A Real Comedy
28 June 2009 | by pwarren1972See all my reviews

I am the real Lesley Coppins son, and while I never got to see this program as I live in the USA I can tell you that living through these events as they happened was comedy. The first call I received from my father (I lived in Portugal at the time) was actually filled with laughter as it seemed something that you would see in a Carry-on film. I have to say though that the poor treatment was in my mothers own words, "The best diet" she ever went on. Joking aside, while this film is a comedy drama I really would hope no one else ever goes plane spotting in Greece... There was real concern from everyone involved and fears that some may not make it back. Let alone the money that this cost most of these unfortunate people.
