Foot tapping movie
5 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of this movie. It was only perchance that I saw it in Lucas Black's role credits. I watched it all the way through and found it was a charming, very funny but not in a harmful way, foot tapping film. It was not going to win Oscars but anyone can watch this and end up smiling all the way through. Sometimes it doesn't matter whether you take films seriously as long as you enjoy the 90 minutes without looking at a clock. This film will cheer you up and make you take life not too seriously which is sometimes what people need in this day and age. I like Oscar winning films or serious films as much as the next person but people are so desensitised to emotions that they forget that life is too short and you should relax & enjoy yourself along the way. Smile, it won't hurt you!
