My favourite childhood movie!
9 January 2006 | by (Sheffield) – See all my reviews

Of all of my childhood memories, watching this film is one of my favourites! Although now it may seem somewhat dated, I believe it to be a forgotten masterpiece. Anthony Squire did an excellent job directing this, and with stars such as Norman Bowler appearing in it, your enjoyment is almost guaranteed.

It also has some very memorable quotes, such as 'I hate mackerel pie', 'the Thames water is polluted' and 'they rowed them across in barges you know' as well as the classic 'Jack's going to be an Ornithologist!'. You really have to watch it to appreciate this to its full extent.

If you love children's classics, this film should suit you too.
