a heartwarming film
12 April 2004 | by (kirkstall,leeds) – See all my reviews

a lovely film to watch,made me laugh,cry,you just have to watch it,so many moments of joy,like when james picks up a typical university waller at the railway station and he explains about medicane in the car,and later when the car runs out of controll into the stream when the handbrake is not applied,also at the summer fair everything goes wrong for james,also when he has a glass of wine too much and tries in vain to work on a cow,and does the job so funny,why this film is not on dvd i just do not know as it is such a good film to watch any time,also it is near the end of peace as we know it,so when the public house has extended hours to the disapproval of the new local copper,they say in the pub it's hitler,but at the end of the film,peace is at an end as the famous war speach is read on the radio
