| Hold on, hold on - this is just a fun film......
Hey, what's going on?

I've been reading the reviews of this film, and can't understand the (over) reaction to it.

This is a children's film. For children. Adults watching it who are not amused must have hearts of stone - even though it does not follow the current trend of having a subtext directed at the adult audience.

And yet, other reviewers are comparing it to Monty Python, Pink Floyd, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, John Majors pre 97 UK - et al. This is ridiculous.

It's a light hearted representation of the story which does not stick to the original text. I'm sure the author would have laughed in the right places. I've seen (a few) better films of the genre - I've seen many, many worse.

The low points?

  • the songs


  • the pet food factory plot (Why??)


The high points?

  • the fact the songs are very short


  • the costumes (an eclectic mix of modern, Victorian, Edwardian, and Middles Ages which I think work really well).


  • Toad's green face paint


  • The steam train.


Anyway, my children, who can be deeply cynical of films like this, loved it. I laughed. End of story.
