The worst thing that can happen to a movie is high expectation i think this what made people so angry with this movie i mean the cast alone should have been enough to create a hit comedy right ? ... wrong
this movie is a solid 6.5 its not bad or horrible if you just sit back and watch it for what it is a sweet light comedy
but people go into movies these days with lists of previous hit comedies to compare it with .. which causes them to miss-out on the movie they are coming to see.
i used to be like that and I reached the point where no movie was good enough ... well not any more.
this movie is good with light lovable characters and thats just fine ..!
