Great movie
17 July 2018 | by lwio1960See all my reviews

I've just seen this and agree with the other reviews that this is a great family movie. No need for flashy cgi just a good story and great acting. They do lay it on thick but this is what this story deserves. Nice comedy moments make this a great hour and a half's viewing. If you have a chance catch this movie you'll not be disappointed.
