Double bill of comedy movies. 'Fargo' (1996) is an offbeat, grisly black comedy from the Coen brothers. Minnesota car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), deeply in debt, arranges for the kidnapping of his wife in order to obtain a sizeable ransom from her father, to pay off both his henchmen and his debts. However, all does not go according to plan. In 'Sex, Lies and Videotape' (1989) Ann (Andie MacDowell) is unaware that her successful lawyer husband (Peter Gallagher) is having an affair with her less inhibited, and virtually estranged, sister (Laura San Giacomo). This only comes to light when her husband's old college mate Graham (James Spader) comes to stay. Shy and impotent, he gets his kicks from making videos of women talking about their sex lives.
