The satire is strong with this one
20 August 2019 | by JetSetThomasSee all my reviews

The plot is great and in perfect line with Lisa's character development; the gags are a-plenty and are both well-written and well-delivered; the satire manages to hit home and be funny at the same time. There's even a bit of nuanced realism at the end, so it avoids looking preachy.
