Going nowhere slowly...
28 June 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

I kept waiting for the film to get direction but it never did. It's a pity the writers and producers concentrated more on sing and dance for the lack of a plot. Even the love triangle is forced and unconvincing. Nothing interesting happened. This is a 'Grease' wannabe that fell completely flat.
