Pederasty?
2 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, I heard read from a reviewer that the hero of this movie marries a 14 year old when he's 19. A university sophomore with a 9th grader? Now, I did NOT see the beginning of this movie, so I don't know if they married through financial reasons, or for platonic reasons. But, JUST IN CASE they man was attracted to her, then I must give this movie 1 star. You see, I come from a place in the middle east where child marriage is popular and the girls are traumatized by that, whether they agreed to it or not. That place is ruled by religious extremists, by the way. Also, I did see an "exclusive clip" on Youtube, where Donald and the girl got married. It boggled my mind how the plot had someone accepting that the girl was 18. She looked like a 14 year old. Only a complete moron would think she was 18.
