Enjoyable family viewing
4 October 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This movie was very much a feel good family movie. I took my 9 year old along because my wife had read about it and thought our son might enjoy it. He did not want to go and was grumpy all the way. But he loved the movie and chatted about it all the way home. Well made old style family movie like Disney used to make before they went off track (not counting the PIXAR stuff which are great). Well cast kid actors who were very believable and it was great to see Vince Martin on the big screen again. Another solid performance from Tandi Wright as the mother and I enjoyed Dai Henwood's quirky performance as the kid's teacher. Well directed with some nice views of Nelson. The story line was reasonably predictable but that did not detract from the overall enjoyment.
