Please ... Don't Waste Your Time or Money!
11 April 2016 | by (Central Valley CA) – See all my reviews

I was ready for a fun, entertaining comedy and it failed at every level. Melissa and her hubby should not ever collaborate on a venture again, the writing and execution was forced which did not flow. We love Melissa, however she should have taken her concept to a professional writer. Peter Dinklage did not deliver which was completely surprising considering his career performance with Game of Thrones. For the most part he looked like he was in pain in all his scenes. I'm sorry to say, it is not even worth a future video rental. This is the first review I have written, I want to save you the pain! I wish I would have read reviews before spending my time and money. Let's wish Melissa a better script for any future movies, as this was a pure dud.
