Fantastic fun
3 December 2002 | by filmmadSee all my reviews

I attended the Northern Ireland premiere of this film at the Foyle Film Festival and I can honestly say the crowd of Filmmakers, Actors, sponsors and general public all enjoyed this inoffensive road movie.

The gags were simple and the story easy to follow yet it still left a warm glow in everyones thoughts.

Lets hope it gets a world wide release so all can enjoy its message of hope and self-discovery.
