Goofs

When the husbands' gang is surrounded and the van explodes, it neatly separates into two halves as it was clearly cut in two by the production crew. Real explosions are not so neat. See more »

An Easy To Watch, Well Rounded Movie
25 January 2019 | by fredgfinklemeyerSee all my reviews

01/24/2019 Immediate viewer immersion is guaranteed. A couple of slow spots, building the storylines foundation, but once that's done, your hooked. I really enjoyed this easy to watch movie, a pleasant change from the standard fare we're forced to watch. Bon Appetit
