Hatfield horrors
28 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I agree with another of the reviewers who says that anyone who slams this film has missed the point. Apart from the glorious performances from not only Kathy Burke and Lee Evans, the supporting cast are equally as fine. From the horrendous mum-in-law to the two kids, and also the 'childrens' entertainer, Ray Winstone, (Who, in my humble opinion is one of the finest British actors at the present time), all performances gel into a believable if slightly over the top comedy drama. Just take a second look at the scene where the 14 year old daughter is giving birth, how can anyone fault these intensely moving performances in the midst of a completely ridiculous, wonderful, bizarre situation. If I could give it 100 out of 10, I would. This is real life, whether you like it or not. Clive C.
