So I didn't miss much, right? Just about everybody around was raving about this film and telling me how wonderful it was (though my mum did say, in an evasive sort of way, "It's sweeeet, but that's about it") - I still haven't watched it. And am glad I can now use up the saved time in watching something more worthwhile, hopefully.
I wouldn't recommend it, that's for sure. :)
Vah! Congratulations Stuart, I think you've done something (well, in fact three things) I could never do: watch a no-sir film, write about it and actually make other people avoid it. Good job.
Merci, Yves! It was an interesting exercise. In the end, I was at least able to see how others could like the film, so it wasn't a total loss. :)
