Great lighthearted comedy with wonderful storyline!
27 September 2017 | by safoora-41413See all my reviews

This is a great light hearted comedy that anyone can relate to! It is a beautifully executed storyline that gives you perspective on the struggles of our immigrant relatives. The characters are wonderful and the acting is really well done. This story is exactly what was needed with the current political climate. I truly enjoyed this family friendly movie with a great message!
