One of the funniest films in 2008
25 November 2008 | by joshistirgendwieschwulSee all my reviews

Coronation Street: Out of Africa is one of the FUNNIEST MOVIES i have seen in 2008, set in a by sun overwhelmed seaside resort of Sun City, South Africa. Cilla Battersby ("the mother from hell"), brought her son and other "son" over to Africa to win a competition for $500,000.

My favorite actor is the 14yo Sam Aston Sam who played Chesney Battersby-Brown. But all characters are thrilling! This movie is a 'must' for anyone who loves British humor. The locations are dazzling (there is even a flashback of a Las Vegas casino!) and best chosen - with snakes, lions and croco's cameos -, the music score is like a topped cream layer on all of this.

With an extreme entertaining and hilarious plot I'm sure anyone will keep laughing from the beginning up to the end; Coronation Street really shows what it still has left to give the nation, and why it is still No.1 after 48 long years! Coronation Street: Out of Africa is for all ages; the ideal movie for watching with the whole family.
