Magical movies to watch this week

Who needs the beach when you have these refreshing new movies to watch!

It’s all about unusual friendships this week in DStv’s must-see movies of the week.

There’s tons of family fun with My Spy. When a CIA operative finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old as part of his cover to protect her family, their initial animosity turns into friendship.

Killer Cheerleader is a satirical film about the dark side of pep rallies. It’s about the hidden lives of high school cliques, and their seedy underbelly full of lies, secrets, blackmail, and deadly consequences.

Breaking the glass ceiling as never so funny in Late Night. Katherine Newbury is a successful late-night talk show host - and the only woman. In an attempt to garner an even bigger audience she hires an Indian American woman as her writer. The results are disastrous.

My Spy

When CIA field agent Mitch Bilsky (Dave Bautista) becomes a part of the family being surveilled, he finds that his efforts to stay professional are less than easy when Mitch learns that his assignment involves a nine-year old girl named Olivia (Chloë Coleman), and her precocious younger brother Max (Percy Hynes White).

Killer Cheerleader

As a new student in town, Alexis is eager to try out for her high school’s cheerleading team. While she certainly has the spirit and enthusiasm, Alexis unfortunately isn’t very good at cheering. Her first time performing causes her to humiliate the most popular girl in school, putting her on thin ice with those who are already against her, including head cheerleader Christy. With this situation brewing, it seems like Alexis is destined to become one of the school’s many casualties.

Late Night

Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is an acclaimed late-night talk show host with an extensive career in comedy, but her show's ratings have seen a steady decline over the past decade. The network's president, Caroline Morton (Hillary Swank), tells Katherine to fix up her show or she will be replaced. In an attempt to revamp the show, Katherine has Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling) hired to her writing staff, mainly on the basis that she is an Indian-American woman while all remaining writers are white men.
