A Fun Movie
15 March 2013 | by austinatmeetupSee all my reviews

This movie was fun. There was not a boring moment. The characters and the dialog were credible. It kept my interest the whole time. Before I watched it, I looked it up on this site, but it didn't come up. Later I realized that you can't enter an apostrophe when entering the title. I was able to bring it up when I input it without the apostrophe. I thought the title of this movie was quite appropriate, couldn't have been any better. The acting did not suffer from the flaw of many movies of this type, which is the flaw of overacting. Instead, it was well acted. The characters were interesting. I really think the rating it has so far on this site is way too low.
