    This is my second favorite movie! I love this movie for three big reasons, Abigail Breslin, Jodie Foster and Gerard Butler. I love this absolutely adorable story. I loved Jodie Foster in this, I have been a fan of hers since I was a little girl in the 1970s watching her in Disney films. 🙂 Jodie’s character in this was hilarious. The problem with Gerard’s character was that it wasn’t more of it, but it was still fabulous. Abigail Breslin is a little dynamo I first saw her in the movie Signs and have been a die hard fan ever since. She is one to watch, for sure, like little Miss Dakota Fanning, another little powerhouse. 🙂 I need to get this book. My favorite character in the film hands down has to be Fred the Lizard, though. LOL 🙂 His little squeaks and squawks fraught with significance were just too precious for words. 🙂

  2. i enjoyed this film and recommend it to all the family. gerrys parts were brilliant with jodie and very funny, and he was a very caring dad to abigails character. i liked the fact that gerry played both roles as they were totally different. it was a very entertaining film and full of comedy and adventure. the three main actors were great and played off each other. i felt sorry for gerry having to get wet so often, especially as he had just recovered from that bad infection he had in rocknrolla. it is probably what caused him to get ill again in game, as he hadnt fully recovered from the first time, and all that cold water and weather didnt help. never mind at least he survived and is 100 percent better now. oh yeh
