My thought process when I saw this movie while browsing: Hey look, a silly-looking comedy starring Martin Freeman. (Add to Queue)
A good plot that’s fairly linear, and doesn’t get distracted much. Everything manages to make sense, eve if it’s a bit silly.
Actually has some fairly good child actors, most of whom are very unique. They manage to drive Freeman crazy in a great way.
Really great looking school and town sets. However, the off-location sets, such as the airport, seemed a bit fake.
A wonderful soundtrack, and well-recorded too.
Wasn’t quite as completely charming and great as I had hoped, but I still don’t regret watching it.
Definitely a good family watch for the holidays.
