Re: nothing to write home about (idiom)

For example:

"I saw a film last night but it was nothing to write home about."

This idiom means the film was not special. It was ok but not really good. If it had been really good, really special, I might have written a letter to my family back home telling them about it.

More about nothing to write home about in EnglishClub.com Idioms, with examples and quiz.
