A la Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rur&hellip by Ian Moore
6 of 8 people found the following review helpful
I'd hate to write a review which just said 'meh' but there's a bit of this here. It's not the worst book in the world (as everyone knows, that's 'Of Mice and Men') but it's nowhere near to being one of the best.
Ian Moore has moved with his family to France, something that was on the cards for him anyway as his wife is French and they have discussed it many times.

Paul (Blu-ray + DVD) <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Simon Pegg

The film is excellent, if you like Pegg/Frost comedies you will love this. It's that simple.

One word of caution, no complaint mind, but the iTunes digital version included here only works with a UK or US iTunes account. If, like me, you live outside the UK and have a non-UK iTunes account you won't be able to download a version from iTunes.

The on disc digital copy is great, and the Windows media digital version is included on the disc so will work for everyone but if you are specifically after an iPad version of the movie then buy a copy from the country where your iTunes account is held.
