  • If it happens to hit you right - that is, if you happen to catch its wavelength of tear-and-a-smile whimsicality - the movie will speak to you. show more

  • Don't be put off by the title. This is no sequel, but a surprisingly charming British comedy that is only tangentially associated with "Rambo." show more

  • As is the case with many English comedies, some of the film's slang is hard to understand. But Jennings' sprightly films proves that although England and America are countries divided by the same language, they are united by slapstick comedy. show more

    "Son Of Ra mbow" is one of the funniest, most entertaining family films in years. It is able to pull off laughs without having to go overboard or shock the audience, like most mainstream films. I laughed and cried at the end. Shame this is not playing more wider.
