10 movies guaranteed to entertain you and the kids

The hustle is real with Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway and Sylvester Stallone comes up with another escape plan.

It’s a Spy Kids festival for your little ones while you get jam-packed action movies and comedies too!

The Hustle

Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect) and Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada) team up as a pair of con artists in the south of France in this gender-switch reboot of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Hathaway takes on Michael Caine’s role as a smooth Brit and Wilson channels Steve Martin’s rowdy American – although she sticks to her roots and is still very much an Australian. Initially rivals, the scheming pair eventually combine their considerable but very different talents – honey trapping and catfishing – to fleece wealthy men of their money. Hilarity ensues.

Escape Plan 2: Hades

It’s been years after Ray Breslin did the impossible – escape from an off-the-grid prison. After one of his team members go missing though, he must return to that same inescapable fortress to stage another prison break, with deadly consequences this time. With Dave Bautista, 50 Cent and Sylvester Stallone.

Destination Wedding

From the director who brought us romantic comedies like Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! and My Sassy Girl, comes this offbeat comedy about two mismatched miserable people who meet while on their way to a destination wedding. While criticising the bride, groom, reception and each other, the pair develop feelings that soon blossoms into a crazy but loving romance. Starring Keanu Reeves (The Matrix, John Wick) and Winona Ryder (Stranger Things, Beetlejuice).

The Festival

Getting dumped is never easy, let alone being told “it’s not you, it’s me” at an important occasion. When Nick is dumped by his girlfriend right after graduation, he’s dealt a massive blow to his ego. To cheer him up, Nick’s friends Shane and Amy drag him to a three-day music festival, but things go wrong almost immediately when Nick bumps into his ex-girlfriend. This zany comedy has a whopping 80 % rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Starring Joe Thomas, Hammed Animashaun and Claudia O’Doherty.
