Best watch in some time
24 June 2016 | by ashmanbrianSee all my reviews

I love a good movie especially when I have no expectations. I sat down with my kids and was just so surprised by how good this movie really was.

I don't write reviews, but felt I simply had to for this one.

It was pure entertainment from start to finish wonderfully funny and just restored a little bit of faith in the guild of acting and humanity.

If you are in the mood for an up beat feel good movie with a lot of laughs this is a pleasantly easy watch, that the whole family can enjoy.

Well done and thank you.
