There are many out there who have no sense of fun anymore and have hammered this film.
The truth is it's not an Oscar winner but it's fun. We sat in a packed cinema screen of all ages who laughed their way through with a few tears in places and afterwards left feeling good.
That's what this film does and all those who have seen it I know say the same - yes it's silly and childish - but it's meant to be!
Ignore the so called film experts - we can all call ourselves that and justify it in some way - and just enjoy it for what it is, a simple film which doesn't take itself seriously with a great message running through it.
