    Danny Deckchair: A Surefire Spirit Lifter

    If I'm not mistaken, "Danny Deckchair" is based on a true story of sorts. It follows the hilarious, everyday and - ultimately - uplifting experiences of an offbeat Aussie who ties dozens of over-sized, heavy-duty, helium-filled balloons to a deckchair and...the rest is for you to see yourself. "Danny Deckchair" is one of those films you can't help but turn to again and again when you need a laugh, are in the mood for a love story that's neither trite nor commonplace and simply want to have your spirits lifted. I bought this copy to replace one I'd lent out and never got back. It's easy to figure out why my friend never returned it: It's THAT good!
