full of heart
4 November 2014 | by k-lynch-754-706333See all my reviews

Moone boy's charm is in its heart and it's firmly in the right place. At its core, it's a coming of age comedy/drama about a boy and his imaginary friend. There are so many poignant moments that it may be deserving of a second viewing. If you were a kid growing up in the late 80's and early 90's you're more likely to get the humour but there's humour aplenty for everyone. I was never a fan of Chris O' Dowd (I thought his humour bland) but it works here and in the right places. The first series is the better as it dips in the second, hence the nine out of ten rating, still Moone Boy hits much more than it misses and I recommend it highly.
