Its a movie stuffed with small surprises.
22 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from the movie. Just wanted to burn time and the title had been sitting there for a awhile... And it has a such a low score in IMDb. So...

I think I like it much more than 6.6.

It soon got my attention and as the movie unraveled I was quickly mind focused on the movie. It has its edge with humor and funny outcomes of particular situations.

While the film itself its predictable, how it gets there was very hilarious. The whole scenery and cast is very appropriate to the story. Not to mention how it ends.

Spectacular!

I very much enjoyed the film and would encourage friends to see it.
