Cliché upon cringe fest.
21 April 2018 | by jelliejuneSee all my reviews

I wasn't aware that this was a remake before I watched this.

Bella Thorne and Schwarzenegger are both one big cringefest in this movie. Which wouldn't have been necessary. I think that if there was a different cast it would have been a totally different movie, and would have gotten a higher rating. I'm unsure if much of it was improvised or perhaps the writers just don't know how teenagers talk to each other? Anywho. Five stars.
