A treatBy a customer , 21 May 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Surprisingly funny, and poignant, you love and hate and laugh with the characters. The daughter father relationship, brilliant!
I was really not keen on this film but it so deserves its award! never judge a film by its cover :)

Really goodBy Sepia (8 reviews) , 22 May 2013This film has all the elements you want from a good film - drama, humour, a plot that isn't obvious, well-acted believable characters that have real relationships with each other. The story was poignant and the setting great. I would recommend it.
Watch it, it's something differentBy a customer , 21 May 2013Funny, and something new., not worn out. The daughter-father relationship, is set out really nice. I liked Clooney and it was quite different from what he usually stars in. Watch it even if you think it's not your style!
Disappointing to say the leastBy Cathpot (2 reviews) , 20 May 2013Not exactly a comedy. And the numerous use of the F word spoilt it for me - unnecessary! Was still waiting for the film to get going when it ended! Rather disappointing. Would not recommend it.
Island sarong in dangerBy a customer , 20 May 2013A most unusual story to see George Clooney in. He is outstanding but so are many of the full cast of his family and friends ! An apparently acceptable - dare I say innocuous - set of circumstances leads to unusual meetings, even confrontations in what turns out to be ... you'll see.
did not like itBy vickig0306 (429 reviews) from Halifax , 19 May 2013I must have missed the point with this movie as all the reviews seemed to be rave reviews of how fantastic it is. I did not rate it much at all
