The girls wanted to see the S Club film this weekend. Sigh.
What can I say? Freja (6½) loved it. She got most of the jokes. (Though thankfully not the vibrating egg one - which I felt was rather out of place, to be frank.)
Ella (4¾), though, was all at sea. The plot, such as it was, involved a set of clones of the band. Every thirty seconds or we had "is that the real one, or the robot, Daddy?" Bless her.
The music was unadventurous but workmanlike pop, as you'd expect. Again, Freja loved it. As you'd expect - she's pretty much their target audience
On the plus side, that Rachel Stevens scrubs up OK, it must be said.
And it was ten times better that The Jungle Book 2! A real stinker. Three reprises of the The Bare Necessities - and when you heard the new songs, you know why they made so much of the old ones. Avoid.
Oh, it's Ella's first day at school today. Good luck Ella!Posted to Parenting by Simon Brunning at April 28, 2003 02:44 PM
