It was great!
17 November 2019 | by davidhinecpaSee all my reviews

I read the book (along with many others Ben Elton wrote); I found the movie added to the experience; the acting was amazing as I recall.. (I have fond recollections of Bill Hunter and his character's dysfunctional family), killer cast and not too shabby production wise.. would love to be able to find this on a streaming service.. lol..
