    A quick bit of consumer advice - save your money. It is complete pap and I suspect a kid would think exactly the same. The books are supposed to be good though.
  2. Radio Ones round up of good film releases to take the kids/family to this christmas said that the Golden Compass was not very good, but that Fred Klaus (that brother of Santa film) was actually very funny. So maybe try that one instead some point in the next week?
  3. no no no no no, just got home from seeing that pile of excrement, It was rubbish, the only reason I didn't ask for my money back was cos the tickets were free!

    It really is a big pile of poo and about as funny as terminal cancer. If I tell you that the only part of the film that even got close to putting a faint smile on my face was a scene where santa and fred have a snowball fight you may get a hint as to how dire it is.

    Edited to add there were quite a few kids in the audience and I didn't hear a single guffaw during the whole film...
  4. My Godson, 11 years, told me that Golden Compass "sucks out loud" (Canadian terminology)
