Billy Connolly was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and early prostate cancer shortly before he was due to start work on this film but went ahead without mentioning his condition to anybody. See more »
When the children put the truck's selector into 1, there is a sound effect of gears crunching. It is an automatic so no such noise would have been made. See more »
I will always think of this as a feature-length 2.4 Children. It made me laugh aloud, it made me shed a tear. There was one tiny subplot that wasn't tied up (Odin) which lost it a point, but well worth seeing. Family friendly, because, honestly, what kid hasn't heard swearing before?
The kids are fabulous, the adults are insane and the whole mess of a birthday party is hilariously tragic. I will happily look out for more films by this writer/director pair.
Have a watch of this film. A slight niggle is the unrealistic speed with which they navigated the M25. That just doesn't happen in real life, though the standstill traffic on the M1 was spot on.
