When Goode and Patton are having a glass of wine in the living room, Goode's hold on his wine glass changes from cradling the bottom to grasping the top every time the camera angle changes between actors. See more »
An additional scene appears during the credits with Ros, now an author, at the signing of her book. See more »
This movie is a flat adaptation wasting a great opportunity that the underlying story could have provided. It is presented without any real magic, chemistry between the characters or any sense of tension. What should be a warm, humorous family movie just comes across as cold, unfunny and cliched. Michael Caine's voice work is a highlight but his appearances are too brief. Russell Brand in contrast appears completely miscast in his role. Maybe young kids will love it, but in my eyes it doesn't have enough depth to work as film to be enjoyed by all the family.
