Storyline

Geraldine and her two daughters, Livvie and Angeline, are living rough on the streets on London. When their van blows up, they must find an alternative place to stay. At first, they live in temporary housing, but the conditions are unbearable. Geraldine reacts quickly and the family decides to take up residence in Scottley's, the best department store in London. They must keep it a secret from doorman Brian (whom the girls call Mr. Whiskers), and a couple of bumbling thieves who want to rob the store safe of its jewels.

Great Movie!
25 December 1999 | by dutrihackSee all my reviews

This is a great movie because....

1. It is a real life situation for some unlucky people, which helps the cope.

2. It includes comedy, celebrity appearances, etc., which everyone likes to see in a TV movie. (Included were "S CLUB 7")

and lastly:

3. It is family oriented and shows that no matter how much a person screws up in life that they will always be loved. (Example is how the mother (I forget her name) is always trying but never succeeds and eventually her oldest daughter (I believe her name was Livie) "comes to" and realized how much her mother is trying.)

That is basically my review.
