Let It Shine

6pm, Disney

In this teen update of Cyrano de Bergerac, our young hero Cyrus DeBarge is told by his religious father that "rap is the devil's music" when he freestyles in church. So he enters a songwriting competition to win the love of pop star Roxie. No real cause and effect. Then a mix-up happens with the song being attributed to his friend and the friend doesn't deny it. So you can imagine how that affects their otherwise perfectly nice friendship. They've only got until the end of the movie to make up, win the girl And the contest, and climax in a horrific, Auto-Tuned finale of toothy doom. Bleee. Julia Raeside
