Funny, easy to watch
7 March 2020 | by doc1150See all my reviews

Not bad as I was expecting... I had fun, the script was decent and I liked the actors, all of them. I spent one hour and a half and I don't regret that. Easy to watch without thinking too much... that's what I want and I got it. Sorry for those who are looking only for Oscar movies and trying that they don't enjoy anything and they always get angry and disappointed... keep going on... you will never be satisfied... so sad guys, so sad...
