Frankly - embarrassing...
25 October 2019 | by philip-00197See all my reviews

Disney without the attention to detail.

Very choppy direction ruins a reasonably decent plot and, at times, good acting.

The feeling that you are watching a 90 minute cigarette commercial doesn't exactly heighten the experience.

Nutley has, for reasons unknown, a relatively solid fan base - but surely their patience must be stretched close to breaking point with this performance.
