Just do it
21 June 2020 | by Mlle_ChouetteSee all my reviews

This is a nice feel-good inspiring movie for the whole family.

Yes, it's another one of those "A former star helps misfits do *something* and they rock it" type of movie, but as if anyone cares, we're here to spend an evening eating ice-cream and trying to relax, nobody expects it to be an Oscar-material. And the movie just does its job as goof as possible. The kids are adorable and acting pretty good, the plot is cheesy and predictable but still cute, funny and not Hallmark-level predictable. The lead actress is gorgeous doing a great job performing a rather complex and unlikable character.

Really enjoyed watching it, actually almost didn't stop it to look at the phone, so would recommend it!
