An all round great film....
14 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film got really bad reviews in the TV pages I used but when I tuned in by accident I immediately found myself gripped. The plot is weak and the characters shallow and the comedy is absolutely pathetic but still I found myself watching it to the end. This film is a very good piece of entertainment for young and old alike. The two young actors are good and it is only a shame we haven't see Jessie-Ann Friend in more films since. Not only is this film gently gripping and lightly entertaining it is a beautiful story and an uplifting tale. I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who has a couple of hours to spare and just needs the relaxing involvement this film gives.
