The Bad Mothers Handbook
2 March 2007 | by jessesgirl-comSee all my reviews

I thought this was excellent, i found it very thoughtful towards young mothers, heart touching with the arguments between the daughter and the mother also the grandmother and the mothers, it was heart breaking seeing the old lady crying i was so upset. I love Catherine Tate as this part very different from her *Am I Bovvered* sketches also that boy was FITT! Very sweet too. I feel this was an excellent performance especially from the daughter. I was praying that the T.V was going to say that it will be out on DVD and it is i was thrilled!! I'm watching it now .hehe. In conclusion... THIS FILM IS BRILLIANT I LOVE IT SO MUCH!! ox-The-Ice-Princess-xo
