User Reviews

Almost didn't watch because of reviews!
17 September 2018 | by mverellenSee all my reviews

I assume everyone with a 1 star review is not into this type of film or has created a film experience that is worthy of a 10 star review. This movie is exactly what you would expect. It was late one evening and I wanted to watch something fun. I saw this movie and decided to look up reviews. I had to think about it for a bit due to the horrid reviews, decided to go with it... turned it on and was entertained the whole time... simple as that. I'd even watch a sequel.
