Fully enjoyed this film. Took the whole family out to see this at the cinema a couple of months ago and enjoyed by my kids and my mum who is 70 - can't remember the last time that happened! Very funny little story, well performed and took me back to my childhood of being on holiday at my grandparents up in Scotland and the many characters of their village. Definitely worth a watch if you like slightly 'harmless' comedies (in that the whole family can watch it), with a simple story that anyone can follow. Only thing I would say is that I haven't seen the original so can't measure that like others might, but either way a good watch.
