I laughed out loud!
14 August 2018 | by sophie_b81See all my reviews

If you enjoy Liz Lemon and Micheal Scott and imagined what their lives would be like if they were married with kids, don't miss this movie. I laughed out loud too many times to count. The star-studded cast were all memorable and hilarious in their roles. Don't expect THE OFFICE or 30 ROCK level humor - it's diluted and a little more mainstream. But still a worthy watch - I'll be re-watching when I need a laugh!
