Not Bad
22 March 2020 | by mjazzguitar-800-18970See all my reviews

I don't understand why people give a movie like this a 1 out of 10. Sometimes I get the impression that they feel like they are movie critics writing for some big time newspaper. It was okay, it doesn't really bog down like some of these indie flicks that have dull, boring, ordinary scenes that are somehow supposed to be making some kind of momentous meaningful statement. The plot is fairly simple, but at least it moves along and you want to see how it turns out. They make the guy and the nanny out to be decent people, though, when he was the one cheating on his wife, and she was the one sleeping with a married man.
