I almost didn’t go to see this. The trailer had looked amateurish and hadn’t impressed me at all.
Boy that would’ve been a mistake!
It is very simplistic, but I believe that to be by design. It feels as if it is a theatre production. The actors, who are all fantastic, play multiple parts, and it’s a lot of fun spotting them in different roles.
This is pure British comedy and has something for Adults and children. Although, I would say that children seven and upwards would enjoy it better than those of a younger age.
I giggled the entire way through. A British made production where they poked fun of themselves with several stereotypes.
The pacing was fantastic. There was never a lull in the film and it was just the right length for younger ones. It’s the perfect Sunday film for the family.
This film doesn’t try to be more than what it is, and that is a fun time with a fun, not to be taken seriously, plot.
To sum up, a wonderful cast of actors, funny plot, well made
Was it worth the watch? Yes, especially if you have younger members in your family and you’re looking for something you can all go and see.
Would I re-watch? Yes, definitely worth buying on DVD too.
