It starts promisingly, builds towards something Roald Dahl cutting and cute, and kind of comes to pieces, like crumb cake.

Though the film-makers are indebted to Edward Gorey and Lemony Snicket - and pay musical homage to Mark Mothersbaugh's work on The Royal Tenenbaums - they find their own voice, when it counts.

There's a lot going on in The Willoughbys, yet if you can get on board with its manic energy and accelerated plotting, the Netflix animated family comedy-adventure has an oddball charm that works surprisingly well.

With a nicely twisted sense of humour that will appeal to adults and kids... this charms thanks to the quirky plot, sprightly pacing and bright animation
