I really do not get it
25 May 2019 | by bobsarsfieldSee all my reviews

Very boring, drawn out supposed comedy. From the advertisements, it appears to be a female version of Superbad, but it comes off as being super bad. Horrible. Very few laughs, if any. I kept waiting for something funny to happen. But it never materializes. Do not waste you time with this movie.
