Aussie Icon Paul Hogan just wants the quiet life. He lives in Brentwood, California, happy in retirement, content doing the daily crossword and enjoying regular calls from Lucy, his delightful 10-year-old granddaughter in Sydney. So, when his agent drops by to tell him he'll be receiving a knighthood for services to comedy, he is less than impressed by this imposition and much to his agents' chagrin, turns down the offer. Paul attempts to return to his tranquil life but Lucy calls; she has excitedly told kids at her new school that granddad has been offered a Knighthood. They laughed at her. What? Paul realises he needs to get the Knighthood to help her salvage her reputation. After much begging and pleading, his agent reluctantly agrees to call the Palace. The Knighthood is back on. The next six weeks, however, see Hogan's brand totally trashed. Although he is always trying to do the right thing and salvage his quickly diminishing reputation, life is conspiring against him. He's accused of racism when he questions the reality of Will Smith playing his son in Dundee 4. He gets caught brawling with an ill-mannered Dundee impersonator on Hollywood Boulevard. He has to step in for no-show John Travolta at a charity "Grease" duet with Olivia Newton John, which enrages the die-hard "Grease" fans. He finds himself in a car with the world's most unexpected Uber Driver and running from the law, and that's just the beginning. The media are having a field day as the headlines write themselves. With his granddaughter lost for words at his antics and Paul now a regular punchline on talk shows, he has some big decisions to make. Can he please everyone or does family always come first? Paul's simple life has become hell for him - but great fun for us.
Comedian, writer and politically incorrect HBO talk-show host Bill Maher takes time off from his regular hosting duties to perform a hilariously scathing stand-up set in his eighth HBO stand-up special.

Bush.
Stan Smith, who works for the C.I.A. and is constantly on the alert for terrorist activity, will go to extremes to protect his beloved America from harm; as evidenced by the terror-alert color code on his fridge, and his frequent knee-jerk reaction of shooting holes in the toaster whenever the toast pops up. In addition to Stan's wife and teenage children, the Smith household has two rather unconventional members. There's Roger, the sarcastic space alien who rescued Stan from Area 51, who deeply resents the fact that he's not allowed to leave the house, and therefore, has been reduced to drinking wine and smoking cigarettes, and Klaus, a lascivious, German-speaking goldfish; the result of a C.I.A. experiment gone seriously wrong, where the C.I.A. tried to give a fish a German man's brain. Stan's son is a dorky teenager who tries to be cool. His wife has had a past life of sex and drugs.
