Perfect for chocoholics
2 January 2004 | by (Durham, UK) – See all my reviews

Having only seen a small amount of this when it was first shown I decided to give the repeat a go and sat and watched it in one solid 3 ½ hour session. I have to say that it was a really nice family movie. Despite having a serious message it works as simply a wholesome story of two boys attempt to fight the system. There may be a few plot holes as to why exactly chocolate was banned, and the rather annoying question of where it is supposed to be set (I'm guessing England, based on the fact it was English money although why they didn't just set it in Australia I'm not sure), but these are overcome by the acting and the warm feeling the film creates. Special note I think has to go to Anthony Hammer, (the only one of the Hancock family in Neighbours who could actually act) who should have been given a much better role in Neighbours, this at least demonstrates how underused he was. I challenge anyone to watch this film (especially the credits) without wanting to eat chocolate. Overall well worth a look especially on a cold winter afternoon.
