  3. A grandmother has an affair with a workman played by future James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
  4. A divorced mother has a passionate affair and her ex-husband sues for custody.
  5. A tough detective somehow finds his mother joining him in his investigation.
  6. A boy has to rescue his mother after she is abducted by aliens.
