Time of my life I'll never get back
23 November 2018 | by katieexlynnSee all my reviews

Whoever wrote this movie is the definition of "American Loser." Nothing whatsoever in this movie made sense. Not funny, dramatic, or entertaining. Watching paint dry would be more entertaining than having to sit through this nonsense.
