I remember seeing this film when i was off sick from school and couldn't believe how much I enjoyed it!

It was a classic example of British comedy for family entertainment, with a good story and strong acting. I'm scared that if I watched it again, I wouldn't like it, so I'll leave the fond memories in the past.
