Antz (PG)

Computer-animated comedy voiced by a stellar cast stars Woody Allen as a worker ant who becomes an unlikely opponent of the colony's totalitarian regime. Good fun, and Allen's best work in a while.

Out of Sight (15)

This tale of love on opposite sides of the law knocks spots off every previous Elmore Leonard adaptation, and boasts in George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez (left) the swooniest romantic pairing of the whole cinematic year.

Slums of Beverly Hills (15)

Tamara Jenkins' feature debut is a modest but winning rites-of-passage movie about a family coping with poverty in Los Angeles's richest suburb. Alan Arkin gives an acting masterclass as the dad.
