The cast is pleasant enough to enliven the generic material, though much of writer-director Marcus Markou's dialogue is beyond salvaging.

Siobhan Synnot

An undemanding comedy drama, but Stephen Dillane and Georges Corraface give crowd-pleasing performances.

Observer [UK]

This flat, feelgood family story transposes the cliches of Zorba the Greek to the present day.

In its favour, it's a movie with heart, charm and well-crafted characters.

There are zero surprises here, but a strong cast and a decent script add up to dependable entertainment.

Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger was told his name was too big for movie posters, Marcus Markou's inspirational debut feature film has an impossible title on purpose.

Daily Express

It's a bit laboured and not funny enough but has charm and heart.

Rich Cline

Some meaty themes and complex performances add badly needed weight to this somewhat simplistic British comedy-drama.

Mike McCahill

It's a throwback, but relaxed, sweet and funny with it: a first feature that makes an impression by not pushing too hard to make an impression.

It gets by almost wholly on hangdog charm, but that's an underrated asset, and so is Dillane, delivering a terse and rueful performance that's typically excellent.

Stella Papamichael
Radio Times

A late pitch at pathos isn't quite so convincing, but otherwise this is a fresh, funny and poignant snapshot of ethnic life in London.

Matthew Turner

Likeable British recession comedy enlivened by a strong support cast and a topical, engagingly feelgood central theme, though it's slightly let down by an underwritten script and a frustrating central performance from Stephen Dillane.

Total Film

Yes, it's sentimental and predictable, but there's a warmth and charm about Marcus Markou's feature debut that makes it hard to resist.
