It was a bit more depressing than I was hoping for lol, as it looks super lighthearted on the cover. Overall still an okay movie, but not a good date night movie.

I was highly skeptical after reading earlier comments, but took a flyer on this one. Turns out to be one of the best family movies I've seen in years. It took a few minutes to begin to embrace the storyline, but when they got to Scotland and the grandfather, the entire story began to meld together. Humor, drama, and emotions play a huge role in this story. Highly recommended for the entire family.

Don't mind the title or the cover, just go ahead and watch the movie. You'll be surprised!

This movie caught my eye because it stars David Tennant, a favourite of mine. I found it to be a lovely movie that drew me up in the story and kept my interest right through, with some laughs along the way as well as poignancy. Good acting, and you really can't beat the stunning visuals of the Scottish Highlands and coast. There is an interesting cast and contrast of characters, with the children and the dying grandfather at its centre.

Not sure exactly what I expected, but was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the story. A comedy, no, but lighter moments, yes, especially with the children as they deal with their wise and not-so-easily-fooled grandfather. A delightful story of life.

interesting comedy engaging the subjects of infidelity, divorce, death, materialism, family loyalty and living well. worth the watch especially if you like Scotland.

Rated 1/10. I find it hard to believe that this movie was billed as a comedy. The back of the DVD box states, "Hilarious and uplifting comedy". It was neither, but a depressing, poorly told show about inept parents with precocious brats, that I regret watching. The only highlight was Billy Connolly.

Such a great little movie! Highly recommend.

Don't be put of by the title of this film, that sounds like just another throw-away Hollywood style family comedy with the usual, predictable plot. This one is worthwhile. If you're a fan of Billy Connelly already, then don't let the above mentioned title turn you away. Two thumbs up...

Absolutely crazy, funny and totally delightful movie! The children were amazing, grandpa was a delight, the adults zany, dysfunctional and a joy to watch. Loved this movie!
