19 April 2019 | by amymackay-63702See all my reviews

This is a great family film that we thoroughly enjoyed. There is just not enough of these types of uplifting, positive, moving films!!! I laughed, I cried, I had a blast and felt so happy when we left the theatre. Solid performances by all the cast, my kids loved it too. Go see it, you won't regret it!!!
