A rather unusual British comedy, the plot involves some killings happening in the woods and a scoutmaster, who goes ahead with his boys anyway, and it is sort of an intriguing plot line, but considering that it is a comedy, there are few good laughs. A number of the jokes are too obvious, as one can tell from long before that they are going to happen, however there are some amusing moments nonetheless. It is far from a great film: rather ordinary in many aspects - but it is far from being a poor film either. If nothing else, the film is not a minute too long, however there are likely to be other aspects that one can enjoy in this run-of-the-mill, but pleasant to watch, comedy.
