Visually haunting and plenty of laughs
17 April 2012 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Will it change my life? No. Did half the cinema laugh out loud on several occasions? Yes Did I look at my watch during the film? Not once Will I remember it? Definitely the visuals, maybe not the plot Will I recommend others to see it? I already have Did anything annoy me (even the way feet were drawn)? No Did I come out smiling? Definitely Were the characters well-drawn? Cat yes, little girl yes, gangstas rudimentary (but fun) mum, a bit of a cliché but who cares Plot? Serious novelists don't need to feel threatened but it hung together nicely within its own parameters. So... a rather sweet film, funny, uplifting, eye candy, feelgood. For serious film buffs? Depends how seriously they take themselves. I defy anybody not to enjoy this movie. Oh, and I hope someone repairs Notre Dame.
