not surprising. easy nice
24 March 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Maybe, the best motif to see this comedy is Cedric the Entertainer. because, except him, all is well known. jokesr, tricks, the levels of story, performances and roles who are just sketches remembering the old classic comedies. but, sure, Matthew Perry and Elizabeth Hurley are a nice couple and the holes of story are in decent way covered. and, maybe, that represents the lead motif for not be real critic about the film.
