Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A delightful film. Our audience laughed all the way through but there were poignant moments too. Some people had a little difficulty understanding the dialogue but once they "tuned in" it was fine. Highly recommended for Flicks.

Wonderful scenery. Amusing dialogue.

What a fun film! The official trailer does it no justice at all. Don't believe anyone expected the "defiant kid vs. grumpy old geezer" storyline to be quite so emotional, charming and in places, hilarious! Look out for Psycho Sam!
