Very Cute and Lovely Romantic Comedy! 10/10
7 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Matchbreaker" was so fun to watch and put me in a very happy mood :) the very cute love story along with some comedic moments make the whole film very interesting to watch. I definitely recommend watching this ! The music of the movie fit the plot line and 'feeling' very well. I actually purchased the album of movie music as well because I liked it so much! I thought the actors were amazing in how they portrayed their characters- very believable and also lovable. It was also great to see the beloved Christina Grimmie in this movie. This is a great movie to watch with the family ! I really do hope to see more from these actors and film makers. I rate this film a 10/10 because it is very cute and funny and also brings tears to your eyes.
