Funniest film I have watched in ages
I was hesitant to go to see this, since the critics panned it (by and large). But absolutely no regrets.
I have rarely seen a cinema full of people having so much fun. Great one liners, touching moments which still retain some authenticity despite a daft plot, and brilliant child actors.
The three leads - Billy Connolly, Rosamund Pike and David Tennant - all turn in notable performances, but its the three children who are the most remarkable.
There are also some nice positive life messages worked in, to take or leave as the viewer wishes.
Not to be missed.
