A somewhat embarrassing mess
10 April 2019 | by gjwSee all my reviews

This is a very peculiar little film, and not in a good way. I honestly have no idea what it was trying to say, or whether it was trying to be satirical or sincere. Either way, it failed. The character they created was too incompetent and childish for anyone to be sincerely rooting for her bizarre agenda, yet was too sympathetic and harmless to be made an object of scornful ridicule. It's almost as if a 10-year-old girl, with an age-appropriate obsession for glitter and unicorns, wrote the script, not realizing that an adult woman behaving that way would be considered insane, or how exquisitely bad the character's taste is.
