Pleasant family drama
6 August 2002 | by calvertfanSee all my reviews

We were first introduced to the Huggett family in the wonderful movie Holiday Camp, and now, with a little recasting, they're back. This installment is pretty fair as movies go, but still quite interesting. Some lovely singing from Petula Clark, some hilarious moments from Kathleen Harrison when the family gets a telephone, but the standout performance is from Diana Dors (before she was bleached) as the Huggetts "little" cousin Diana - who certainly has grown up a LOT since she last visited! A nice sign of the times, including a trip out to see the royal wedding.
