This fun fantasy film meanders it's along nice and gently without making you laugh out loud
or jump or cry but it does make you smile. It's a pantomime on film. One member of the audience laughed out loud , but she was the only person in the cinema. It is a film for the open minded for the person who can see fun in lunacy. How ever ithe film will not be to everyone's taste one friend just didn't get it. Some people won't. It's deliberately amateurish effects will amuse some and bemuse others.
It is good but not as good as Wes Anderson's previous films, the life aquatic or the royal tenenbaums, Even though I enjoyed the film I know it could have been much better and was not better than what he has made to date.
Its a fun watch, but don't expect too much.
