User Reviews

Not a standard comedy movie
12 January 2020 | by endoplazmikretukulmSee all my reviews

This movie has many scenes that make you giggle but also has many more romantic, dramatic scenes as well. Some camera moves and story twists make you feel that you don't just watch a comedy movie that it's obvious creators put hell amount of effort and thoughts in it.
