0.5 out of 10 Ah Just Shush
martha from Waterford, 17 Dec 2009
The plot was bizarre, almost farcical. The whole story was bogged down by clichés and impossibilities. The most natural display of acting ability comes from a child. Overall, so unbelievable, I think my tears at the end were of disbelief and exasperation. I swear the thing must've been written and directed by children, or idiots.

4.5 out of 10 Feel Good Movie
Seamus from Monaghan, 10 Jan 2011
This is a real 'feel good' movie. The acting is brilliant even from Robbie Williams who normally overacts. The story is a little bit 'twee' but it's still a great story with some great acting. And the music is terrific.

1.5 out of 10 A bit over the top
Christopher from Donegal, 26 Aug 2010
I can only suspend belief so far before a movie then becomes ludicrous. This one went too far. Don't waste your time! Too, bad because it did have some potential.
