Funny for what it is
22 April 2021 | by Rizq_RoseSee all my reviews

For those who just binged watched all of Shakespeare's plays and for some reason decided to watch this movie and your wrath inspire you to write a scathing review on IMDB? It's funny for what it is, don't expect Shakespeare or Hitchcock, please. Plus consider this -- actors have bills to pay too. NO spoilers that's all folks.
