Good grief, what was Jeremy Irons thinking?
3 February 2019 | by sinimannerstuffSee all my reviews

What on earth was Jeremy Irons thinking!? Very lowest-common-denominator stuff here for those with scant understanding of humour. Grumpy gleefully obnoxious father and uptight son are forced on a road trip...you can see the formulaic story arc from the start. Sky Movies gives it 4.5 out of 5 stars - not a very discerning customer base I'm learning. A half hour down and an hour to go. Give it a miss folks.
