Film Mark Kermode reviews Madonna's W.E. in that kind of anti-intuitive way which still forces you to want to see the film:

This a film so rubbish, it makes Simon Mayo bust out of his usual apparent disinterest and join the discussion to point out the indigenousness of some of the script. Not in the video is the moment elsewhere in that programme when Simon admitted that it was a rare occasion when he tactfully failed to indicate when interviewing the person involved whether he liked the film or not.

Elizabeth Day also interviewed Andrea Riseborough the other week and I'm still not sure if she wasn't deliberately riffing on the classic Harmony Cousins spoof (which is nearly ten years old now and still a cautionary tale).  The "If she were a Chinese dish, what would she be?" moment nearly made the tea fall through my nose.
