  • 5 stars "Great clean entertainment with great messages I recommend maybe scary in some scenes for small children"
  • 4 stars "Great family movie! Not to be missed. Something hopeful for the winter blahs."
  • 4 stars "My friend and I really liked and enjoyed this. I thought those kids were very well talented. Some Scenes were fun to see. It's British Accents for youth they may have to listen to the words carefully. I don't recommend this to very young kids some parts are a little scary."
