    I really enjoyed this. It has a good story, well acted and some funny moments as well. I’ve not seen the original of this which probably helped.

It’s kind of like eating a ham and malteser sandwich with honey and garlic on it and  although it sounds awful it turns out to be quite delicious!

    I really enjoyed this as it is a lot of daft yet hugely imaginative fun. It’s all over the place but in a…
