Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

The film went down well but I think numbers were short because film goers had thought that the film would not appeal to them. The film was better than expected.

Very good: well-made etc. and really entertaining. A real feel-good film.

An excellent film with a really good "feel good factor" Enjoyed by all who came, especially those of a certain age who remembered the original story when Eddie became a national hero.
