Very Entertaining Family Movie
18 July 2015 | by sarah-alabdullahSee all my reviews

A tale about a troubled parents (who are getting separated) and their three kids. The family travels to Scotland to celebrate the very ill grandfather's birthday. Before going there, the parents agreed with their kids to keep their separation secret from the grandfather, because they don't want to ruin his birthday party with such news. Then so many unexpected things happen at the celebration day.

The performance was amazing especially the three kids, and the smart script makes you laugh at so many times despite the tragic story.

The movie shows beautiful visuals of green Scotland, and the Scottish music was great.

It is recommended for you if you wanted to watch something light and funny.
