Alan Carr hosts a fun-packed show that puts comedians and actors' film trivia to the test.

Regular rounds include the one where Alan and Micky or Michael (or from series 2, Jennifer) re-create a famous scene from a movie, exploring how the scenes work with a drama coach. In the studio, the invited guests improvise a scene based on other famous clips. There are questions based on, yes, more famous film clips, and the guests discuss their own life in movies.

There's Something About Movies was loosely based on A League of Their Own from the same production company. It's a very similar style, it treats the art form with equal amounts of love and cheeky disrespect.

And with a bright and colourful studio.

While there's barely a game in the show, There's Something About Movies is certainly worth a watch. It's an entertainment show, doing unfamiliar things with familiar clips. Micky Flanagan is in his element, Michael Sheen adds some necessary gravitas.
