Sweet, funny, well acted, heart-warming and well acted.
4 February 2020 | by david-161-28390See all my reviews

A great family movie with a good moral undertone - but never preaching. A nice theme of redemption, a couple of contenents and no shortage of laughts. Made me think about parenting skills - never a bad thing!
