Quite a lovely one
22 September 2015 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

My advice? Watch it? nd don't watch the trailer, there is no need

I wasn't expecting a typical American comedy, since I usually appreciate Simon Pegg's work. But I wasn't expecting to enjoy it this much. It seemed to me like a romantic movie but realistic in many ways

  • Including the fact that the actors are not typically young and


gorgeous from every angle - They are beautiful yes, in their own authentic way, much like their characters I think.

And of course it's a cliché film in many ways, but still made me smile and laugh out loud many times. I will recommend to my friends who appreciate quality cinema. It's one of the good ones!
