Silly people do silly things.
10 February 2019 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

Brian follows his dream to grow flowers in the country.

A good cast and interesting characters make this just about bearable. Unfortunately, it's hard to find anything else of interest here.

Brian is a florist and Faith is a teacher. The business is going down the toilet so the family sells up and move into a leaky old barn. And then the unrelenting stupidity really begins.

She hands 450 quid for a rubbish cow. They have done absolutely no research or homework about starting a farm. The two daughters move from nightmare schools in London to nightmare schools in the country.

The idiot husband whines about money every chance he gets yet showers thousands on junk they don't need. The ongoing 'bad daughter' routine is exhausting. The father is absolutely useless at everything including bring a father!

Basically, everyone apart from the youngest daughter, needs a good punch in the face!
