Who’s in it?Hugh Grant, Kristan Scott-Thomas, Andie MacDowell, Simon Callow, Rowan Atkinson. Directed by Mike Newell.
What’s it about?This rather shy Londoner, Charles (Hugh Grant) meets American Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at a friend's wedding, and enjoys a one-night stand with her.
The next time they meet, again at a wedding, Carrie is accompanied by a rich fiancé, leaving Charles heartbroken. Never mind, with another wedding on the horizon, there is still time for him to pitch his woo and win the love of his transatlantic sweetheart.

Gaz Robert Carlyle) and Dave (Mark Addy) are two former steelworkers in Sheffield who have been devastated by the economic downturn. Taking their “inspiration” from the American male exotic dance troupe, the Chippendales, they form their own group of male strippers, Hard Steel.
While Hard Steel's performances are more amusing then enticing, for the first time since they lost their jobs the men have a reason to get up in the morning. Joining the group has given them a circle of friendship, and a renewed sense of purpose. Combines broad comedy with believable and well-drawn characters.
