Weekend Movies

There are some great films to choose from this weekend, and there really is something for everyone.

Into the Woods, RTÉ One @ 6.35pm on Saturday

Take the director of Chicago, an all-star cast, a Broadway hit musical and a whole heap of fairytales and you've got Into the Woods in a nutshell. Featuring an all-star cast which boasts Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, James Corden and more, there is singing, dancing and a whole lot of fairytale magic. While there is a smattering of joy, it also shows the darker side of the fairytale world, and most uniquely, a little bit of what happens after that Happy Ever After.

Two Weeks' Notice, ITV2 @ 3.40pm on Sunday

What more could you want on a Sunday afternoon than a rom-com classic with two of the genre's greats; Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock. In this film, Bullock's environmental lawyer Lucy begins working for Grant's billionaire George as part of a deal to preserve a community centre, and of course there's only one way the film goes. Predictable? Yes. Fun? Also yes.
