7/10 for being funny and sweet
3 September 2020 | by stklausSee all my reviews

This is def not a critics movie, its not demanding, it has no intellectual message, but it's fun! It's a family film, kids will like it, but there are a lots of good jokes for grown-ups too, so its a perfect family movie, this is light entertainment for having a good time and you can get drunk and watch it. lol And it's kind of old school, reminded me of "Home Alone" and "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" but with a new vibe.

Actually a perfect movie to relax, that won't bore you.
