| If Enid Blyton had written Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
Well, it falls apart under logical scrutiny, but it's so chock full of charm, it doesn't matter.

Five kids pull together to save the seemingly doomed House of Bastable. Their ideas on how this should be done are bizarre, outrageous, generally unsuccessful and great fun. Digging a trap hole in the garden to catch bailiffs is just one of them! Meanwhile, distracted dad works clumsily towards inventing the fridge!

An all star cast (mostly buried under fake moustaches) make this even more enjoyable as they all embrace the silliness with their best efforts. It's a feel-good fairy tale and, of course, things work out well in the end! Wonderful stuff for the whole family!
