No substance
30 December 2013 | by chajankaSee all my reviews

The film starts off fine, and both Quinn and Celentano are likable but the plot becomes rather silly without being genuinely funny. The tricks and cons are not in the least believable, and all the other characters are very poorly developed as are their relationships with the main characters. The overall production quality is rather good, and the actors are fine - it's the plot that I find cheap. There are some cute moments here, but nothing really funny and all the twists and turns are as implausible as possible.

I would recommend this film only to kids, it should have been a cartoon anyway.
