I loved this
2 November 2002 | by (Sunny London) – See all my reviews

Nothing much that hasn't already been said, but this is a lovely film and made everyone who was watching it with me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's not often you get one of these movies on the circuit or even on tele... so when you do I seriously recommend watching them.

I loved the little intricacies of the film... such as the stuttering on the film at the beginning, which was carried through to the end of the film. The acting in it was a lot better than some of the other made for TV movies I have seen lately... but there are quite a few moments where a cat and a paper bag are involved, or some bad abilities to act out of it.

The gran is definitely the best character in this story. I loved her to pieces and thought she could have had a little more of a role in the basic plot.

The tree shaking scene was a bit daft though. I don't know about anyone else who watched this but, why didn't he just pull the key... or even better, take his feet off the gas?!?!?!

NO eye candy though. Not exactly what I would call a 'Qween' movie. A nice movie though.

6.5 flaps out of 10
