Amusing
31 December 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I am not so fond of this kind of stuff, but I admit that's a very amusing time waster to see, especially if you are in a no special good mood. That's not TOOTSIE nor VICTOR VICTORIA either. I nevertheless recommand it for comedies fans all over the world. I guess it was released in France.
