Not too bad a remake
14 September 2017 | by mark_derrySee all my reviews

This was made as a European version of the Mexican original. The original was released in 2013 and called "No se aceptan devoluciones" or "Instructions Not Included" and this one was released in 2016 and is called "Demain tout commence" or "Two Is a Family" Both are bilingual. This remake is pretty good but as with almost all remakes, not as good as the original. This version does skip past a few scenes and key story points but otherwise is almost scene for scene the same.
