The Review: From the creators of TV’s Outnumbered, this is essentially Outnumbered on the big screen. It’s an excellent cast and there’s a sprinkling of funny moments throughout, but it often creeps too close to sentimentality.
Billy Connolly is genuinely touching in the role of a granddad close to death while David Tennant and Rosamund Pike, both excellent actors, are not given any material to stretch them.
I found the children in Outnumbered charmingly funny. Here, they irritated the holy hell out of me. If I had a pound for every child actor who just seems to read woodenly from a script…
The Verdict: Entertaining enough for a one-time watch but ultimately this is entirely forgettable.
