I do not have much to say...
19 April 2017 | by carlos37andreSee all my reviews

An unpretentious, funny movie that follows a basic formula. It's not a work of art, nor does it deserve an Oscar, but it has super funny actors and sure to get some good laughs from you. Also, it does not have a very long duration as well, which makes it a fast and fun pastime.
