Very enjoyable!
10 April 2018 | by rachellesuzanneSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this. I'm a big fan of romantic comedies even though most provide many eyeroll moments. They can put a smile on my face, and this did. Very lighthearted. It plays into every romcom trope! From "we have to pretend to kiss" to "we have to share a bed", they had it all. Nothing is even close to realistic, and there's very little depth, hence 6/10 despite my enjoyment.

As an American, I took some time beforehand to read up on Basque country which really helped me get the jokes more. I would recommend this if you like romcoms, foreign films, and getting a taste of other cultures. (Really what WAS up with her hair though?!)
