Just a really sweet movie!
18 August 2019 | by ThekeybaldemasterrisesSee all my reviews

I decided to see this because there was nothing else playing at my theater that I was interested in or hadn't already seen, I just saw little snippets of footage on a monitor in the lobby and went "Sure why not". I was pleasantly surprised it's genuinely a nice movie! I'm beyond proud of Zack Gottsagen for taking on a role with such passion and dedication. I can tell he was all about it, and I'm also glad to see Shia Labeouf in a big role again because he was quite good too. The movie just had a nice touch of heart and warmth that I couldn't but help feel attracted to. It's not groundbreaking or new necessarily but it's super confident in what it's set out to do and I can feel the passion put into this project. My entire theatre loved it, and so did I!
