A really great film
11 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

We watched this on DVD today (too hot to go out) and the whole family loved it!

It's not often you see a film that really stays with you but we were all talking about it right through dinner and my brother and his friends have already started quoting their favourite lines - a sure fire indicator of a cult hit if ever there was one!

Everyone loved Stephen Mangan and Rhys Thomas who are just the most wonderful friends in it (bickering their way across the ice was just hilarious and a bit like a dysfunctional marriage!) but personally my favourites were Rosie Cavaliero (not an actress I'd seen before) and Lars Arentz Hansen. These two were so truthful and funny I just loved watching them every time they came on screen. Real stars in the making (if they're not already - I don't know!!)

Also I have to say that the DVD extras just are lovely. The actors are so, so funny and the story of the making of it just so great. Thankyou!
