Saturday 2 November

Sherlock Holmes, SABC3 7.30 pm

Robert Downey Jr is simply brilliant as the legendary detective, with Jude Law as his sidekick Dr Watson. Director Guy Ritchie came under criticism for his portrayal of Holmes as more of an action hero than the classic sleuth one would expect, but one thing is for sure – it’s an entertaining flick! The Ugly Truth, etv 8 pm If you’re not in the mood for action, here’s a nice romantic comedy instead. Katherine Hiegl stars as a romantically challenged TV producer who gets more than she bargained for when her boss hires a new presenter, played by the dishy Gerard Butler, to boost her show’s ratings.
