Storyline

Following the misadventures of two eccentric personalities, Dee and Jamie the story is a quirky romantic comedy of two well-meaning individuals who meet and fall in love in an especially clumsy manner. Jamie and her friend Arnold are elementary school teachers. While Arnold is laid back and practical, Jamie is fun and easygoing, but has forgotten how to trust. Jamie's insular world is changed when Dee moves into the building where she's parking her camper van. Dee is tall, attractive, and even more fearful and insecure than her. A hopeless mama's boy, Dee is finally moving into his own place at the age of 30 - with his mother's help, of course. Jamie and Janet clash at first meeting, and Jamie's strange personal world is sucked into the even more bizarre reality that exists around Dee and his mother. However, Jamie remains undeterred by his behavior and a flirtatious rapport develops between the two eccentric characters. Meanwhile, Janet begins a torrid and unlikely affair with Jerome...

Thoroughly enjoyable once it gets going.
10 May 2019 | by CeciliaderossiSee all my reviews

Having watched the original version of this 'The Untouchables' I was interested in seeing this only because of Kevin Hart and Brian Cranston but at the same time was concerned I would be very disappointed.

It started off. bit rocky but improved greatly as it went on. I actually got really drawn into it by the middle, so much so much so that I could feel the tension and emotion deeply which is saying something for me.

Sadly Nicole Kidman is not a very good actress and she should not have been in this role. I found her performance in Aquaman just as bad as was her female co star in the same film. Very jerky and stiff. It is painful watching actresses who have succumbed to face immobilizing procedures. It affects their acting a lot as they are very conscious of themselves and the way they look rather than giving a great performance.
