This movie is also not suitable for Children. There's nudity in it and sexual situations (read baby making activities). It also has two leads who might remind you of other actors a bit. In the case of the male lead it might only be me, but he does look a bit like Chris Pratt, who's now gained a lot of Starlord ... I'm sorry I meant stardom, with his role in Guardians of the Galaxy. In the case of the female role, she does look a bit like a (better?) version of Lindsay Lohan.
Not meaning any of those comparisons in a bad way of course. And they should not distract too much from the movie/the story this is trying to tell. And while this is very straightforward and easy to follow, it is a very decent, if predictable effort. It's funny at times and it has heart. What more can you wish for?
