Mad about movies: This week's new UAE film releases

Or should this be called Spider-Man’s European Vacation? Yes, much like a long-running sitcom always has a double-episode with the gang on holiday, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) heads out on a jolly to the EU only to have to don the famous suit and fight baddies over there. Funny, light-hearted and laid-back, we can’t pour scorn on any of this particular Spidey’s exploits, so go for it. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 90%

Who doesn’t love a decent body-swap comedy? Homegrown production Rashid & Rajab is directed by the creator of animated series Freej, Mohammed Saeed Harib. In it Rashid (Marwan Abdullah) is a successful Emirati businessperson who lives in Dubai with his wife, Latifa (Sheema), and daughter. Rajab (Shadi Alfons) is a carefree Egyptian delivery driver who also lives in the city with his wife, Hosniya (Doaa Ragab), and child. Rashid’s focus on his career leaves him with material wealth, but distance from his family. Rajab’s lack of motivation means the people he loves are the centre of his universe often at the expense of his job and its subsequent pay. After Rajab’s chance and somewhat mystical encounter with a fortuneteller, a road accident between himself and Rashid leads to the duo waking up having switched consciousnesses. IMDb gives it 7
