Killers (12A)

A profoundly silly and boring non-com in which domesticity collides with professional death-dealing, a la Grosse Point Blank.

DVD: Spread (18)

"I don't want to be arrogant, but I'm incredibly attractive," Ashton Kutcher's preening lothario, Nikki, assures us at the start of David Mackenzie's smutty morality tale. Nikki, jobless and feckless, targets LA's wealthiest single women, sleeps with them, lets them buy him expensive clobber (mainly, it seems, appalling scarves and, more horrifyingly, braces) and then lounges around their swimming pool. Anne Heche's glacial lawyer is his latest "victim". This flimsy look at shallowness and avarice in LA was captured much better in American Gigolo, and reminds you just how good a young Richard Gere was in these narcissistic roles.

Did You Hear About the Morgans? Marc Lawrence, 105 mins, (PG)<br/>Spread, David Mackenzie, 96 mins, (18)<br/>Post Grad, Vicky Jenson, 90 mins, (12A)<br/>It Might Get Loud, David Guggenheim, 98 mins, (PG)

Hit & Run: No way to tweet a lady

But the generation gap brings with it some special pitfalls, too, as his first wife Demi Moore discovered on Saturday at Willis's wedding.

Editor-At-Large: The BBC is the biggest joke of all. Bring back Brand

The BBC is taking a firmer line on taste and decency, according to the trustees. If so, it can kiss goodbye to retaining its audience, because, whether the middle-class gentry likes it or not, everyday life in Britain is pretty vulgar – just as it always was. We're the nation of bawdy hits such as Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Fielding's Tom Jones, Joe Orton's farces, Shakespeare's smutty romps. We haven't got more foul-mouthed or crude: we always have been. From Max Wall to Bernard Manning to Harry Enfield – British humour at its best is filthy and tasteless.

How did a crass comedy about two stoners inspire an essential careers guide?

Have you ever seen a film called Dude, Where's my Car?. It tells the story of two lazy pot-heads who wake up one morning after a heavy party and can't recall the whereabouts of their vehicle. It's much the same story for many graduates who, after one long bop at university, wake up one morning to find they've graduated and haven't given much of a thought to their future.

Hague calls for tough Iran sanctions
