mailmusic: DVDS out tomorrow.

Byline: By MICKEY McMONAGLE

THE NUMBER 23(15)

Jim Carrey tries to play it straight as Walter Sparrow, a man obsessed with the number 23. He becomes more and more deranged - and Carrey's portrayal of the character is frankly rather funny. Shame it wasn't meant to be.

Rating: *****

MURDER SHE WROTE:

SEASON 5 (12)

Silly plots abound as obvious murderers are foiled by dizzy old Angela Lansbury. Rather than bump her off, they go quietly every time. It reminds us how lucky we are to have programmes such as Heroes.

Rating: *****

HAVEN (18)

Bill Paxton and Stephen Dillane flee to the Caymans to avoid being nicked for their dodgy dealings. But their situation sparks a chain of events which sees the islands change for ever. It's a twisty film that is worth sticking with.

Rating: *****

BREAKING AND ENTERING(18)

This Anthony Minghella effort will appeal to those who like thoughtprovoking film. Jude Law is Will, a successful architect struggling with a lifeless marriage and embarking on a risky affair with a Bosnian refugee.

Rating: *****

BARBARELLA (18)

The brilliant 60s romp in which Jane Fonda soars through the universe in outrageously sexy outfits. She takes on evil villain Duran Duran but of course the real focus of the film is how damn fine she looks. Not to be taken seriously.
