Monday 27 December 1999
Director: Les Mayfield
Starring: Martin Lawrence, Luke Wilson
A strutting action-comedy in the Simpson-Bruckheimer vein, Blue Streak turns an indulgent camera on Lawrence's wisecracking jewel- thief. A film with nothing new to say, and a noisy way of saying it.
West End: Odeon Camden Town, Odeon Kensington, Odeon Marble Arch, Odeon Swiss Cottage, Ritzy Cinema, UCI Whiteleys, Virgin Chelsea, Virgin Trocadero, Warner West End And local cinemas
DOGMA (15, 125 mins)
Director: Kevin Smith
Starring: Matt Damon, Ben Affleck
Dogma tackles a sprawling canvas of life, the universe and everything. A slipshod, rollicking, yet sporadically charming comedy.

MUPPETS FROM SPACE (U, 88 mins)

In which the crooked-beaked Gonzo discovers that he is an alien from outer-space and his Fuzzy Felt cohorts jiggle in time to various musical interludes.

MYSTERY MEN (PG, 122 mins)
Director: Kinka Usher
Starring: Ben Stiller, William H Macy
When the preening superhero Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) is foiled by his arch nemesis (Geoffrey Rush), the Mystery Men - a raggle-taggle troupe of Walter Mitty types - seize their shot at glory. Usher's comic- book spoof ambles merrily on its way, buoyed by bold, primary-coloured design and genial playing.
West End: Empire Leicester Square, Virgin Trocadero And local cinemas
