Storyline

Angus the fluffy cat retains its dignity even in a crazy Eastbourne family, unlike them. Eldest daughter Georgia is completely besotted with 'Stiff Dylans' band hottie Robbie, who just moved in from London and helps run an organic groceries shop with his brother Tom, whom her best friend Jas has the hots for. Peter Dyer calls Georgia his best ever kissing-course pupil, but she ignores him and later the brothers' other classmate Dave the Laugh. Robbie was considering to dump haughty Lindsay, but reconsiders given the immature brat's apparent cruelty. Thus manipulative Georgia keeps changing her mind about a grand birthday party and her father's career opportunities as engineer in New Zealand, while mother seems to flirt with hunky interior decorator Jem.

It's a kid's movie but NOT A KID'S MOVIE
17 April 2015 | by melissa-hanungSee all my reviews

Probably I have to start by saying that I'm a 31 year old wife from Indonesia, that's in south east Asia if you don't know, so I was pretty much being brought up by Eastern tradition. And hence when I saw that this movie was presented by Nickelodeon, I thought it was the same Nick that produced the Avatar, which is awesome kids cartoon. And I had a good laugh watching the opening scene, which is pretty comical. The parents kissing was uncomfortable, but okay - I think it's a cute teens movie... though I start to get my suspicion when they started to stalk a character and seeing the character taking off their clothes.

But I thought, all right, it's a British movie - I don't know anything about British little girls but maybe that's how they are and that it's acceptable. UNTIL that snogging session with the "kissing instructor" happened!! That was gross!! And then the "thong" thing on the changing room happened. And then all the innuendo happened. And then I realized that this is NOT as much a kid's movie as it's a weird, awkward, bizarre movie with child actors (hello, the Indian girl can't be older than 13).

Yes, it's up to "step 6" so probably the maker thought it was 'okay' - I mean, no groping, right? Of course! They are British people with British culture, what am I doing comparing the movie to the norm around here? So of course, I'm biased. But still the movie is weird. Like it's an HBO movie that tries hard to be sexual but still PG-13. I can't say I hate the movie because it has a nice plot and a happy ending, I just hate how children are being pictured in the movie.
