What a great escape this film was from day to day pressures. It was "laugh out loud" funny in parts and yet ridiculous in others. Don't expect a blockbuster movie,just relax and enjoy.

Billy Connolly is excellent! Very good movie with great scenery and a twist in the storyline. David Tennant is poor but that doesn't take anything away from the enjoyment. A must see movie!!!

A funny film, the kids acting is fantastic (very much like outnumbered). Love Billy to pieces, but something was missing and to me he acted a little "staged" and not natural. The cctv part of the film had me in stitches!! Worth watching :)
