Ian Douglas: The British fascination with dysfunctional families continues with this film. While ostensibly about the friendship between the two little boys, it is more about Romeo's domestic problems, and the numerous attempts by the stranger to get his sister as a lover. Not really an ''enjoyable'' movie, although it does have its comic moments.
