British rock legends Status Quo are on their 50th year anniversary world tour, having sold over 100 million records worldwide. They land in Fiji with manager Simon and are joined by Caroline, a local posh girl on a never ending gap year. She cannot believe how ancient they are and does not hide it even when Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt suggest enough of the age reminders. After their gig in Lautoka Stadium, where Caroline thinks they have already written a song for her, and Simon tells her it is from the seventies, Francis and Rick escape the press and head off for a drink in a dockland bar. Here they see a murder organised by gangster Wilson and when they are found to have recorded evidence on their phone they spend the movie running for their lives. Nine new hit songs and nine reworked classics in what is an action packed and very funny guilty pleasure.

Surfer Jay Moriarity sets out to ride the Northern California break known as Mavericks.

A romantic comedy centered on a Woody Allen-obsessed pharmacist and her would-be lover.
