A good fun Christmas film with a great first half
- Get Santa review by PV
The first half of this film is great. Really tight writing, a super cast including the best British character actor alive today Jim Broadbent (plus some other good actors and lines), arch dialogue, fun times.
Then, about half way through, it all goes a bit pear-shaped - like so many movies today. It tries too hard and is over-long.
Maybe it should have been a 1 hour TV drama instead of a film?
Anyway, good fun for Christmas, so 4 stars.
