Pleasantly Surprised
19 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Lot's of wonderful reviews on Amazon as well. What a nice surprise over the normal B-reel movies I run in the background at work all day. This isn't for everyone and I feel bad for the people that trashed it so well. Life must get hard without a sense of humor. I wouldn't watch it with the kids or my parents. I wouldn't watch it with anyone that can't handle sexual content. It is by no means a porno but if you read some of the spoiler reviews you can easily guess what you might see. I did recommend this to several people I know. I'm saddened that it took me so long to find this gem. After seeing the first negative review on the main IMDb page I felt I had to write my 1st review. In my opinion this film was undeserving of such low marks but everyone is entitled to their own. Worth the time!
