Hi there Insiders!

This fortnight has all been about one simple word for us - yes. Have we got some great movies for you? Yes. Has your local Network store got more entertainment choices than you could poke a hundred-ended stick at? Yes. Would we like a slice of cake? Yes, yes, yes! It's because Yes Man is about to hit our shelves, and it marks a return to wacky comedy form for Jim Carrey. Old rubber-face plays an average schmuck whose life is going nowhere until he learns to stop saying no, and start saying... well, you know. Suddenly he gets a better job; he reconnects with his neglected friends; and he hooks up with the always cute Zooey Deschanel. If you're a fan of vintage Carrey, you need to say yes to Yes Man.

A movie that the Oscar voters said yes to repeatedly is Slumdog Millionaire, which came out of nowhere to become one of the biggest hits of the year. This tale of a kid from the slums of Mumbai having a shot on the biggest quiz show in India, and how he got there, has deservedly entranced audiences across the globe. And if you saw the Oscars this year, you would have heard the name Slumdog Millionaire announced no less than eight times, so you know this film has got quality written all over it. Plus it's directed by one of our favourites, Danny (Trainspotting) Boyle. Even if all you know about Slumdog Millionaire is that Pussycat Dolls song, take a watch as it's one of the most uplifting films you'll ever see.

And now for something completely different: talking dogs. This fortnight also sees Beverly Hills Chihuahua hit our shelves, and this is great family fun. When the pampered Chihuahua Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) gets lost in Mexico, she has to rely on her limited street smarts and trust other dogs if she's going to make it over the border back to California. Sure this won't tax anyone's brain, but viewers young and old are going to love these crazy canines.

But hey, if you can't say yes to any of these, take a trip over to your local Network store anyway as we've got something on our shelves that you're going love.



We'll see you in-store.
