it for all the same reasons you enjoy the original kitsch series with Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson and Farrah Fawcett: cheap thrills and brainless entertainment. This time, the trio of high-kicking femme fatales are Ye Qing, Lee Min and Angie Huang (Annie Wu Chen-chun, Kelly Lin Hsi-lei and Christy Chung, above from left). Their mission is to capture a serial killer who is stalking rich and beautiful women throughout Southeast Asia. Using beauty and brains rather than brawn, they are assisted in their crime-fighting efforts by the mysterious Boss, a private investigator and veteran detective. As expected, this tame copycat version does not offer much in the way of character or plot development. But then, Asian Charlie's Angels was never meant to be anything more than just a silly excuse for the three sexy sleuths to dress up and play dirty.
